Bhutan, officially known as Kingdom of Bhutan is the world’s last independent Buddhist Kingdom. The country has recently changed an absolute monarchy to a constitutional monarchy, in the year 2008. Bhutan is also widely popular because of Gross National Happiness – coined by the Fourth Dragon King Jigme Singye Wangchuck. Hence, Bhutan is the only country to measure happiness to Gross Domestic Product. King Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck, is the current reigning Druk Gyalpo or “Dragon King” of Bhutan.
Prime Minister of Bhutan is Lyonchhen Tshering Tobgay, leader of the People’s Democratic Party.
Bhutan borders China to the north and India to the south, east and west. To the west, it is separated from Nepal by the Indian state of Sikkim; and further south it is separated from Bangladesh by the Indian states of Assam and West Bengal. Thimphu is Bhutan’s capital and largest city, while Phuntsholing is Bhutan’s financial centre.
The tourism industry in Bhutan is relatively young having been initiated only in 1974 at the time of the coronation of the fourth King. The Royal Government of Bhutan adheres strongly to a policy of ‘High Value, Low Impact’ tourism which serves the purpose of creating an image of exclusivity and high- yield for Bhutan.
