Here the mountains are beautiful, the air is good, the streets are very clean, and the people are simple. Thimphu has two short streets. All the buildings are built in the traditional Bhutanese architectural style. The walls are made of white and red, and the wooden structures are painted.

Bhutan is surrounded by mountains, and the Bhutanese people have built a town in a relatively flat river valley, Thimphu is such a town, the construction and 13th century, the area is not very large, with only about 50,000 residents, not as big as a small county in our country. There is no modern atmosphere here, and the religious color is very strong. In sharp contrast to the isolation of the country, there is persistence and adherence to tradition and purity.
