Heard from the gals that nightlife in Thimphu is very happening. Wanted to go explore right after we came back from trekking. Can't believe it! We could actually still bothered go chiong after 3 days trek. To our little disappointment, we ended up in a "tame" restaurant cum bar Tenzes. Asked the waitress if there's any disco in town. Her eye lit up and said on Fri (tmr). She suggested we can go together tmr! A pity we had to leave Thimphu for Paro tmr :(
On our last day at Paro, Sonam brought us to a local club. It was like a community nightclub where customers get to pick a song and the dancers will go up to the stage to perform. The songs and dance were hilarious.
After that, we went to a karaoke joint, with common singing area. The people there sang mostly English songs from the 70s and 80s. If they feel that you don't sing that well, someone might just press a button and there goes your song!
Last destination for the night was an underground club! Cool! Mostly youngsters, dressed to the nines and the music ranges from current English pop to Bollywood songs! And they are pretty great dancers too! Quite an experience!
Seen a totally different Bhutan here :)
