Nicknamed the ‘City of Angels’, Bangkok–or Krung Thep–certainly does not shy away from living up to its status as Thailand’s capital. It was founded in 1782, and has since developed into a prime location for political, economic and cultural affairs. Locals consider the city to be a present-day embodiment of the Thai spirit of ‘sanuk’–that is, fun. It is also famous for being the city with arguably the longest full name in the world, spanning over a total of 160 characters.
