Bangkok, Thailand

Bangkok, Thailand. The city of Bangkok is the capital, largest urban area and primary city of Thailand. Known in Thai as Krung Thep Maha Nakhon or Krung Thep for short, it was a small trading post at the mouth of the Chao Phraya River during the Ayutthaya Kingdom and came to the forefront of Thailand when it was given the status as the capital city in 1768 after the burning of Ayutthaya, the former kingdom seat and capital of the Ayuthaya province. It was also ranked by "Travel and Leisure," as the best city in the world for the year 2008.
Pagodas and gold colour everywhere
Efficient LRT system, but bit expensive
Service most of Bangkok area
The finishing on the temples are awesome
Well maintained for the tourists
Very safe, very busy and very cosmopolitan city
Pagodas and temples - mostly in gold colour
Other buildings are just as awesome
A tourist haven
Even for the local Thai tourists
Guards on LRT, makes it look very safe
Clean, efficient and on-time trains
Most of the city is carved and paved
Modern, enchanting and spicy
