Bangkok - The City of Angel

Bangkok is the capital and most populous city of Thailand and one of the most vibrant metropolises of Asia. Besides the many records that this city owns, its name is listed in Guinness World Records as the world's longest place name, at 168 letters. The full name transcribed from Thai is: Krungthepmahanakhon, Amonrattanakosin, Mahintharayutthaya, Mahadilokphop, Noppharatratchathaniburirom, Udomratchaniwetmahasathan, Amonphimanawatansathit, Sakkathattiyawitsanukamprasit. The name, composed of Pali and Sanskrit root words, translates as: City of angels, great city of immortals, magnificent city of the nine gems, seat of the king, city of royal palaces, home of gods incarnate, erected by Vishvakarman at Indra's behest. For all Thais is Krung Thep Maha Nakhon or more simply Krung Thep, the City of Angels. The majestic Chao Phraya River divides the city in two areas, the west area that is the quiet Thonburi and the east area that has become the modern, lively, and chaotic Bangkok, which represents the true spirit of the modern capital. Despite the perpetually congested traffic, the intense heat and the chaos that reigns almost everywhere, Bangkok is certainly a fascinating tourist destination and the best place to start your holiday in Thailand to discover this amazing country. Bangkok is a Thailand cultural landmark, the city is known all over the world for its majestic Grand Palace and the several Buddhist temples, including Wat Arun and Wat Pho. As well as its other tourist attractions, which stand in contrast to the great cultural heritage of the city, such as the great shopping malls in Siam area, the vibrant street life, the notorious Patpong and Nana Plaza red-light districts, and the lively nightlife in Royal City Avenue and Khaosan Road. All this and more make Bangkok one of world's top tourist destinations. More
