ThimphuTech was the first technology blog in Bhutan. We started writing it in 2009, just as broadband and mobile internet started to take off. (Although internet in Bhutan was launched in 1999, it was either super-slow or super-expensive, and was only used by a selected few).

In the blog, we wrote about technology and food, but also about plenty of other stuff. The blog became popular and influential in Bhutan. A companion bi-weekly column -- Ask Boaz -- was published for many years in the Kuensel, Bhutan's national newspaper. (The complete Kuensel columns are available as an ebook, Blogging with Dragons).

We stopped updating the blog when we left Bhutan in 2014, but the information within the posts can still prove useful, and thus we decided to keep it online.

We thank all our readers.
Tashi Delek,
Boaz & Galit.

Bok choy

As a vegetarian, it is always a joy for me to find new types of vegetables in Thimphu. Bok choy heads are available now at some stalls at the "Sunday" market and also at the downtown market (off Norzin lam). I stir-fried the stalks along with garlic, ginger, purple onion (as if there's a choice of onion varieties!) and the small green chillies. It also goes well with soy sauce and lime juice.


  1. You know, your blog is extremely helpful for hapless Thimphu noobs like me. Thanks.

  2. Thanks, Andrea - glad you found the blog useful!
