Bhutan is one of the most unique and off the beaten track places that teaching English can lead you. A truly mystical place nestled in the Himalayan mountains, this Buddhist country wants to make sure it will not be overrun by tourism, and charges $250/day to have the pleasure of experiencing their culture which includes land transport, accommodations, food and guide service.

In a country with a population of only 600,000, traveling to teach in Bhutan is bound to be a life changing opportunity that no one else you know has taken. Thimphu is the capital of Bhutan, and official language is Dzongkha. Fun things to do include viewing Archery competitions, Bhutan’s national sport, and attending authentic Buddhist festivals.
