Paro Airport is restricted to Visual meteorological conditions, and only daylight hours from sunrise to sunset. Equipments are restricted to A320 families I believe and only 8 pilots in the world are certified to operate in and out from this airport.
Paro is scarier, but nothing compares to the sensation at landing on Kai Tak's 13. The wide bodies on close proximity to downtown Kowloon City, and was one of the busiest single runway operating airport.
(I am biased, I grew up with Kai Tak...
