Afterword

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.

43 Thimphu Restaurants on TripAdvisor

Since we wrote about TripAdvisor a year ago, the number of Thimphu restaurants covered on the world's most popular travel review website has more than doubled. There are now 43 restaurants on the list. Compare that to Siliguri, a busy city of 2 million with hundreds and hundreds of food joints: only 3 restaurants on TripAdvisor!

Anyway, the reviewers are quite active and competition is stiff. If you are a restaurant owner, make sure you let TripAdvisor know. In that way, you can update your establishment's listing  (address, phone number, opening hours), upload photos, write a management response to a bad review and more. Start here.
