HISTORY FROM BANGKOK


Bangkok is the capital and largest city of Thailand. Strictly speaking, Bangkok is not the name of the capital, although foreigners use it universalmente.Bangkok means "wild plum village 'is the name of part of the Thon Buri side of the river. Thus, Bangkok is known in Thai as Krung Thep Mahanakhon meaning "city of angels". It was a small trading post at the mouth of the Chao Phraya River during the Ayutthaya Kingdom. He came to the forefront of Siam when she received the capital city status in 1768 after the burning of Ayutthaya. However, the current Rattanakosin Kingdom did not begin until 1782 when Rama I moved the capital to the Rattanakosin Island, after the death of King Taksin. The Rattanakosin capital is now formally called "Phra Nakhon" pertaining to the ancient boundaries at the heart of the metropolis and the name Bangkok incorporates the urban build-up since the eighteenth century, with its own public administration and governor. During the last two hundred years, Bangkok has grown to become the political, social and economic center of not only Thailand but for Indochina and Southeast Asia. His influence on art, politics, fashion, education and entertainment as well as in business, has provided to Bangkok global city status. The city has a population of about 8.5 million people while the great Bangkok area has 11,971,000 inhabitants (January 2008) .2 This, in turn, has changed since the country has gone from being a fairly homogenous to an increasingly vibrant mix of Western, with groups from India and China, giving the city a cosmopolitan Thai population status.
