5 Reasons To Visit Bhutan Just Like Virat & Anushka!

Published

on

Bhutan

Bhutan, a Buddhist kingdom on the Himalayas’ eastern edge, is known for its monasteries, fortresses and dramatic landscapes that range from subtropical plains to steep mountains and valleys. In the High Himalayas, peaks such as 7,326m Jomolhari are popular trekking destinations. Paro Taktsang monastery (also known as Tiger’s Nest) clings to cliffs above the forested Paro Valley.

We all love taking a break from our busy work schedule and spend some quality time with our family and friends. Just like us, Bollywood celebrities also enjoy spending time with their loved ones. And one power couple that has given us major travel goals recently is Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli.

Earlier this month, the duo was seen having a gala time in Bhutan. Both Anushka and Virat shared several photos from their getaway on social media.

Here, check out 5 reasons why you should visit Bhutan 

1) When you travel through Bhutan, you will find many spectacular views that will take your breath away. Here you will find steep mountains crisscrossed by networks of swift rivers. The climate in this country is always good for the travellers. However, October to December is the ideal time to visit Bhutan.

2) The beautiful country of Bhutan offers several tourist attractions. From Paro Taktsang to Gangteng Monastery and Punakha Dzong, the travel bug inside you will get fully satisfied here. Interestingly, the capital of Bhutan, Thimpu has one of the largest statues of Buddha made of bronze and gilded in gold towering over the city.

3) Bhutan is also an amazing place for foodies. Ema datshi, the national dish of Bhutan is a very spicy delicacy made with cheese and chilies. Even if you don’t enjoy spicy food, you must try Ema datshi for sure.

4) The rich heritage and culture of Bhutan is an important reason why one should visit this country. More than two-thirds of the Bhutanese citizens follow Vajrayana Buddhism and around one-third follow Hinduism. One can easily get to see the Bhutanese culture and traditions in their dressing style, way of speaking, and cultural activities.

5) Bhutan is also an amazing place for adventurists. There are many places in Bhutan where one can get a great trekking experience. Even Anushka and Virat went trekking during their trip.

Bhutan is a beautiful country on the eastern edge of the Himalayas and is popular for its monasteries, fortresses and breathtaking landscapes that range from subtropical plains to steep mountains and valleys. And just like Anushka and Virat, this Buddhist kingdom should be on the top of your travel list too.

By

It has been a year and a half since Anthony Bourdain’s death, and the culinary world is still recovering. His work had an incredible impact on people all around the world. The approach he employed in his shows showed a deep respect and curiosity for the many different cultures. And thus, the news of a posthumous book by him certainly has everyone excited. It is titled “World Travel: An Irreverent Guide.”

Anthony Bourdain’s Book

It is said that he started writing the book along with his friend, Laurie Woolever. Woolever also worked as his assistant for a long time. Moreover, it was he who brought this project to completion. Though the book is mostly written by Anthony, Woolever has added essays and more information to it as well.

These essays have been penned by people who were close to Anthony Bourdain and knew him personally. 

World Travel: An Irreverent Guide

The publisher of the book has let us in on more about the book. It is going to offer delightful introductions into how to get to various travel locations. Apart from that, you will also find suggestions on where and what to eat when there. Bourdain had a distinct personality on screen. His wit, charm, and warm persona are sure to shine through in the book as well. He was a chef once too. Thus, his expert knowledge and experience over the years as a TV host (Parts Unknown) also makes the book a must read.

More about the book…

The cover of the book is stunning too. It is a sketch by Tony Millionaire. It shows Anthony is sitting outside a cafe in Paris. You can buy this book on October. And pre-orders are available now.

Fans and admirers from around the world are keenly looking forward to this book. So many of his recommendations are unique and special. There are instances where people have chosen to follow his suggestions on the shows, and found a cafe or dish they’d have otherwise missed out on. He truly valued the people around him wherever he went. The unforgettable and remarkable work he did in his lifetime will always be cherished.

At 61, Anthony Bourdain passed away due to suicide in June of 2018. At that time, it sparked a much needed conversation about suicide, depression, and mental health in general too.
