Thimphu the capital city of Bhutan is one of the culturally rich places that is a must see when you are in Bhutan.
Highlights: It is a charming capital city that is nestled in the Himalayas with the magnificent sites of the Chuu River which passes through it. Interestingly, this is also the only city in the world that has no traffic lights.

The new buildings here can be built only in the Bhutanese style and only up to a certain height. You can take the Last Shangrila Tour to explore the renowned landmarks of the capital. Some top attractions here include the National Memorial Chorten, Tashichho Dzong and Motithang Takin Preserve.
