Vietnam Bhutan special charter tour- 5 Days
Tour Program: 5 Days, 4 Nights
Bhutan is the last Mahayana Buddhist Kingdom, and the teachings of this school of Buddhism are a living faith among its people. Spirituality exists even in the urban centers where the spinning of prayer wheels, the murmur of mantras and the glow of butter lamps in the houses are still important features of their everyday life. Bhutan’s unique architecture is one of the most striking physical features; the color of house and buildings is a distinct source of aesthetic pleasure.
