Krung Thep Maha Nakhon or simply Krung Thep meaning “city of angels”. Bangkok is by far the most densely populated city in Thailand with about 12 million people. Bangkok was a small trading post near the mouth of the Chao Phraya River during the Ayutthaya Kingdom in the 15th century. It eventually grew in size and became the site of two capital cities: Thonburi in 1768 and Rattanakosin in 1782.
I remembered this trip so well since it was kind of a bummer. My favorite travel buddy, partner till death Noreen got sick with Dengue Fever during this time. I would say that this is everyone’s worst nightmare..travelling and your really sick at the same time. Since this would be our first time at Bangkok, it was kinda fun at the same time since noreen’s high fever were subsided due to the excitement roaming the streets and bazaars.. Here are some snaps.
