Bangkok is the capital and largest city of Thailand. Strictly speaking, Bangkok is not the name of the capital, although foreigners use it universally. Bangkok means "Village of the wild plum 'is the name of part of the Thon Buri side of the river. So Bangkok is known in Thai as Krung Thep MahaNakhon, which means "city of angels." It was a small trading post at the mouth of the Chao Phraya River during the Ayutthaya Kingdom. He came to the forefront of Siam, when he received the capital city status in 1768 after burning Ayutthaya. However, the current Rattanakosin Kingdom did not begin until 1782 when he moved the capital across the river by Rama I, after the death of King Taksin. The Rattanakosin capital is now formally called "Phra Nakhon" belonging to the ancient boundaries in the heart of the metropolis and the name of Bangkok incorporates the urban build-up since the eighteenth century, with its own government and governor. During the last two hundred years, Bangkok has grown to become the political, social and economic not only Thailand but in Indochina and Southeast Asia. His influence in art, politics, fashion, education and entertainment as well as in business, has given Bangkok the status of global city.
