Timing your holiday right to coincide with local festivals is a fantastic way to immerse yourself in the vibrant cultural buzz of your destination. During your trip you might be encouraged to get involved in traditional and religious festivities, which can create a sense of unity with locals.

Whether it's the rhythmic beats of drums or the display of traditional costumes, attending a festival during your holiday adds an unforgettable dimension to your travel experience, making it a memory to cherish forever. Take, for example, Bhutan's colourful festivals, known as 'tshechu,' which offer an incredible opportunity to witness age-old traditions, masked dances, and spiritual celebrations. These festivals provide a unique window into the heart and soul of a culture, allowing travellers to connect with local communities and partake in the festivities.
