Kingdom of Bhutan

Bhutan, often referred to as the last Shangri-La, only recently opened its doors to the world in the 1960's and seeks to maintain its cultural heritage through closely enforced standards and regulations. Visitors to the country must be registered with officically licensed tour operators and pay a fee of $200 USD every day they stay. Tourists from India and Bangladesh are free from this obligation. However, the Bhutanese are free to travel abroad, without governmental interference. The law does require that citizens wear traditional dress when they are out in public or attending formal events. Men wear the gho, a short robe with a cloth belt called the kera. Women wear a long dress, or kira, with a long sleeved shirt underneath, referred to as toego. Color, texture and embellishment are all indicative of the wearer's status. Acessories, such as shawls, scarves and jewelry, are worn to indicate the family's class in the Bhutan feudal system.
