Bhutan, the Land of the Thunder Dragon, has plenty of sites to visit and delicious food to eat all over the country.
The Culture Trip is a great website highlighting some of Bhutan’s many venues to experience local food and art as well as a reading list of authentic Bhutanese literature! These are only a few of the great places our teachers visit to learn about the fascinating culture of Bhutan!
We are excited to share with you some of the amazing school development projects our teachers have been working on within their schools!
