Yeah guided tourism does kind of seperate from people but I guess its good for the country in the long run. However there is enough opportunity for the visitors to intermingle in the streets and markets, fulfil academic or religious inquisitiveness.
The National Council (upper house) went very well and the genaral elections (lower house)is on the 24th of March, campaigning is in full swing.
Yeah I heard that our present king whose coronation will be this year(date not announced but soon after the new government is formed) is popular in Thailand and we are more than happy and grateful about it. Lots of activities taking place between us in a number of fields too. Chow

I would really love to go to Bhutan.
Nice the government is trying to give tourists a good experience.
Does it separate the tourists from the people a bit or??? I imagine many Bhutanese are very friendly.
How did the elections go? Has that happened yet?
Do you know that your King is very very popular here in Thailand? People like him very much here.
