I’m sure that many of us can’t wait to get back to traveling when things get better with the COVID-19 pandemic.
Last week I wrote how many countries were placing restrictions on US visitors. As things start to pick up, it still won’t be easy for tourists to visit various destinations.
One country in South Asia has no plans as to when it will reopen to tourists.
According to Lonely Planet, Bhutan has become the latest to outline its plans, stating that for the time being, there is no set date for when the country will open its borders.
The country does hope to reopen to tourists quickly but they say that it’s really based on positive developments globally.
Bhutan has had very few COVID-19 cases and has reported no deaths due to the novel Coronavirus. Their borders are currently closed and the repatriation of Bhutanese citizens require a 21-day quarantine.
Visiting the country isn’t cheap and taking a tour is required. The prices are set by the government and cost around $250 per day per person.
I’m not sure that Bhutan is high on many of your list of places to visit but Kim and I have discussed visiting there many times. Last summer we were just a short flight away but time and costs involved stopped us from seriously trying to visit.
Hopefully when it’s safe, Bhutan will open to tourists again.
