According to a new Bangkok infographic published by Cheap Flights to Bangkok, Bangkok has become a permanent fixture on the backpacker trail, thanks to its exciting culture and affordability. The low budget traveler has made Bangkok the most visited city in the world on MasterCard’s Global Destination Cities Index; Travel and Leisure Magazine has also named the oriental city the “World’s Best City” for four consecutive years running.
Although, one night in Bangkok makes a hard man humble, its vibrant culture and cost-efficient travel arrangements also attract travelers with a full set of luggage. “…Trust me, it’s paradise,” writes author of “The Beach,” Alex Garland. “This is where the hungry come to feed, for mine is a generation that circles the globe and searches for something we haven’t tried before… Just keep your mind open and suck in the experience. And if it hurts, you know what? It’s probably worth it.”
So, its Iceland or the Philippines or Hastings or this place, sings Murray Head. He probably got the entire picture of Bangkok in his famous song “One Night in Bangkok,” as a tourist, whose every move is among the purest. Bangkok is home to ten million people and not all of them deal in shady business.
The city is also a major force in business and finance in the region as well as an international center for transportation and healthcare. However, the most attractive feature of Bangkok to the worldly traveler is as a regional hub for arts, entertainment and fashion. Bangkok has a vibrant culture and historical landmarks, as well as its notorious red-light districts.
One fact you may want to keep in mind before you visit Bangkok is it has the longest real name of any city in the world. Translated the name means: “The city of angels, the great city, the eternal jewel city, the impregnable city 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 Vishnukam.” – Which pretty much says it all.
