All types of local / Indian / international alcohol brands are available in Bhutan and at a very cheaper rate and there is no issue about drinking at public places provided Tuesday as a dry day where alcohol’s were not allow to sell or drink. But the real thing is the home-made arra and chang, which you'll taste when you visit a home or an archery contest.

  1. Suja

Suja or butter tea is Bhutanese famous tea meaning Su: Churn and Ja: Tea. Suja is made from tea leaves, water, salt and yak butter. However, in recent times, butter made from cow's milk is increasingly used, given its wider availability and lower cost.

Back in the olden days, the preparation of Suja was quite a big task. To make this specialty in Bhutan, a wooden churner was used to churn the butter for the tea. These days, however, a simple blender does the trick and with tea leaves available in little packets for sale in the market, making Suja is easier than ever before.

Tsampa: Tsampa is a hearty, nutty-tasting flour made from roasted barley.The most common way to eat tsampa is to mix it by hand with butter tea, dried dri cheese (the dri is the female of the yak species) and sometimes sugar, to form a dough

  1. Beer of Bhutan

Bhutan now has many beers, including craft beers. Bhutan’s beer culture is rapidly growing and Bhutanese are developing a taste for ingenious craft beers along with the already sought after strong beers.  Many now prefer them over home brewed alcohols like Ara, Bangchang, and Singchang. Ara is made of grains like wheat and is distilled. The beverage is usually clear like water, unlike Bangchang and Singchang which are fermented and usually appear creamy or white in color. The commercialization of home-brewed alcohols is illegal in Bhutan. 

  1. Druk 11000 can be found in every corner of Bhutan. It is a strong beer. Available in cans and bottles
  2. Bhutan Glory is an amber ale brewed by Serbhum Micro Brewery in Thimphu. Available in cans and on tap. This is my favourite beer.

  4. Red Rice Lager by Namgay Artesenal Brewery in Paro. Available in 330ml bottles and on tap at popular bars.
  5. Red Panda. It is weiss beer from Bumthang. Sold in bottles and from the tap. I used to drink Red Panda before the Amber ale came into the market.
  6. Wheat beer by Namgay Artesenal Brewery. Available in 330ml bottles and on tap at popular bars.

Sure Bhutan is more expensive than India or Nepal however lets put this into perspective! Because the Bhutanese Government has imposed an ‘all inclusive’ nightly tariff structure, for all tourist visitors, Bhutan tours can ‘appear’ to be expensive. In our 9 years+ experience with Bhutan we regularly receive comments from returning visitors on how great the ‘value for money’ genuinely is.

Considering every visitor has access to a private guide, driver, private vehicle and a land package including all meals, accommodation, sightseeing, entry fees, transfers, taxes, Govt Royalties & visa fees it is indeed excellent value for money. And….Bhutan is such a privilege to visit!

Bhutan is ranked as one of the safest tourist destinations on our planet-it has an extremely low crime rate and people do not exhibit that irritating invasive curiosity that you find in many other destinations. I

Our Client Testimonials

  • 我和朋友在2015年7月开始计划不丹的旅行,直接找到了zoid jin tours。开始办理签证的时候遇到了很多波折,但是旅行社的工作人员非常耐心,一直用微信保持联系,确认行程和酒店的相关细节。也许是因为朋友之前也推荐过这一家旅行社,外加平常的工作也相对比较繁忙,没有太多的时间整理不丹的旅行计划,我们完全委托旅行社策划整个行程。在不丹的8天过的充实而丰富,导游是虔诚的佛教徒,对于寺庙建筑与宗教历史的种种都娓娓道来。其中有一个细节让我记忆深刻,在去不丹之前我和朋友就在微信中透露出想要穿当地的民族服饰游览寺庙,旅行社的工作人员非常细心的交代了导游。我们一到不丹,导游就带我们买到了物美价廉的民族服饰,下午的时候就麻烦酒店的小姑娘帮我们换上,带我们参观寺庙。而不丹人进寺庙的时候需要佩戴红色的围巾搭配传统服饰,导游早早就准备好围巾给我们。整个旅途中,旅行社满足了我们的各种要求,比如更换行程,选不同的餐厅就餐,虽然是两人包团的形式,可是更像是自由行,还不用担心交通。所以强烈推荐zoid jin tours,感谢他们的照顾,我们的不丹行开心又圆满。小豆子
    With Regards Doudou Li
  • Dear Sangay, Thanks again for the fantastic tour; we had a great time in Bhutan.Melinda and I had a wonderful time in Bhutan. The hotels were extraordinary, beyond fantastic, and the Bhutan sights, particularly the Tiger's Nest, were the most amazing I have seen anywhere in the world. The Buddhist culture and general happiness and serenity in everyone is evident everywhere, it was a great change to India, and the lack of horns and traffic and noise was welcomed. The valleys and mountains are vast and pristine. In my opinion it is the greatest place on Earth, and would recommend Kelzang's team and his tour company to anyone.
    With Regards Jason Ward
