In Thimphu, you can experience both harmonious traditions and a modern lifestyle. There are shopping centers, continental restaurants, nightclubs, internet cafes, ATMs, and foreign stock exchanges in Thimpu. But the traditional values are carefully preserved amidst the signs of modernization in the museums, monasteries, traditional markets, and everyday lifestyle.
Even a few years ago, traffic congestion was an unknown term in Bhutan. The city of 100,000 inhabitants Thimphu still goes without any traffic signal. Policemen stand in decorated booths and control the traffic with fabulous hand movements.
The capital city is the commercial hub and the center of Government administration of Bhutan. It is also home to famous Buddhist sites such as Memorial Chorten, Cheri Monastery, Tango Monastery, etc. The massive fortress and monastery Tashichho Dzong is a spectacular treat to the eyes. It is the Government seat of Bhutan since 1952 and is now acting as the King’s office, secretariat, and office of other ministries. The prime attraction of Tashichho Dzong is the gold-leaf roofs that make it really outstanding.
You can also visit the local markets like ABC Bazar to explore traditional products. If your Bhutan tour includes a Sunday, then you must explore the weekend market in Thimphu. You can purchase fresh produces while interacting with the locals.
