Bangkok is a populous and capital city of the Kingdom of Thailand. The city is located by Chao Phraya river delta which is in Central Thailand. The city has a population of about eight million, while a population of 14 million occupies the Bangkok Metropolitan Region.
Bangkok’s history can be traced back to the time when it was a trading post of miniscule proportions during the time of the Ayutthaya Kingdom. From its trading operations in the 15th century, it grew to be a site where dual capital cities were located, Rattanakosin and Thonburi, which existed in the same place in the eighteenth century. When Siam was being modernized Bangkok was centered on this project and later Siam came to be known as Thailand. There were political struggles that the country went through in the 20th century as the country moved to a constitutional rule from monarchy. When the investment boom took place in the Asian countries during the nineties, several multinational corporations made Bangkok their regional headquarters. The city soon had a flourishing business hub along with which grew other service sectors like health care, transport, entertainment, fashion, art and culture.
