In commemoration of His Majesty’s 40th Birth Anniversary, and also coinciding with the World Tourism Day under the theme “Tourism and Rural Development”, TCB has launched the digital booklet on the Village Home Stays in Bhutan. The objective of this publication is to disseminate information and promote VHS to the visitors at home and abroad.
VHS plays an important role in providing accommodation services to visitors mainly in rural areas. It is an opportunity for visitors to stay with the host family and get a genuine and firsthand experience of lifestyle in rural areas. For the host family, it is an opportunity to earn additional income through tourism and improve their livelihoods. Apart from accommodation services, VHS also organizes exciting activities such as village tours, hot stone bath, farm work, cultural programs and many more.
As of now, there are 157 VHS across the country.
