One popular place to get a taste of traditional Bhutan is this rustic farmhouse, which offers traditional meals and adds artemisia herbs to its traditional-style wooden hot-stone baths. Farm houses are mostly colorful traditional Bhutanese houses built with mud and stones without any nails. Staying in a Paro farm house is a very different and unique experience. It is an opportunity to get an experience of typical village life in Bhutan. Except for some differentiations done to farm houses’ hygiene and sanitation facilities, the rest remains the same. Earlier the ground floor of the house served as shelter for cattle but now it is used as a store for the family. This was a move to improve a household’s sanitation and hygiene. The upper floor of the farm houses usually has a big kitchen also used as a living room, a shrine prayer room, a store and a bed room. Tourists can take a hot stone bath at the farm house and can eat with the host family.
