Here is a list of things (activities, point of interest, etc) that often appear as part of a trip to Bhutan.
When planning a trip to Bhutan, you could ask the tour operator to give you an itinerary of so many days and they will fill it with things that the tour operator assumes that you will enjoy. You can also just hand over a list of things that you are interested in and let the tour operator put it together for you. Just remember some places can be quite far and may require a longer trip to Bhutan in order to see the items.
I keep the original list in Google Sheets and you can find the live sheet here. Over time, this will be updated as I start to assemble the review pages and galleries for the item. If there is no link to a review, then you could use Trip Advisor or Google to research the item to see if it is something that you would be interested in including as part of your trip to Bhutan.
