MPD - safe, affordable & reliable
Stretching for 14,824 square miles, this landlocked South Asian country has a varied landscape that includes sub-alpine Himalayan heights and subtropical plains. The kingdom is known for magic and mystery, once voted one of the happiest places to live in the world, but it is a remote and poor country between China and India. A place that guards its ancient traditions, it has a Buddhist culture and was isolated from the rest of the world until the 1970s and still restricts tourism. Agriculture and forestry employ around two thirds of the population for exporting cardamom, timber, handicrafts, fruit and spices along with electricity, gypsum and cement, which has increased demand for a cheap courier to Bhutan. Its economy is essentially linked with India’s and the country also gives financial aid.
With around 800,000 people living in the country, you will find more than 100,000 living in the district of the capital, Thimphu. Other notable cities that are commonly used for delivery services in Bhutan include Punakha, Tsirang, Phuntsholing, Pemagatshel, Sarpang and Wangdue Phodrang. It was decided in 2010 that the country would begin using a postcode, and these consist of 5-digits. If you were sending to the capital of Thimpu, you would use 11001 with the first digit for the region, second for the district, third for the sub district and final two for the delivery area. Like with most poor countries, the transport infrastructure is poor and under development. That said, there are more than 5,000 miles of roads to connect the town and cities throughout Bhutan and Paro Airport takes frequent international flights.
