We stayed at two Amankora resorts in Bhutan - Thimphu and Paro. Unlike many other reviewers, I did quite enjoy the architecture and design of the rooms and public spaces of both resorts but felt like the pricetag was not worth the 3 nights spent...More

Avoid the monsoon period, June to September, with really heavy rainfall, that can exceed 5 meters per year. The best period to visit the country is late September to late November. Clear skies, very little rain. This is also the time for several of the dance festivals, e.g. in Thimpu and the time for black-necked cranes to arrive from Tibet. The second best time to visit Bhutan is spring, March to May. More clouds and more rain than in the autumn, but this is time for the blossoming of e.g. jakaranda, magnolias and so forth.
