Bhutan Paro International Airport

I don’t travel too much in order to compare international airports. However, amongst these which I came to like Changi of Singapore, Suvarnabhumi of Thailand, Ben Gurion of Israel, Tan Son Nhat & Noi Bai of Vietnam, Paro International Airport of Bhutan is the cutest one.

When I said cute, I really mean cute. It’s a small airport in a nice valley. I think it’s smaller than our Tan Son Nhat domestic port. The immigration process is also quick because there are not too many travelers.

Before landing, the plane hovers to left and right several times. I can see the tiny airport inside green trees and huge mountains from above.

Due to this special geographical location, very few pilots can take off & land. Paro International Airport is one of the most difficult & treacherous airports in the world with only a 2-km runway. Both two carriers state-owned Drukair and private Bhutan Airlines has rarely foreign pilots. Planes are also small ones. Big ones don’t have enough space to land on.

Its wooden exterior and interior design are also beautiful.
