Bangkok, Thailand

"Contradictory" — this epithet seems to depict the essence of Bangkok. Some people call it "a dusty sack" or "a city with nothing to look at", while others call it "Venice of the East" and the record holder in terms of the number of excursions. Full name of Thailand capital is translated as "the City of Angels, supreme city, the city of eternal stones, city chosen by God..." and so on, twenty magnifical words in all, due to which the city was recorded in the Guinness book as the city with the longest name in the world. The full name is as follows: Krung Thep Mahanakhon Amon Rattanakosin Mahinthara Yuthaya Mahadilok Phop Noppharat Ratchathani Burirom Udomratchaniwet Mahasathan Amon Phiman Awatan Sathit Sakkathattiya Witsanukam Prasit.

Bangkok is located on both banks of the Chao Phraya River. It is divided by dozens of artificial channels with opaque water of cafe au lait color. These are a peculiar kind of water streets along which — on the banks or just in the water there are monasteries, residential houses, floating markets, and travelling by boats or motor boats here is as usual as a trip by bus. But the abundance of water produces high humidity and contributes to fog formation. As a result the visibility hardly reaches ten kilometers, and houses on the horizon are almost invisible.

One of the former kings of Thailand, Rama IV, at the end of the XIX century opened the doors for European merchants, and since that time Bangkok has begun to change rapidly: some channels have been backfilled to construct highways at that place, old wooden houses have been replaced with the latest architectural trends, the streets have begun to look more civilized, small shops appeared... One of the panoramas shows a bridge named after one of his successors, king Rama IX: it's the first cable bridge in Thailand and one of the biggest cable bridges in the world.

"Shine and poverty" — it's again about Bangkok. Numerous small houses of "each-in-his-own-way" architecture are side by side with luxurious villas and stylish skyscrapers (the latter, by the way, account for one thousand).

There are also five hundred temples of various confessions and 10-million population with representing perhaps every nation of our planet. About 17 million people are in the city every day due to tourists and labor migrants. Life here does not stop for a minute and is present in all possible diversity: from parks, museums and theatres to hot spots where adventure seekers from every corner of the world gather.

To enumerate at least the main sights of the city we'd need several pages. The locals themselves are puzzled when they are asked to recommend something to visit, and the guys from Thai helicopter company spent a good two hours while we were thinking where to fly. Unfortunately, after viewing the footage we had to exclude many of well-known Thai temples from the tour, because they look more interesting from the ground, but smallish from the bird's-eye view.

I live on a small Native American Reservation and will never leave the country, and am totally amazed. Thank you for this opportunity.

Shari White, USA

I lived in Singapore for four years nearly 20 years ago. I thought it was one of the nicest cities then but your panorama showing the current Singapore is awesome. My wife and I must start planning for a trip to see "The Dream City" as it is now!

John Sipkens, USA

Bangkok est une ville merveilleuse ainsi que le pays tout entier. J'y ai été la première fois en 1973 puis. Depuis 1975 j'y ai organisé des incentiv trips pour ma société et ce pendant une dizaine d'années. Après j'y suis retourné plusieurs fois avec ma famille, en tout plus de 25 fois, dernièrement encore en février 2013.
Ceci étant ce panorama est tout bonnement exceptionnel. Je m'y suis retrouvé. Vous féliciter est un faible mot. Merci pour le plaisir que j'ai eu a le regarder en écoutant cette musique qui reflète bien le bonheur que l'on peux y trouver.

Guillermo I Frattelli, Thailand

Pat Wutke, Bahrain

While the views are nice, it doesn't show the real
city of Bangkok as congested with traffic and the
dirty air polution. I'm surprised you did not publish one negative comment!

Peter Hood, Canada

The panoramas of Krung Thep are marvellous. The city has changed dramatically in the years since my family and I lived there in 1975 and 76. Our daughter was born there, whilst I was on a two year military posting. We gave her a Thai second name, of which she is most proud.
Whilst the city has changed I know that the Thai people are still just as nice and just as friendly as they were when we lived there.

Geoffrey Cartwright, Australia

Incredible, amazing, gorgeous.
I just saw that great panoramas on my 3 fitting screens with 6400 pix. resolution - I am completely dizzy... thank you for that great adventure.

Jacques Maué, Germany

Rita D'souza, India

My husband John and our two children lived in Bangkok for three and a half years. He was assigned to the American Embassy there, under Ambassador Graham Martin. We lived on Soi 1 "neung" in siamese) and loved the country and its inhabitants. Kids attended the International School there and went by boat on the Klong -the canal). This was safer than taking a Samlord (a three wheel car). I want to go again some day and visit the beautiful temples and the river. So much to do and so many beautiful areas.. Like the market on the river.. and many more. Thanks for this lovely site which is bringing it all back to me.

Hla Kyaing, USA

fantastic more websites like this please

bill cato, Australia

What a wonderful website. It will be most helpful to travellers, before and after their visits. Bangkok brings back memories of when we went their to meet our future daughter-in-law. She took us to see all the local sights and it was fantastic. She is here in the UK now, but will love this.

Norma Shaw, United Kingdom

Sawadee, Having visited Thailand six times and visiting many different places, I always love staying in Bangkok. So much to do and so much to see. One normally only sees the city from ground level and to see an aerial panorama completes the enjoyment of this interesting city. Well done, folks!

Geoff Bale, Australia

nice.thank you.

Solomon Barmatz, Israel

Thanks for your great website! Thanks for showing the up-to-date of Bangkok (from bird-eye view), the city where I was born and have left for the last 22 years. It looks totally different from what I saw 22 years ago. However, it brings back many fond memories and makes me miss my family in Bangkok even more. Thanks for your excellent work!!!

I've been living in Bangkok 1992 - 1998! An absolutely amazing town. I loved very much to stay downtown at Sukhumvit Road. What a wonderful time. Since than I've been travalling to the Town of Angel every second year. Next time beginning 2013. We are so looking forward for that trip!!

Rainer Lutz, Germany

I lived in Bankok,Thailand for two years 1966-1967. It was Awesome then and it's even better now. My husband served in the U.S. Army at JUSTIMAG in support of the Vietnamese War.

Barbara Wilder, Thailand



During the Viet Nham conflict I was able to visit Bangkok more than a few times. Loved each visit. Great food, great people. Back then the city was but a shell of what it is today. Sometimes progress seems to be not in the best interest of all concerned. But it is what the people want.Would love to visit again but places like James Jewelers is most likely not around anymore.

Clarence Raney, Msgt, USAFRet., USA

Thanks for the comment.

Varvara, AirPano

Green spaces opposite of the cargo port (cargo is in Bangkok) are called Bagkrachoa. It is located in Samutprakan province. Bagkrachoa shaped like a pig stomach. Located west of the Chao Phraya River Bend. In 1977,the Thai government has designated areas where Bagkrachoa is green. Is cultivated. Prohibit the construction of buildings. Construction of any building or exceeded. The heart of this Bagkrachoa has the garden park are over 200 rais(about 80 acres) This park is named Sri Nakornkhoenkants garden. It also called for a holding that a central park that is popular with tourists both Thais and foreigners. I am very proud of this area.

Chris F, Hong Kong

To use the song free, it is necessary to contact the author. We don't know how to do it.

jitendra parekh, India

For your information, Bangkok place name in thai language:
กรุงเทพมหานคร อมรรัตนโกสินทร์ มหินทรายุธยามหาดิลก ภพนพรัตน์ ราชธานีบุรีรมย์ อุดมราชนิเวศน์ มหาสถาน อมรพิมาน อวตารสถิต สักกะทัตติยะ วิษณุกรรมประสิทธิ์
In the official English romanisation, this is certified as the longest place name in the world in the Guinness book of records. It's pronounced something like:
Krung Thep Mahanakhon Amon Rattanakosin Mahinthara Ayuthaya Mahadilok Phop Noppharat Ratchathani Burirom Udomratchaniwet Mahasathan Amon Piman Awatan Sathit Sakkathattiya Witsanukam Prasit
The views are great. The quicksilver angels will agree with those images,of their city.


Thank you, Paul, for your informative message! It's quite interesting.
