Etiquette abroad: how to avoid cultural faux pas
Most beautiful monastery
This astonishing 17th-century site clings to the craggy cliffs of Bhutan's Paro valley. Known as Paro Taktsang - the Tiger's Nest - it is a working monastery that still flutters with prayer flags and echoes with the sound of chanting Buddhist monks. We picked it not only for its obvious beauty and unlikely location 700 metres above the valley floor but also for the fact the precarious monastery is so unspoilt by tourism; visitor numbers are strictly limited.
