Thailand - Bangkok

Bangkok Street Scene"Krungthep" as the Thais know it, is the capital of Thailand, "Krungthep" means the City of Angels (Just like Los Angeles in the USA!) A giant metropolis with a population heading towards 9 million souls. Where rich and poor appear to live in harmony side by side.

Your first couple of hours in Bangkok are crucial to your enjoyment, so finding your feet as soon as you arrive is essential if not part of an organised package tour.

The combined effect of the dirt, heat, humidity, noise, pollution, traffic, and just the look of Bangkok makes some visitors have an urge to leave the city almost as soon as they have arrived! Though this may be understandable to a degree, we think Bangkok has a lot to offer those who overcome this urge.

The city dates from the late 1700s when it was decreed as the capital of Siam by King Rama I.

Bangkok International Airport The city has the modern Bangkok International Airport, On September 28, 2006, Suvarnabhumi Airport (IATA: BKK), became Bangkok's official international airport, replacing Don Mueang. Pronounced Suwan-naphum or loosely Su-wan-na-poom, the airport is located about 18km from the city center in Samut Prakan Province, acting as a hub for the northern south east Asia region. You can see the variety of nationalities either arriving or staging through en-route to neighbouring countries or even the other continents. With domestic journeys and transfers. This is one hectic place to be!
