Bangkok is referred to as the 'Venice of the East' due to its active nightlife scene as well as having as many canals as Venice in Italy. It is also referred to as Krung Thep (กรุงเทพ), which roughly translates to 'City of Angels'.due to its fascination with city planning. Who knew!
With a large urban center, amazing buildings (old and new), delicious food, historic sites, great shopping and relaxing waterfront experiences, it no wonder Bangkok is the top tourist destination in Asia, after by Dubai. Gotta go see it.
