Monasteries in Bhutan

Bhutan is traditionally known as Drukyul, the ‘land of the Drukpa Kagyu school’, a reference to the tradition of Tibetan Buddhism that has come to dominate Bhutanese spiritual life since the 17th century. However, since the word druk also means dragon, the country is often poetically known as the ‘land of the thunder dragon’ (an emblem portrayed on the national flag). The English name ‘Bhutan’ probably derives from the Sanskrit bhotanta, meaning ‘extremity of Tibet’; in Tibetan, the country is most frequently known as Lhomon, or Southern Mon – harking back to the seventh and eighth centuries when Bhutan was firmly entrenched within the orbit of Tibetan imperial power. ..Readmore

Most budget travellers head for the Banglamphu district, where if you’re not careful you could end up watching DVDs all day long and selling your shoes when you run out of money. The district is far from having a monopoly on Bangkok accommodation, but it does have the advantage of being just a short walk from the major things to do in the Ratanakosin area: the dazzling ostentation of the Grand Palace and Wat Phra Kaeo, lively and grandiose Wat Pho and the National Museum’s hoard of exquisite works of art. Once those cultural essentials have been seen, you can choose from a whole bevy of lesser sights, including Wat Benjamabophit (the “Marble Temple”), especially at festival time, and Jim Thompson’s House, a small, personal museum of Thai design.

Spiked with scores of high-rise buildings of concrete and glass, it’s a vast flatness that holds an estimated population of eleven million, and feels even bigger. Yet under the shadow of the skyscrapers you’ll find a heady mix of chaos and refinement, of frenetic markets, snail’s-pace traffic jams and hushed golden temples, of dispiriting, zombie-like sex shows and early-morning alms-giving ceremonies. Plenty of visitors enjoy the challenge of taking on the “Big Mango”, but one way or another, the place is sure to get under your skin. ..Readmore
