New members of the Bhutan forum, introduce yourself here

Hi all,

Newbie on the Bhutan forum? Don’t know how to start?

This thread is for you ;)

We invite you to introduce yourself on this topic, to share with us your expat story if you are already living in the country, or to tell us more on your expat projects in Bhutan if you are planning to move there.

It will enable us to help you better but above all to wish you a warm welcome.

Welcome on board!

Hi!  I am tshering zangmo from phuentsholing.i work in school as supported staff.about our bhutan its a small country with beautiful natures and innocent bhutanese people.our culture is a very unique.

I have lived most of my life in California, northern & southern.  Also, I have lived in Maui & New York City for shorter periods of time.  I have many skills as a teacher and small business owner.
I am ready to retire.  I most enjoy living simply.  I am happy and want to live with other happy people.  I enjoy nature, gardening, preparing and eating healthy fresh & whole foods.  I hike, exercise and meditate.  Music, dance & drama evoke spirit and I love sharing these experiences with community.
I have just begun researching how it may be possible to live in Bhutan. Nature is my inspiration and creating from a loving heart is my greatest work.
I am discusing Bhutan life with a zany Buddist monk friend of mine living in Oakland, CA, that has visited Bhutan serveral times.  I would also very much like to hear from expats about what it is like to live in the more subtropical rural parts of Bhutan, that are not too far from a 'city center'.  Does a place exist and if yes, where? Shall I find out all I need to know in a visit?
Blessings for your considerations to share <3

thank you for sharing.

Yes mam, I've visited Bhutan Four times in Three years, and I found Bhutan is unique. So much peace I feel in Bhutan  no where I feel. If you allow me I would like to be a Bhutanese. I am earning lot but when I come Bhutan my sole want to stay here forever. I am not happy in India. Once upon a time I thought, money can buy everything, but I have money now thus I realize I was wrong and ignorant. I need peace. I cant describe my feelings, sorry.

Hi, I Subrata Chakraborty from Calcutta India.. But to be honest, here is no peace in India. So I want to expat to either in Bhutan or in Canada.

Dear friends

It feels nice to be part of the Bhutan Forum. I am by citizenship an Indian. I work and live abroad. I have heard a lot about Bhutan and how the Government measures the strength of the nation through Happiness Index rather than GDP. I get gravitated to Bhutan and of late have been contemplating moving to Bhutan as a permanent resident.

I would like to know from the Bhutan Forum about expat life, visa regulations, career opportunities and investment opportunities for expats. Do expats get permanent residence or at least residence for a few years? I look forward to either being employed or establishing myself as a life coach and business mentor, apart from establishing myself as management consultant and leadership advisor making use of my long years of experience in financial services.

I hope Bhutan is expat friendly and investor friendly and it is not difficult to settle down there.

I thank in advance for valuable views and information from the fellow members of the forum, particularly those who have been living in Bhutan for long.

Best regards

Gopalan Parthasarathy

My family and I are planning a move to Thimphu with my husband's job.    We have two teenage daughters who will need to be enrolled in school.   Any thoughts on that too?

Any suggestions on how to find housing before we get there?

Hello everyone,

I am Jannatul Ferdous from Dhaka, Bangladesh. I don't have any special fascination for money. I just want to live a happy and peaceful life and that's why I have chosen Bhutan. I need information about migrating to Bhutan with my family and live in there permanently. Hope I will find the necessary information here and also make good friends in Bhutanese and expats in Bhutan community. Thank you!

  I am a recent graduate from Pepperdine University in Malibu, California.  I'm looking for a teaching job in Bhutan, teaching either English or Mathematics.  Thanks!

Hello fellow expats:

I am an Indian national living and working in US.
I am thinking of moving to a place where I can work and live in a commune.

Bhutan first came to me as an idea from a hindi movie but as I dwelled in deep, I may have found the place which I was looking for and I feel excited to possibly take this step.


Name's Jesse.  Like many of you I have read about the Bhutanese Gross National Happiness and their acceptance of death and it strikes me as a culture that I could/would want to grow into. 

I have a great job as a Projects Mgr for a Healthcare company here in the US, but I'd be willing to quit this old rat-race, money grab for a sense of community and true peace and contentment.

I look forward to learning more about Bhutan from the members here.  I am very excited by this whole prospect!

Please feel free to message me!

Hello Everyone,

My name is Angela from Taiwan. I'm fascinated by the culture and the nature of Bhutan. I'm looking for the oppotunity to work and live in this beautiful country. I'd also like to make friends with the members who are from Bhutan or who are living in Bhutan to learn more about my dream place to live.


Hellooo everyone

I'm Chris and I am from India. I've moved to Thimphu in Feb this year to pursue my Masters in Business Management. God willing, I'll be here until June '17. The country is certainly beautiful. I feel it's The Royal family which rules the country that makes Bhutan so beautiful and wonderful.

I am happy about my move to Bhutan and hope to find a job to stay even after the course.
