Today, driving in Bhutan comes attached with an unexpected pleasure: some very quirky, funny, blunt and occasionally profound roadside signs.

Fair warnings. Some remind you of something you should already know: ‘Mountains are pleasure only if you drive with leisure’. Others, leaves little to the imagination: ‘Be gentle on my curves.’ That’s some sign, huh?!

On any travel tours in this beautiful country, you’ll be chuckling upon reading the road signs along the way. No kidding!
