BANGKOK
Bangkok (Krung Thep in thai), the city of angels, is the capital of Thailand, the largest urban area and primary city of Thailand with an estimated population of over 11 million. Administratively the city is split up into 50 khet (districts) and has a registered 1,000 skyscrapers and ranks 17th as the world's tallest city. Bangkok has grown to become the political, social and economic center of Thailand. The most important business districts of Bangkok include Silom, Bangrak, Pinklao, Sathon, Phra Ram 2, Phetchaburi, Phra Nakhon, Pathumwan, Chatuchak, and Phra Ram 3.
An elaborate network of canals known as khlongs gave Bangkok the nickname "Venice of the East".

Bangkok is served by two international airports, Suvarnabhumi International Airport and Don Muang, four rapid transit lines operated by the BTS, MRT, so it's very easy to visit Bangkok. You can easily use the express boat too, which has thirty stops along the both banks of the Chao Praya River extending as far as the northern suburb of Nonthaburi.
The capital of Thailand, Bangkok is the largest city in Thailand and is the cultural, economic, educational, and political center of the nation.
The history of Bangkok as a modern city dates back to 1782 when it was declared capital of Thailand by King Rama I of the Chakri Dynasty. Since then, Bangkok has grown steadily to become one of the world's prominent cities, consisting of 50 districts.
Bangkok offers a feast of attractions, ranging from ancient temples and magnificent palaces to modern as well as classy malls. Of the attractions of the city, perhaps the most popular is its more than 400 dazzling Buddhist wats or temples of incredible beauty and fascination. Here is some of them :
- Wat Benchamabophit, which is much favored for its main chapel erected in white Carara Italian marble
- Wat Phra Chetuphon, with a huge Reclining Buddha of 46 m long and 15 m high
- Wat Traimit, is a 5.5 tonne solid gold Buddha image, erected more than 700 years ago during the Sukhothai period.
The city also abounds in splendid palaces. Among which, most noteworthy as well as spectacular is Grand Palace, an architectural splendor which served as the royal residence. In the Grand Palace you will visit Wat Phra Kaew, (the Temple of the Emerald Buddha), whose highlight is an Emerald Buddha dating back to the 14th century.
But there are also many palaces unknown from tourist guide like Tha Phra Palace, Vimanmek Mansion, King Taksin's Palace, Bahn Moh Palace, The Front Palace, and Sra Pathum Palace.
During your holidays in Thailand if you stay several days in Bangkok you can enjoy Bangkok's attractions like Snake Farm, also known as the Queen Saovabha Memorial Institute, which is one of the leading producers of anti-venom Serum in Asia, the Crocodile Farm (the largest of its kind in the world) and Rose Garden, a well-manicured area where cultural shows are conducted, and don't miss the Ancient City, exhibiting gigantic-sized replicas of renowned monuments and temples found across the nation.
Thailand and particulary Bangkok offers many options to enjoy a variety of leisurely activities. The city comes with some of the top-rated golf courses in the world (Royal Thai Air Force, Royal Bangkok Sports Club, and Royal Thai Army Sports Center). If you love to be pampered, then head to any of the city's superb spa facilities, offering rejuvenating massages and relaxing natural treatments. For those looking for something different, one of the best options would be to spectacle Thai boxing, which is conducted on the two main stadiums of Bangkok (Ratchadamnoen Stadium and Lumpini Stadium).
Bangok is also a venue for a variety of interesting festivals, including Songkran Festival, Loy Krathong (the Festival of Lights) and the International Festival of Dance and Music.
