“When it comes to lovely countries,” Micato’s old friend Seamus O’Banion once wrote, “Bhutan is a country more unlike any other country than any other country.” To wit: It has wisely and successfully avoided the mass tourism that would erode its unique, vibrantly intact culture. It is endlessly lovely: its Himalayan foothill air is clear, its environment untrammeled, its countrysides and little towns idyllic. And as the world’s only Buddhist monarchy, its program of Gross National Happiness is a moral beacon. In short, Bhutan gets it right.
Aman, one of the world’s most luxe hoteliers, is beautifully in synch with the kingdom’s thoughtful ways; we’ll be ensconced in three Aman properties: in the capital, Thimphu; in the historic old capital of Punakha, and in the serene Paro Valley.
