Best Experiences On Our Romantic Trip In Bhutan
Our 5 days in Bhutan vacation was a mix of adventure, thrill, and a lot of fun. Here is the list of places that you should visit on your vacation to make the most out of it. From Paro to Thimphu, Bhutan surprised us by its impressively beautiful cities and towns. Take a look!
1. Paro: Explored The Monasteries!
Visiting Paro was the best decision we made on our Bhutan 5 day trip. From stunning monasteries to iconic temples, Paro had a lot of attractions that we explored. Paro is a true gem of Bhutan which you must visit if you are planning a honeymoon in Bhutan. From apple orchards to sacred sites of monasteries and from historic fortresses to ravishing sights Paro has something or the other for all kinds of travelers. Do add this quaint town on your 5 days in Bhutan for honeymoon itinerary.
2. Taktsang Trek: A Mix Of Serenity, Relaxation & Some Adventure!
Paro Taktsang monastery is an incredible place which made us fall in love with Paro. A sacred Buddhist site built in 1692 and also known as Tiger’s Nest, Taktsang was always a place which we wanted to explore and an enticing trek to this spot made our vacation extraordinary. It took us around four to five hours to do the round trip trek and these hours were really filled with breathtaking views and a thrilling trail. After a tiring trek, we straightaway headed to take a relaxing hot stone water bath which is an ancient tradition and should be on every visitor’s itinerary. You can soak in the water for about an hour after the tiring trek while sipping your favorite beverage. This was one of the most enthralling things in our 5 days Bhutan tour!

3. Thimphu: A Fun Road Trip!
The next day we left for Thimphu and it was no ordinary journey, it was an exciting road trip on which we completely enjoyed ourselves. We visited the Buddha point which had a humungous yet marvelous Buddha Dordenma Statue and we experienced snowfall at this point. We roamed around in Thimphu city center and visited some of the best shopping avenues in Bhutan. We also visited Pheuntsoling which is an amazing small border town and has picturesque landscapes. The highlight of our Bhutan 5 day trip to Pheuntsoling was to see the camaraderie between the two countries at the border. All in all the last day of our vacation was just perfect!
Food In Bhutan
We had food mostly in the hotel but one place travelers should definitely go to is Simply Bhutan in Thimphu for authentic Bhutanese food along with traditional activities. Also, for people who love dim sums and Momos, you should try the small places near the clock tower in Thimphu. Bhutanese food was really delicious, you must try all the local dishes.
Shopping In Bhutan
We explored quite a lot of shopping venues in Thimphu and we would strongly recommend every shopaholic to visit the capital city of Bhutan for a soul-satisfying shopping spree! Handicrafts and Artifacts from Thimphu are some of the most famous things to buy in Bhutan.
Hotels In Bhutan
We stayed at three hotels in Bhutan which provided us top-notch services. We could not have asked for better properties as they provided terrific facilities. On the first day of our Bhutan 5 day trip, we stayed at Kuenphen in Paro which was an adorable hotel placed in the middle of the hills. Kuenphen in Paro served us delectable food and pampered us with great hospitality. On the third day of our vacation, we stayed at Peaceful resort in Thimphu which was located near the city center and was a comfortable hotel with good food. The third property was Park hotel in Pheuntsoling which was an average hotel. Our stay in all three properties was satisfactory.
