Gross National Happiness is an official development goal in Bhutan. We haven’t seen the numbers, but we’re pretty confident they’ve hit their annual targets. The people have a wonderful sense of humour and innocence, disarming and endearing in equal measure. Set against the backdrop of sacred mountains, this isolated kingdom offers an entirely unique travel experience that is sure to humble and amaze. Granted permission to be among the mere 14,000 visitors permitted each year, we make the most of it.
