Bangkok: The City of Angels
Bangkok (Krung Thep Maha Nakhon), the capital city of Thailand has fast become the world’s #1 vacation destination, and rightly so. This busy city challenges the adventurous spirit of even the most seasoned traveller, offering crowded markets, magical temples, busy bars and a sea of smiles.
Occupying 1,568.7 square kilometres, and a population of over 8 million people (12.6% of the kingdoms population), it is the most populous city in the whole of Thailand. Bangkok dwarfs Thailand’s other urban centres in terms of importance hosting a metropolitan region of over 14 million.
There is so much on offer it is impossible to see it all in one week, never mind a day. From floating markets and busy streets to hidden temples, Bangkok really does have something to offer everybody.
