MyBhutan is a social enterprise that nurtures emerging markets while simultaneously supporting traditional industries -- with the aim of reducing social inequality and preserving Bhutan’s ancient culture and pristine landscape.
Our first enterprise, the travel platform, applies smart technology to make booking a trip to Bhutan easy, personalized, and cost-effective while also creating more opportunities for Bhutanese to participate in the tourism market.
Proceeds from each trip support Tarayana Foundation, a Bhutanese NGO that aids vulnerable communities in the Kingdom of the Thunder Dragon.
About Our Website
MyBhutan.com is the first and only platform that lists hundreds of tour operators, guides, and accommodations in Bhutan — in one central location, with all the information you need to make your choices, and all available to you at the lowest rate allowed by the government. MyBhutan itself does not operate tours or guide tourists; we assist with trip planning and connect you to the services from across the industry that will be perfect for you.
Here's why it's so important to use an industry-wide platform when booking your trip to Bhutan:
1. Tour operators. The Tourism Council of Bhutan has registered over 500 tour operators. As you probably know, tourists must book with one of them in order to visit Bhutan. But how to choose? How do you know who's reputable, reliable, and right for you? MyBhutan cuts right through the confusion. Our proprietary algorithm matches you with the tour operator that has the most experience in the very things you tell us are important to you.
2. Guides. The right guide can make the difference between a satisfactory trip and a great one. The Tourism Council of Bhutan has certified over two thousand guides, and their experience varies tremendously. As do their personalities, naturally. How do you know who you'll mesh with? Which of them is knowledgeable and passionate about the same things you are? MyBhutan's algorithm narrows it down to a handful of matches, and from there you just watch their video profiles to pick the one you resonate with most.
3. Accommodations. Where you lay your head at night when traveling also matters. It's common for tour operators to choose lodging for their customers based on the operators' existing connections. MyBhutan thinks you should do the choosing, based on criteria important to you. Read our hotel and home stay profiles, add them to your MyBhutan Wish List, and your tour operator will make sure you stay in only the hotels or home stays you have selected.
Your trip to Bhutan should be customized and as unique as you are. There's no reason to settle for less when MyBhutan is here to make it happen — and for less than you would pay elsewhere. It's a no-brainer.
