We would highly advise against using or consuming tap water while in Bhutan and prefer you stick to consuming mineral water, that is readily available in Hotels, shops and at tourist sites, as tap water is not safe to drink. The cuisine in Bhutan has a large collection of vegetable dishes due to the number of vegetarians in the country and the food is delicious. We would, however, advise you to stay away from Salads as unclean water might have been used in washing it & request that they reduce the amount of chilli in the food as Bhutanian Cuisine includes lots of it and you should be good to go.

Bhutan enjoys a unique location on the southern slope of the Eastern Himalaya Mountains & landlocked by two neighbouring countries, the Chinese region of Tibet from the north & the Sikkim states of India.
Our personal recommendation for when to visit this amazing region in Asia, with the internet sharing our same opinion would be between September to November & from March to May. The reason we chose those two dates is that not only is the sky at its clearest, allowing you to fully enjoy the natural beauty around, but also teh marvellous vision of the blooming flowers.
The official currency in Bhutan is the Ngultrum, Indian Rupees are also accepted as payment as long as their lesser than 500 cash.

As for venues to exchange some of your currency for the local currency, they will mainly be your Hotel, at the airport, at local banks & for a better deal on exchange rates than the banks some shopkeepers may be able to perform the exchange for you.
To say that Bhutan is safe to visit is somewhat of an understatement, as it is definitely safe to Visit Bhutan. A testimony to its reputation as a safe vacation destination are the testaments of its many visitors saying that even scams were unheard of in the country during their time there. The same goes for solo female travellers.
