TravelPod Member ReviewsNamgey Hotel Phuntsholing
Hotel Namgyal cost us Rs. 1300 plus tax. Was not a great place to be- with dark dingy rooms, but seemed fairly clean. It was very well located though- 2 min walk from both the permit office as well as the 2 best restaurants in town- Kizom café and Zen restaurant. You could check other options in Phuntsholing- we are not aware of what other options are available. Our taxi driver (based in Phuntsholing) whom we had called earlier had booked the hotel for us.

... instead of coming through the platform entrance/exit. (They were actually gong to to Hasimara town / Hasimara bus stop through short-cut route).

Immediately we were surrounded by many taxi drivers who said there would be no bus to go Jaygaon and they could take us to Jaygaon for 600-800 rs to go Jaygaon. After some time a ...
I left Thimphu on Friday morning to go to Phuntsholing on the border with India. It was a field trip to gather more information on import processes. But it was also a chance for me to see the country - and I am sharing with you.

... was at least one baby close by and I kept taking monkey photos for as long as they walked around. We also had the chance to take some photos of people on buses and trucks and wave and feel generally happy about being part of the human race. This is the one of the best parts of being a tourist - when we are greeted by local people and they are smiling or waving.
The trip notes talked about our drive through the Gangeitic plain and ...
Today we traveled from Thimphu to Phuntsholing which is the closest exit border into India, with no trains in Bhutan it was a case of making the six hour journey by car. To enter Bhutan you have to have use a government approved guide which is a set fee per day but it covers visas, transport, driver, guide, hotels and meals and we can't complain about the hotels, they say you will get a minimum of 3 star and I would say the standards for their gradings are high. The idea of this is ...
... It's the sort of place you can wander along the railway tracks with the locals and people are excited to see tourists rather than view us as piggy banks to be rattled and raided!We had booked a Jeep for ourselves in the afternoon rather than share with up to four other passengers. This was more costly but still only £15 and hopefully would mean we had a bit more control over the trip; i.e. we could get the driver to stop and look at birds or, God forbid, look at the rhinos for more ...
