About Us

Welcome to Daily Bhutan, formerly known as New Bhutan Times. Established in June 2017, Daily Bhutan seeks to deliver content, updates and features about the Kingdom to readers beyond Bhutan. We hope to act as the “gateway” to Bhutan, a place where you can understand more about this tiny Himalayan country.

At Daily Bhutan, we curate the top news from Bhutanese publications that appeal to foreign readers. We also cover lifestyle features and human interest stories that we believe the international audience will be interested in.

We are a young website that hopes to tell the remarkable story of a young democracy that possesses a unique identity and place in world history, and also one that is doing its part to thrive in a world that is constantly changing.

Our News section aggregates top stories from Bhutanese publications and in our Features section, we tell of stories to do with extraordinary and ordinary Bhutanese. The Sports section contains updates on the sports and athletic scene in Bhutan, while our Business section provides an insight into the entrepreneurial spirit of the Bhutanese. Our section on Travel is an informative one that hopes to give a better understanding of traveling within the country and the Lifestyle section covers entertainment, food and other features.

We hope you will continue to enjoy reading the content from our website. We value your opinions and do reach out to us at [email protected] if you have any comments or feedback.

Press releases and announcements are welcome at [email protected] too.
