Bangkok is the capital of Thailand. It is both a city and a province. The city occupies an area of 1,569 km2 in the Chao Phraya River Delta in central Thailand and has a population of more than 9 million, more than 19 million people live in the metropolitan area of the capital, which is many times higher than than all other urban centers in the country.

Bangkok's roots can be traced back to a small trading post created in the fifteenth-century Ayutthaya Kingdom, which became important before becoming the site of the first capital, Thonburi, in 1768. But the official date of its founding Rama I, first king Chakri dynasty, is April 6, 1782, on the other side of the river. Bangkok entered the nineteenth century at the heart of the modernization movement of the Kingdom of Siam, while the country is under pressure from European colonizing nations. The city is then in the twentieth century the theater of political evolution of Thailand, including the abolition of the absolute monarchy, the adoption of a constitution, and several political upheavals sometimes violent. The city has experienced tremendous growth since the 1960s and today has a central influence on the political, economic, cultural, academic and media life of Thailand.

The Asian economic boom of the 1980s and 1990s brought many multinational companies to set up their regional headquarters in Bangkok. The city is an important business hub. It is also an international platform for transportation and health, as well as arts, fashion, entertainment and tourism. Bangkok is one of the most visited cities in the world. © Imagens Emmanuel Buchot
