The path of tourism development that Bhutan has taken has been appreciated the world over and written about. The fact that Bhutan receives highly educated and well traveled visitors who are very sensitive to the local culture and environment is in itself a positive impact. The Bhutanese value their culture and tradition more knowing that people from outside pay so much to have the opportunity of just visiting the country to see all that Bhutan has to offer that is so different from the rest of the world.
