Despite a 14 per cent rise in visitor numbers Bhutan remains unpolluted

Bhutan

The king is celebrating his sixtieth birthday, and that means a big party! To mark this day in honour of Jigme Singye Wangchuck, the country’s fourth king, Bhutan has declared ’Visit Bhutan Year 2015’. And a king who back in the eighties formulated the concept of ’gross national happiness’ (as opposed to the gross national product) surely knows how to celebrate. ’Celebrate Happiness’ is also a fitting slogan for Visit Bhutan Year 2015.
