As told to Carrie Goldberg
The New York-based designer has her eyes set on one of her bucket list destinations, Bhutan.
When asked where she'd like to travel, designer Tory Burch dreams of Bhutan. A special place best known for its spirituality, intrepid outdoor activities, and the Tiger's Nest, a sacred Buddhist site located in the cliffs of the upper Paro valley.
According to luxury trip planner and BAZAAR contributor Black Tomato, Bhutan opened its doors to tourists in 1974 and is best enjoyed between March to May and September to December, due to its summer rainy season. As for COVID restrictions, the country now requires travellers to have a business or student visa for entry and observe a two-week quarantine upon arrival; come high season in September, Bhutan plans to have all its residents fully vaccinated due to their efforts to quell the spread of the virus nationwide. Note: The country currently requires all those who are visiting for leisure to arrange their trips with registered tour operators. Ahead, Burch shares her dream itinerary including where she'll stay in Bhutan and all the activities she has planned.

Where I’ll Stay

Friends of ours are opening a bed and breakfast in Bhutan where there will be daily treks and hikes. There is also Gangtey Lodge and several Aman locations where you can trek during the day and stay at different lodges every night. The entire day is spent hiking and walking countryside roads or up through mountain paths.
