Thimphu in detail

Travel With Children

Thimphu isn't particularly child-friendly but children will enjoy the Motithang Takin Preserve and the hands-on exhibits at Simply Bhutan and the Folk Heritage Museum, as well as trips to the Changangkha Lhakhang, where Bhutanese families bring their children for blessings. Of the walks around town, the trail from the BBS Tower to Wangditse Goemba is easy for little legs, and kids will enjoy meeting the novices if you continue to Dechen Phodrang.

For family meals, hotel buffets are a safe option, and kids will love the burgers and shakes at Cloud 9 and Zone.
