Many tourists across the country visit Bhutan because of its unique culture and identity. They prefer visiting Bhutan and learn how to dress into the national dress that is Gho and Kira. They admire our unique mask dance and they love to learn Dzongkha language.

Westernization comes from modernization.
Introduction Bhutan is one of the smallest developing countries located on the Himalayan Mountain. The form of government in Bhutan is a democratic constitutional monarchy. It has not been long since the country instituted democracy in 2008. Bhutan has pleaded to remain a carbon neutral country for all times to come but the unprecedented urbanization in the country is a major threat to the ambitious pledge that it has made to the world. Urbanization is the process of movement of people from rural areas to urban areas resulting in the increase population in the urban areas.
Korean Buddhism clarified a unique concept of preparing food in five precepts and forbidding to kill animals is the first one. Thats why, temples always use vegetables and even vegetable oil instead of animal products. The Buddhist rites of Korea can be seperated into two sets: one of them is for the deceased and the other is for the living. During the first class of ceremony Bul-gong takes place in Buddhist offering (which is originated during the period of Sakyamuni Buddha’s life.

In 1616 Zhabdrung arrived in Bhutan, so he realized that Bhutan needs to separate the identity to differentiate from the neighboring countries particularly with Tibet.

The Himalayan kingdom has always continued to be a culturally rich and happy nation instead of harbouring any geostrategic or political ambition. In my opinion, China is silently envisioning to become the ‘indisputed’ power in Asia so it can reasonably claim hegemony over most of its Asian counterparts. With respect to Bhutan, Doklam provides a wider boundary for China in the border. Constructing and building roads in Doklam is an easy way to connect with the Chumbi valley, near the Doklam plateau. Chumbi valley and Doklam are strategically important since China’s easy access to these will lead to heavy military deployment near the border which is a matter of great concern for India.
Thailand is a country full of rich history and sacred traditions that have been passed down through generations. Today, it remains one of the only South Asian country’s to have been left uncolonized by Europeans (Encyclopedia Britannica, "Thailand," 2018, para. 3).

Bhutan is the small country located in the eastern Himalayan region between two gigantic countries, China in the North and India in the South. Bhutan is comprised of many settlements each bearing its own set of traditions and culture. These rich traditions and cultures were practiced for hundreds of years, and have been passed through the generations to generations. However, with the origin of modernization and globalization, our country is moving towards a modern lifestyle which has made the lives of Bhutanese people more comfortable and easier to do day to day activities. As this situation continues to grow; country is losing our rich traditions and culture especially in the areas of television, dress, games and economy.
Introduction Before 1961, Bhutanwith its small population was largely sufficient in their needs and maintained their tradition and culture well. The living standard of an average Bhutanese was relatively low and they had their own life style unique from the rest of the world. The practice of traditional culture and value started detriotriating when Bhutan opened up to the outside world, especially its foreign relation with two immediate neighbours India and Nepal, (Collins, 2012). The general Bhutanese power in thinking, dressing, communicating and behaving is copied from Indian and foreign TV channels (BIMIS, 2013). Bhutanese youth’s adaptations to new styles are very much keen and ultimately lack to preserve the tradition and custom value
