Bangkok Thailand

Bangkok has been the capital of the Kingdom of Thailand since 1782. It has a special administrative status and is governed by a governor. The capital has 8,249 million inhabitants (census 2010) and is by far the largest city in the country. A total of 14.566 million people live in the Bangkok Metropolitan Region (BMR), the largest metropolitan region in Thailand (census 2010).

Golden palaces, colorful markets and majestic porcelain-faced church towers ... sounds like a magical wonderland! No - it's Bangkok. The capital of Thailand is divided into 50 unique districts. Discover the unique shopping experience in Pratunam or Siam Square and then relax in the Dusit Gardens in European style. In Thonburi you can admire the wonderful Wat Arun Temple and in Phra Nakhon you can explore the Wat Pho Temple of the reclining Buddha. Taste the sticky rice with mango on one of the stalls before you enjoy the gilded splendor of the Grand Palace.

The city is the political, economic and cultural center of Thailand with universities, colleges, palaces and over 400 Wats (Buddhist temples and monasteries) as well as the most important traffic point of the country. The National Museum in Bangkok is the largest of its kind in Southeast Asia. Bangkok is also home to the Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (UNESCAP). With more than 17 million foreign tourists, Bangkok was the most visited city in the world in 2013 before being replaced by London again in 2014 and since then ranked second.

In Bangkok there are restaurants for practically every taste. All the major European, Middle Eastern and Far Eastern flavors are represented in many gourmet restaurants. The highest restaurant density is probably the areas in which the tourists mainly live, especially the Thanon Sukhumvit with its numerous side streets. Guides claim that in these areas one is never more than 50 meters from the nearest restaurant.
