Expensive or value for money?
You decide

Any extras?
supplement for 5 star accommodation

Now, consider the cost of one night -room only- in London
What do you think?

Basics aside, what else do you get for your money?
An amazing insight into a unique culture:
Where else is Gross National Happiness enshrined in the Constitution?
Where else would a king stop his car to chat to a farmer?
Or join in an archery contest on his coronation?

superb arts and crafts
and to top it all
