Despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Bhutan’s tourism industry has seen an increase in visitors in recent months. According to the Bhutan Tourism Monitor, the country welcomed over 7,000 tourists in the first quarter of 2023, a 25% increase compared to the same period in 2022. The majority of visitors came from neighboring countries such as India and Bangladesh, with a smaller number coming from Europe and North America. The increase in tourism is seen as a positive sign for Bhutan’s economy, which has been heavily impacted by the pandemic.
