BHUTAN Group Tours & Short Stay holidays

BHUTAN Overview

Time - Bhutan is 4 hours behind Australian EST

Language - Dzongkha is the official national language, however, English is also widely spoken as it is taught in all schools. The contrasting diversity of the main ethnic groups has meant that a number of different languages and dialects are also spoken throughout the kingdom.

Entry Requirements - Passports must be valid for six months beyond the length of stay. Visas are required for Australian travellers, the price of which is already included in the fully inclusive price of all our group tours for Australian passport holders (providing all applications are received by Wendy Wu Tours within the required visa processing time frame). The Bhutanese visa is issued by our operators in India as they are not available from Australia. A visa authority letter is issued after your travel arrangements have been paid in full and the actual visa is entered into your passport on arrival at Paro airport or at the Phuentsholing border crossing.



Set in the Paro Valley, the town of Paro is home to many sacred sites and historical buildings scattered throughout the area. Paro is the gateway to Bhutan as it has the only international airport in the country.


Thimphu is famous for being the most unique capital city in the world because of its untouched natural beauty alongside modern development. Established as the capital around 1955, it lies in the valley along the banks of the Wang Chhu (river). The city’s charm is influenced by its wealth of museums and places of historic  interest. Wander along the main street and into shops, all of which are decorated in a traditional Bhutanese-style, to really appreciate the uniqueness of Thimphu.
