Hot, hottest, Bangkok!
Welcome to Bangkok, the capital of Thailand, and by far, one of the most popular and busiest cities in the world!
Bangkok is a city of many wonders. Not only it holds the record for having the longest name, consisting of 169 characters, it also breaks other records. It is supposed to be the hottest city. Its average high temperatures of 88 degrees Fahrenheit place it on this map and guarantee you’ll be nice and warm in this urban jungle all year long.
City of angels, as a part of its long name translates, is also known as Venice of the East. Similar to the charming Italian gem, Bangkok was built over a dozen of canals. Most of them have now been filled and paved. Another thing it has in common with Venice is a threat of sinking. So you better hurry and visit soon.
The city is bursting with unique energy. Maybe that’s because it is the home of Red Bull. In 1976 Chaleo Yoovidhya helped co-create this world’s most popular and famous energy drink. But the magnificent city of the nine gems, the seat of the king, the city of royal palaces and home of gods incarnate, as other parts of its name suggest, is a never sleeping and ever-growing metropole, with or without Red Bull.
This short guide will help you around the city and give you an insight of what to see and do.
From the famous floating markets, lush and posh malls, peaceful temples, stunning palaces, delicious food, and great parties- Bangkok has the whole package. An intriguing mixture of old and new will steal your heart and have you coming back for more.
The only thing you should be careful about is not to step on Thai currency, as it is against the law. So it is leaving your house without underwear- but those are just some funny facts about this city that add to its charm.
