Consider one of the most exotic Asian honeymoon destinations - Bhutan, the country of monasteries and temples. Check out the best time to visit and prices on accommodation .

bhutanSearching for a dream honeymoon location? Check out Shangri La. Set for Bhutan, Land of the Dragon, land of eerie splendour and craftily preserved magnificence. A land of mountains and waterfalls. It is where you wake up to crispy mornings and cheeping birds; it is here you can stretch out to pick the stars from a blinking night sky. Bhutan, the legendary realm of temples and monasteries, with its luxurious capital, Thimpu, the celebrated city of Paro with its superb Himalayan panorama, the ancient capital of Punakha and the fabulous summits of Mount Jhomolhari. Thimphu is a majestic city, a rather remarkable capital that houses riches like the Thangka Painting School and the Tashichho Dzong.

Guests can visit the place only in groups by pre-arrangement with the Tourism Authority of Bhutan. Indians need no passport but should have any form of identification — a driver's license, election card or passport.

Bhutan has neither domestic air services nor railroads. You may rent cars from individuals or travel agents. You can use buses, but they are slow and disturbingly crowded. There are also unmetered taxis operating in Thimpu and Paro and the rates are unfixed. The major tourist sites are accessible on good roads.

The best time to visit Bhutan is in spring and autumn, mainly the months of October and November, when the skies are cloudless and you can observe astonishing views of the mountain peaks. If you wish to watch a Bhutanese festival, particularly the masked dance of the monks, you should go there in October and March. And in winter you may have a quiet honeymoon as the place is rather uncrowded. 

Accommodation available in Bhutan is quite, ranging in class. And in the peak season, it is almost impossible to get bookings. In case you haven’t booked ahead, note that the amenities in budget hotels may be rather poor. Fares vary from US$20-50 for economy and mid-class lodging, to $200 and above for exclusive.
