OH Boy they are not only clever and Great Leaders the Bhutanese but they are also handsome. I am so glad I am marrying an Asian, Chinese and I told him about Bhutan today that I want to go there and learn about their style of Government. I love this GROSS NATIONAL HAPPINESS Philosophy. Funnily enough I did a blog post on Bhutan yesterday on my blog. I am going to write some more. I am in love with it.

Congratulations to the King and people of Bhutan!

I was interested in Bhutan since the King went to my country, Thailand, in the past. Therefore, one day, I visited your website and I really liked it because there was plenty of useful information. I had to thank you very much for that. You were right; Bhutan is blessed with the inspirational King.

I wish I could visit Bhutan one day in the future. I also have many questions to discuss as to learn more about your country. If you do not mind me, my email is pongpipat_san@hotmail.com

Hello, I write a blog at www.banknotenews.com. I understand Bhutan has or will issue new 50 and 1,000 ngultrum notes shortly to commemorate the new king. I would like to report on these notes with images. Can anyone who is in Bhutan supply 300-dpi images of same, as well as information about the notes? I will be pleased to link back to your site and give full credit.
