Visitor to Thailand’s capital cannot help being overwhelmed by it all. The Bangkok city is daunting—a steamy, modern sprawl that seems to carry on endlessly. The Bangkok traffic is maddening, the din endless, and the crowds irritating. Most can’t wait to escape to the beaches of the South or the jungles and mountains in the North. That’s a shame, because to get involved with Bangkok is to enjoy one of Asia’s great cities.
Bangkok’s full name is the longest city name in the world. It is Krungthepmahanakhon Amonratankosin Mahintharayutthaya Mahadilokphop Nophosin Ratchathaniburirom Udomrathaniwetmahasa Amonphiman Awatansathit Sakkathatiya Witsanukamprasit. This means: City of Angels, Great City of Immortals, Magnificent City of the Nine Gems, Seat of the King, City of Royal Palaces, Home of the Gods Incarnate, Erected by Visvakarman at Indra’s Behest. Thais commonly call the city Krung Threp, or City of Angels.
Bangkok (bang means “riverside village”; kok, “a wild olive”) became Thailand’s capital when Rama I moved the city across the Chao Phraya river from Thon Burij in 1782 to ensure fortification against the Burmese, who had sacked the capital of Ayutthaya. Magnificent palaces, temples, and canals were built. The area, known as Rattanakosin island, or the old royal city, exists today, housing the Grand Palace, the National Museum, and some of the city’s most celebrated wats (temple complexes).
From Rattanakosin the city spread. Chinese merchants, under royal orders, moved eastward to form a new settlement—today’s vibrant Chinatown. King Chulalongkown (Rama V), inspired by his European travels, built wide, tree-lined boulevards and erected neoclassic buildings that are still much in evidence in Dusit, north of Rattanakosin.
Unbridled development began in the late 1950s and has, more or less, continued since. Canals (Khlongs), which had earned the city the appellation of the Venice of the East by early European travelers, were mostly filled in and roads built. Rows of monotonous shops were constructed. Later came the mad rush of office towers, hotels, and condominiums with little, if any, thought to urban planning.
Today, Bangkok hammers the senses of visitors with its controlled chaos. But scratch the surface of this metropolis—population about eight million—and you’ll find pockets of surprising beauty and grace. A surfeit of grand, riotously ornate Thai architecture links the city to its past, while gleaming modern, at times fantastic, skyscrapers point to its future. Just off the frenetic, traffic-clogged streets are quiet, snaking sois (side streets) with rows of wooden houses and a community feel. A trip on the city’s Skytrain unfolds rooftop views of parks, lush tropical gardens, and huge colonial mansions that have escaped development. The main waterway, the Chao Phraya river, reveals a tranquil side of the city; exploring it and the maze of khlongs either by public water transport or by charter is a highlight of visit.
Indeed, it is the dichotomy of Bangkok that appeals. Bangkok is a place where the truly shocking, horrendous, and horrible exist alongside moments of pure beauty. Sukhumvit Road, a main avenue in the eastern part of the city, is a perfect example. Sukhumvit appears to be a creation of the devil, with absurdly packed sidewalks, broken chunks of concrete, the sky blackened by the concrete pillars and tracks of the skytrain, vendors crammed into every square inch, and a total sense of anarchy and mayhem. Yet, walk slowly and you see the magnificence of carved fruit among vendors selling copy watches, the smiling girl selling exquisite floral baskets next to an open sewer, a Buddhist shrine at a busy intersection, and perhaps an old Hindu astrologer predicting people’s fortunes in the middle of all this madness.
At night the city explodes with the liveliest entertainment in Asia. Superb Thai restaurants are found in traditional houses. International cuisine ranks with the world’s best. Sophisticated nightclubs, along with raunchy bars and entertainment venues, are scattered through the city. About the only thing Bangkok doesn’t offer the visitor is boredom.
Bangkok World-class traffic jams are a constant frustration. Many locals, and the odd adventurous tourist, opt for the city’s army of motorcycle taxis that weave expertly through traffic. It is a quick, risky, hair-raising way to get around. Tuk tuks, colorful three-wheeled taxis—named because of the noise made by their small engines—are fun for short journeys but are often more expensive (and dangerous) than taxis. Always agree on a price beforehand. The city’s Skytrain and subway are the most efficient, agreeable ways to get around the city.
