A magical getaway set amidst stunning mountain landscapes, ancient monasteries and lush forests, Bhutan is also a great place to buy some unique souvenirs to take home with you. Before setting off on a shopping excursion, look to find accommodation that will let you enjoy the very best the country has to offer such as an award winning hotel belonging to COMO Hotels and Resorts. This luxury hotel group has a range of properties around the world and is known for its excellent service too.

When you are planning to get in some souvenir shopping in Bhutan you have much to choose from. As you explore the local markets and shops you will come across unique handicraft collections ranging from masks to jewellery, carpets to wooden products and textiles to items made from bamboo. Also worth purchasing is the hand-woven clothing items, while one can even consider getting silk paintings which normally showcase scenes related to Buddhism. One of the best places to buy souvenirs is at the market in Thimphu held from Friday to Sunday.
