Bangkok is the capital city of Thailand. In Thai the city is called Krung Thep. The city was originally a small trading post during the Ayutthaya period and was built on the west bank of the Chao Phraya River. It became the capital after the Burmese sacked the old capital of Ayutthaya in 1768. The official Thai name for Bangkok is “Krung Thep Mahanakhon Amon Rattanakosin Mahinthara Yuthaya Mahadilok Phop Noppharat Ratchathani Burirom Udomratchaniwet Mahasathan Amon Piman Awatan Sathit Sakkathattiya Witsanukam Prasit” and is recognised by the Guness World Records as being the longest place name on the planet. The English translation is commonly agreed as “The city of angels, the great city, the residence of the Emerald Buddha, the impregnable city (of Ayutthaya) of God Indra, the grand capital of the world endowed with nine precious gems, the happy city, abounding in an enormous Royal Palace that resembles the heavenly abode where reigns the reincarnated god, a city given by Indra and built by Vishnukarn.” Bangkok has gained a reputation as a dynamic and influential city. Bangkok is the political, social and economic center of Thailand. It is one of the leading cities of Southeast Asia with many cultural landmarks (including the historic Grand Palace, Wat Arun and the Vimanmek Palace Complex), attractions and is famous for its nightlife.
