From here we will go to the Royal Heritage Museum where you can see a depiction of how the Bhutanese live and practice their Buddhist faith. Next on the agenda is a visit to the mini zoo where Bhutan’s national animal, the Takin is housed. The last two places of interest we see today are the Handicrafts Emporium and Textile Museum where Bhutanese textiles and other arts are on display.
