About Bangkok - presentation, information, photos and recommendations

Bangkok, Thailand's capital is a bustling city, crowded and very exotic. Often called "City of Angels" or "Venice of the East", Bangkok's is no more than 22 areas that deserves the title "city center", over 400 temples, 800 hotels and a lot of skyscrapers .

The town began as a small fair, known as Bang Makok and full name Krung Thep Maha Nakhon is. Bangkok is the place where very tall buildings are built with amazing rapidity. Rich culture and countless places to visit Bangkok's turn in one of the most popular holiday destinations in Asia. Each year no more than 15 million tourists come here.

Bangkok dominates the urban hierarchy and the political, cultural, commercial and Thailand since the eighteenth century. Although modern and Western, Bangkok is still a sleepy Thai village in traffic noise and night life. The city itself is seething on the east side of the river Chao Phraya. The city is sinking 5cm each year, but the fun is too large to discourage anyone.

Bangkok has a tropical wet and dry. Average temperatures in the city are about 2 ° C (3.6 ° F) higher than those shown for the Don Mueang airport. The highest maximum temperature recorded is 40.8 ° C (105.4 ° F) and the lowest minimum temperature recorded is 9.9 ° C (49.8 ° F).

Noisy, sweaty, exotic Bangkok is a city full of life. For some, the frenetic pace, heat, traffic and lack of personal space can be overwhelming, but for many others sheer dynamism is intoxicating.

With an interesting mix between traditional Eastern and modern Western, every street in Bangkok provided surprises for visitors. Ramshackle buildings to curl up next to exotic temples surrounded by delightful gardens, above which rise hotels and modern office buildings.

Bangkok has become a big city, as traffic jams, as well as mobile phones and clothing company that is a permanent presence on the streets. Traffic chaos on the streets is reflected in traffic congestion on the Chao Phraya River, which dissects the city and is crossed regularly by boats, taxis and boats.

But traditional Thai life style is never far away. "Swimming" among cars stopped in traffic in the monks 'saffron' collect offerings, while a few steps from downtown whole communities still live in houses on stilts near the river, earning his living with occupations that were not changed for centuries.
