Bangkok is one of the world’s fastest growing tourist cities and one of the most frequently visited cities in the world. The city has had amazing tourist numbers for so long that now those choices can be overwhelming! Over 12 million people dwell in this city, popular for trade since the 15th century. The Thai name Krung Thep Maha Nakhon or simply Krung Thep translates into English as “city of angels.” This name is popular in many languages, such as its Spanish version, Los Angeles, United States. Not only is Bangkok the political, social and economic center of Thailand, it is one of the leading cities in the Southeast Asian region.

Ranked 3rd Top City Destination by Euromonitor International, Bangkok is only topped by London, England, and NYC in the USA. Tourists visit from the Asia Pacific region, United Kingdom, Germany, Australia, Scandinavia, and the United States. The three major languages spoken in Thailand are obviously the Thai language, Tinglisha somewhat comical name for the Thai version of the English language, and Farang, being a Thai word describing a foreigner of European ancestry.

Many of the great temples are located in or around Bangkok and are of great interest especially to Western tourists. These temples as well as other World Heritage Sites (a place that is listed by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) as of special cultural or physical significance) are among the most popular sites to visit while in Bangkok.
