Glimpses of Thimphu streets

We, 5 friends, had a few days trip to Bhutan. Thimphu was the first city that we visited. A nice and clean city with very friendly people.

We have seen almost all the Bhutanese in their traditional dress. It is customary or mandatory to be dressed in traditional dress for offices, schools or collages.

Both sides of the road you will find shops well decorated. Window shopping could be a good time-pass.
