One of the purposes of BSTS is to encourage and promote tourism research in Bhutan. Many students, entrepreneurs or for that matter any person/agency interested in tourism development are in search of relevant literature. While International literature is quite easily accessible it is the local literature that becomes difficult to access.

As such in the interest of encouraging and promoting tourism research and education we will upload local reports that we have access to for the benefit of our members. It is important to understand the existing situation and challenges so that one gets a realistic insight to tourism issues and according can contribute towards its sound development.

As these are reports of studies conducted by individual researchers, agencies, etc.. please be mindful to use the information responsibly.

Any agencies or individuals with relevant articles or reports are welcome to contribute to this page.
