The impression when first arrived at the international airport struck great resemblance to the Paro airport and Bangalore airport that I knew about 10 years ago, when you would meet whoever receiving you only after you stepped out of the airport. On the other hand, shops lined up along the way from immigration point to the baggage collection point. An interesting observation, most of the shops sell electronics like TV sets.
The roads were filled with tuk-tuks, very similar to Thailand!
Along the way, by stretches of road, there are shabby huts that service as stalls to sell fruits, toys, etc each stretch has its own theme. Amongst the fruit stalls, bananas and king coconuts are most common!
