But how this small country gained so much tourism?
History behind flourishing tourism
Did you know that tourism in Bhutan was just half a century old?
The country was opened to foreign travellers in 1974 with less arrival of tourist. The government was promoting a low number of tourists by not harming the local environment and culture. Till 1983 when Paro airport started having regular flights, the tourist population was just 1500! Wasn’t it too less?
However, over the years Bhutan slowly started gaining its tourism and at present, the number has increased to 2,50,000 approx!
Concern towards nature and beauty
