Have you ever wondered what it feels like to travel by train in Bangkok? We found that it wasn’t the fastest way to travel but what we experienced was amazing.

2500 years ago, on the 15th day of the 8th lunar month, Lord Buddha gave the first sermon (or teaching) to his first five disciples.

The day is nowadays known as Asalha Puja.

Can you find any place that has a longer name than #Bangkok ?

Bangkok's Official Name: "Krungthepmahanakhon Amonrattanakosin Mahintharayutthaya Mahadilokphop Noppharatratchathaniburirom Udomratchaniwetmahasathan Amonphimanawatansathit Sakkathattiyawitsanukamprasit."

The meaning is simply, "the City of Angels."

When King Rama I decided to move the capital from #Thonburi, which is situated on the west of the Chao Phraya River, to #Bangkok on the other side, he decided to build a magnificent palace as a place for his residence and government. The area that he chose used to be a home for Chinese merchants. So he requested the Chinese to relocate to the Yaowarat area, which nowadays became the Bangkok China Town.

The construction began in 1782, and completed 3 years later. The palace is rectangular in shape, dividing into 3 quarters plus the Emerald Buddha Temple, with its western side stretching to the Chao Phraya River.

Despite the present King moving out to the Chitlada Palace, the most important royal rituals and ceremonies, including coronations and lying-in-state ceremonies are still held in this palace.

Interesting facts about Thailand.
Fact #1: #Thailand is sometimes referred to as the Land of Smiles. When talking with foreigners, Thais smile a lot, but these smiles aren't always easy to interpret. Sometimes it can mean yes, sometimes it means no, but many times it just means "I don't understand."
