Bangkok Travel and Tourism

Bangkok is the capital, largest urban area and primary city of Thailand. Known in Thai as Krung Thep Mahanakhon , (Krung Thep) for short, it was a small trading post at the mouth of the Chao Phraya River during the Ayutthaya Kingdom. It came to the forefront of Siam when it was given the status as the capital city in 1768 after the burning of Ayutthaya. However, the current Rattanakosin Kingdom did not begin until 1782 when the capital was moved across the river by Rama I after the death of King Taksin. The Rattanakosin capital is now more formally called "Phra Nakhon" , pertaining to the ancient boundaries in the metropolis' core and the name Bangkok now incorporates the urban build-up since the 18th century which has its own public administration and governor. In the span of over two hundred years, Bangkok has grown to become the political, social and economic center of not only Thailand but for Indochina and South East Asia. Its influence in the arts, politics, fashion, education and entertainment as well as being a business, financial and cultural center of Asia has given Bangkok the status of a global city. Bangkok has a population of approximately 6,355,144 residents while the greater Bangkok area has a population of 11,971,000 . This has in turn shifted the country from being a rather homogeneous Thai population to an increasingly vibrant mix of Western, Indian and Chinese people, giving the city a cosmopolitan status. The capital is part of the heavily urbanized triangle of central and eastern Thailand which stretches from Nakhon Ratchasima along Bangkok to the industrialized eastern seaboard, It is the most built-up area in South East Asia. The Bangkok Province borders six other provinces: Nonthaburi, Pathum Thani, Samut Prakan, Samut Sakhon and Nakhon Pathom, and all five provinces are joined in the conurbation of the Bangkok Metropolitan Area.

Bangkok is located in Thailand and its geographical coordinates are latitude : 13.75° N and longitude : 100.5167° E.

River Side - Chao Phraya River - Bangkok
River Side - Chao Phraya River A visit to Bangkok would not be complete without exploring the riverside for a taste of life in the Thai capital long before mobile phones, cable TV and microwave popcorn became all the buzz. Day or night, the riverside provides plentiful picture-perfect photo opportunities with its many historical landmarks and hidden charms. The Chao Phraya is also the star attraction in the city during important events like Songkran (the Thai New Year, celebrated in April), the annual Loy Krathong Festival in November, and the very rare Royal Barge Procession - the most recent one held in June 2006 to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee of Thailand's King Bhumibol Adulyadej. On New Year's Eve, riverside hotels take turns to outdo each...

Dusit Zoo - Wild Dusit Show - Bangkok
Dusit Zoo - Wild Dusit Show During my visit to Dusit Zoo in Bangkok, Thailand. We enjoyed the Wild Dusit Show. The Wild Dusit Show gives audiences a rare opportunity to witness animal behavior in their habitat. Each 30-minute presentation demonstrates how birds fly, feed, and even walk, how monkeys swing along branches, how animals signal each other... how intelligent they are. The idea is to show people so they can appreciate how animals live and behave in their environment, as well witness and experience the animals in person.
