Bangkok is the capital of the Kingdom of Thailand, located at the heart of south-east Asia, straddling the country’s lifeline, the Chao Phraya River. It is one of the most modern and cosmopolitan cities in the region and viewed as a modern-day melting pot of contrasting cultures and faiths. Towering skyscrapers stand in harmony next to temples and monasteries while the luxury malls and shopping centres compete with the street bazaars and floating markets.
