Transportation

Bangkok is Thailand’s national capital and the largest city. Bangkok is economic and cultural center and has one of the Southeast Asia’s greatest ports and terminals. Most of the trade is done through port of Bangkok. There are more than 400 Buddhist temples which are called as Wats. The temple of emerald Buddha in grand palace is most famous. Bangkok is the most crowded city with temples, Industries and shops. It is the major tourist spot noted for cultural attractions. The city occupies 1,568.7 square kilometres (605.7 sq mi) in the Chao Phraya River delta in Central Thailand, and has a population of over 8 million, or 12.6 percent of the country's population. Over 14 million people (22.2 percent) live within the surrounding Bangkok Metropolitan Region, making Bangkok an extreme primate city, significantly dwarfing Thailand's other urban centres in terms of importance. There are 581 high-rise buildings in the city, ranking number 5 in the world. Bangkok traces its roots to a small trading post during the Ayutthaya Kingdom in the 15th century, which eventually grew in size and became the site of two capital cities: Thonburi in 1768 and Rattanakosin in 1782. Bangkok was at the heart of the modernization of Siam – later renamed Thailand – during the late 19th century, as the country faced pressures from the West. The city was at the centre of Thailand's political struggles, throughout the 20th century, as the country abolished absolute monarchy, adopted constitutional rule and underwent numerous coups and several uprisings. The city grew rapidly during the 1960s through the 1980s and now exerts a significant impact among Thailand's politics, economy, education, media and modern society. The city is well known for its vibrant street life and cultural landmarks, as well as its notorious red-light districts. The historic Grand Palace and Buddhist temples including WatArun and Wat Pho stand in contrast with other tourist attractions such as the nightlife scenes of Khaosan Road and Patpong. Bangkok is among the world's top tourist destinations. It is named the most visited city in MasterCard's Global Destination Cities Index, and was named "World's Best City" for four consecutive years by Travel + Leisure magazine.

The temperature in Bangkok varies from 25 °C in the winter season to 30 °C in the summer season. Due to the presence of river Chao Phraya there are many natural and artificial canals that interlace various districts of the place. Due to canals and water ways, Bangkok is called as 'Venice of the East'. The important tourist places in Bangkok are grand palace, museums, Victoria monument and wat pho temple. There are number of universities with excellent academic standards and modern facilities some of the universities include University of Bangkok Metropolis, Chulalongkorn University, Ramkhamhaeng University, Srinakharinwirot University.
