Some of the names by which Bangkok is known are Great City of Angels, the Supreme Warehouse of Divine Jewels, the Great Land Unconquerable, the Grand and Prominent World, the Royal and Delightful Capital City Full of Ninefold Gems, the Highest Royal Dwelling and Grand Palace, the Divine Shelter and Living Place of the Reincarnated One, Venice of the East, but believe it or not, the official full name of Bangkok …. don’t be surprised …. it won the Guinness Book of Records’ longest place name --
Hi! Wichai, many thanks for the book about Thailand. Did I spell the full name of Bangkok correctly? I'll be posting an entry about my last trip to Thailand very soon!
