Today, Bhutan has a worldwide reputation as a philatelic paradise. Vibrant colors and vivid images characterize Bhutan stamps. Bhutan has recently added a new set of stamps commemorating Walt Disney characters and is a popular collection. Other commemorative stamps issued include the 1994 World Cup commemorative stamps and the German unification commemorative stamps.
At the Central Post Office in Thimphu, you can buy stamps from collectors and first releases. These stamps are worth looking at, even if you don’t collect stamps. The Thimphu Central Post Office also sells framed philatelic albums that will surprise you.
