Local Knowledge & Cool Perks
While most of us think of Los Angeles when hearing “City Of Angels”, it is also the local name for Bangkok. Bangkok is only the English alias for Krung Thep Maha Nakhon, which is a shortening of “Krungthepmahanakhon Amonrattanakosin Mahintharayutthaya Mahadilokphop Nopphara- tratchathaniburirom Udomratchaniwetmahasathan Amonphimanawatansathit Sakkathattiyawitsanukamprasit” meaning: City of angels, great city of immortals, magnificent city of the nine gems, seat of the king, city of royal palaces, home of gods incarnate. Many tourists and travelers that arrive in Bangkok are overwhelmed by the chaos, dirty streets, pollution and the amount of people on the streets.
Many simply use Suvarnabhumi Airport as a stopover to continue down south to the islands or up north to the jungle. But many never get to experience the craziness and beauty of this huge city that extends all the way to the gulf of Thailand.
With a population of officially over 8 million it is one of the biggest cities in South East Asia. Bangkok has something to offer to every type of traveler. From cheap hostels to 5-Star hotels. From street food stalls to Michelin-Star restaurants. From cheap $1 shirts to luxury brands. Anybody, with any budget, will love this city once they know how to get around it correctly.
