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.

Location, location, location!

Kuensel's My country my town corner is one of my favorite parts of the newspaper. Recently, a competition was announced among contributors of photos to this corner, where the winner are those with the most votes. 

Congratulations to the three winners who were recently declared! (they got the most votes on the Kuensel website). I noticed that all three winners are far away from Thimphu (Mongar, Trashigang and Phuntsholing), yet according to the announcement in Kunesel, the prizes are to be collected from their Thimphu office... Hopefully the prizes are worthwhile coming all the way to Thimphu! (and back)


  1. Lol...hope so Mr.Shmueli.Lets keep our finger crossed.Otherwise no point coming all the way from Trashigang.haha Good observation anyway

  2. @mimi, just a small correction: This post was written by Mrs. Shmueli
