bangkok

The capital of Thailand, Bangkok is known locally as Krung Thep Maha Nakhon for short (there are actually 42 syllables in total, for those with large lungs).

Sometimes called "the Venice of the East" for its canals – it is built around the majestic Chao Phraya River. But today it has many modern buildings, horrific traffic, and a population estimated at up to 15 million.

Bloggers may be writing about of about the realities of life there, about holidaying there, about movies set in the city. Or they may be living there.
