Personal Note from Kathleen Fung, Founder:

I grew up within the duality of two heritages: Asian and eastern European, two nearly opposite cultures. My father was born in China and came here to study medicine, bringing his Buddhist beliefs and deeply ingrained Chinese traditions. My mother was both Polish and Chinese but raised in a strict eastern European Catholic household. From infancy, I experienced the yin and yang of a bicultural family that included chopsticks and forks at the table, a crucifix and a Buddhist altar in the dining room, and three languages all thrown into the mix. Being socialized into a triple culture (American, eastern European, and Asian) helped me embrace cultural differences and respect people regardless of their race, religion, or social standing. When I started working in the travel industry in the '70s, I wanted to expose people to different cultures in ways that drew upon my own cross-cultural background. Today Far Fung Places' philosophy of travel continues to embrace understanding and learning through cultural diversity.


In Bhutan, we have had a stellar reputation in the travel industry for over 25 years, earning mention in the Lonely Planet® Bhutan, and Françoise Pommaret, Bhutan Himalayan Mountain Kingdom® guidebooks. We have earned a Trip Advisor® 5 star rating for our unique travel programs.
