The authentic name The city is very long and its meaning is as follows: «City of angels, the great city, the city of eternal jewel, the impenetrable city of the god Indra, the magnificent capital of the world endowed with nine precious gems, the happy city, that abounds in a colossal Royal Palace that resembles the divine domicile where the reincarnated gods reign, a city provided by Indra and built by Vishnukam ».

Bangkok is the most economically important city in Thailand. The ‘Chao Phraya’ river makes the city function as a port. Definitely, tourism is one of the main sources of income, not to say the main one.

When we go from purchasesWe will soon realize that jewelry is one of the star activities in the city. Silver and bronze are bought and sold at a high rate.
Unfortunately the prostitution It is one of the trickiest issues in the country that has made the city a sex tourism destination in which many minors are involved.

The transport network is very complete. Many new elevated highways have been built and also a highway that completely surrounds the city. The railway line was completed in 1999 and in 2004 the subway was completed.
Thanks to the bus we can move around all the cities and provinces of Bangkok.
