BANGKOK - City of Angels
name Bangkok is actually a Western nickname.
The original village that
was called Bangkok centuries ago no longer exists. Modern Bangkok's
proper Thai name is Krung thep mahanakhon amorn ratanakosin
mahintharayutthaya mahadilok popnoparat ratchathani burirom
udomratchanivetmahasathan amornpiman avatarnsathit
sakkathattiyavisnukarmprasit, which, according to the Guinness Book of
Records, is the longest location name in the world. In English, this
translates into "The city of angels, the
great city, the residence of the Emerald Buddha, the impregnable city
of Ayutthaya of God Indra, the grand capital of the world endowed with
nine precious gems, the happy city, abounding in an enormous Royal
Palace that resembles the heavenly abode where reigns the reincarnated
god, a city given by Indra and built by Vishnukarn."
Thais simply refer to their capital city as Krung Thep, or the "City of Angels."
