BANGKOK (BKK) - A must visit travel destination

Chiang Mai | Krabi | Pattaya | Phang Nga | Phuket

Bangkok is one of Asia's most cosmopolitan cities and a very popular travel destination. Bangkok is also known as Krung Thep which means the City of Angels. Krung Thep (Bangkok) is the capital of Thailand and the largest city in Thailand. It is also one of the leading cities of Southeast Asia. Bangkok (Bkk) is located in the central part of Thailand, on the east bank of Chao Phraya River near the Gulf of Thailand (also known as the Gulf of Siam).

Bangkok is Thailand's administrative, economic, and cultural center, and a major commercial and transportation center of Southeast Asia. The Bangkok metropolitan area extends for more than 32 kilometers (20 miles) in all directions. It includes Bangkok proper, the industrial city of Thon Buri on the west bank of the Chao Phraya river, and Klongtoi Wharf downstream, which, along with Bangkok’s artificial harbor, handles the bulk of Thailand’s foreign trade. The city is the hub of a continental Southeast Asian railroad network and has modern highways. Congestion on its roads led to the opening of an elevated light-rail system in 1999 and subway system in 2004. Its nearby international airport is one of the busiest in Asia. Despite these transportation facilities, Bangkok depends mainly on its numerous canals to carry the commercial produce of the surrounding area.
