Bangkok – the capital and most visited and biggest city in Thailand.

    • Bangkok is a world metropolis with about 10 million inhabitants. Bangkok itself has an area of 1568 km², of which about 700 km² are built-up urban areas. The first mention of Bangkok can be found in the 15th century, when it served as a small trading station, during the Ajutthaya kingdom. However, unstoppable growth meant that it became the site of two major cities: Thonburi in 1768 and Rattanakosin in 1782. Bangkok was the heart of the Siam modernization at the end of the 19th century when it came under pressure from the West. Bangkok is located in the delta of the Chao Phraya River, which divides the Thai capital into two parts. The city used to be called the Venice of the East, but traces of the past can still be seen today. Suvarnabhumi International Airport or Don Mueang Airport are the most important airports in Bangkok and Hua Lamphong is the most important railway station.
