Life expectancy and refugees[edit]

Dearest 210.200.105.229, thanks for your hard work in filling up this article, but please consider creating an account to make it a little easier to communicate! So for the record, let's stick with 63 years as taken from [1]. And yes, there are two sides to every coin, but the view the government doesn't publicize also deserves a mention...

Agreed.

Population[edit]

I've reverted Tom's revert of Stephen Atkin's edit. The UN and CIA estimate that the population is roughly 2,279,723 [2], while Bhutan's census bureau places the population at 672,425 [3]. This is such a wild discrepancy that I've noted both figures. -- Andrew H. (Sapphire) 15:45, 27 December 2006 (EST)

Before thorough censuses were conducted, it was indeed widely thought that the population of Bhutan ranged from around 1.5 million to 2.5 million. However, these figures have been discredited in the light of the 2005 census [4] which Bhutan conducted in order to draw up a list of eligible voters for the 2008 elections as well as for future planning of schools/hospitals etc. In terms of receiving aid, it is actually in Bhutan's interest to inflate the figure, so certainly this lower figure can be considered accurate. Based on this info, I have deleted the 2.5 million figure (I think only the CIA is still quoting this). I hope that is acceptable. WindHorse 22:27, 27 December 2006 (EST)

Tour operators[edit]

I've noticed that http://72.18.135.200/dotbhutan/tour_operator.asp isn't accessible today. Not sure if that's temporary or not. David-journeys.travel 16:33, 7 November 2007 (EST)

I am a tour operator in Bhutan (www.tours.com.bt), and all of the approved government operators are on the Tourism Council of Bhutan government website. I have added a link inside the "Get In" section to the appropriate link: http://www.tourism.gov.bt/bhutan/tour-operators. --Rinchen2t 20:51, 1 January 2011 (EST)

Lists of packed URLs[edit]

From a standpoint of Wikitravel style, this article is a mess of lists of packed URLs. I'm too tired to deal with this right now, but if someone wants to do a useful editing job, that's an obvious one. All the best, Ikan Kekek 05:34, 13 June 2012 (EDT)
