Thailand was previously called Siam, and the capital was Sukhothai, then Ayutthaya before Bangkok became the most important city in the country in 1782 during the reign of King Rama the first.

You can travel on a budget or in style and accommodation options range from cheap backpacker hostels to mid-range hotels to luxury resorts. Thai is the official language, and if you can learn a few words before you arrive, it will be greatly appreciated by the locals. Many Thais speak English and many other languages with some taxi drivers and tailors in the tourist areas, for example, able to converse basically in an impressive number of languages. Baht is the local currency, and American dollars are accepted in some places. There are plenty of banks, ATMs, and money exchanges dotted all around the city.

Things To See And Do
It's easy to travel around the city with taxis, tuk-tuks, the sky train and subway except when there are traffic jams and sometimes it's faster to just go by foot. Another option is traveling by boat on the Chao Phraya River, which is a fun way to see the city from a unique viewpoint.
Visit the Grand Palace, Wat Pho with a reclining gold Buddha, Erawan Shrine and Wat Arun, where you will see monks going about their daily lives in bright orange robes.
Get lost in Chatuchak Market, one of the world's largest markets, and when you need to cool down, there are shopping malls all over the city full of local and international brands. China town is fab for shopping and Jim Thompson House is the place to buy luxury silk.
Bangkok isn't known for its parks as all the space is taken up with high-rise buildings and shophouses, but the exception is Lumpini Park, where there's plenty of wide-open green space with shade to chill out.
A traditional Thai massage can be needed after hours of shopping and sightseeing and is the perfect way to unwind or re-energize yourself for a night out on the town.
See traditional Muay Thai boxing at a stadium with the children fighting early in the evening and the serious fighters entering the ring later in the night. A cabaret show, dinner cruise or Thai traditional dance performance are also great entertainment options after the sun goes down. As the evening rolls on, the nightclubs and bars get busy and loud music will be pumping until the early hours of the morning.
Food & Restaurants in Bangkok
The city of Bangkok is heaven for foodies with delicious aromas tempting the tastebuds everywhere you go. Bangkok has something to suit everyone's taste and budget, from street food to local restaurants to fine dining on the city's highest rooftop.

Green curry, Pad Thai, Banana Leaf Blossom Salad, Tom Yum Goong (spicy shrimp soup) and Khao Pad Sapparod (pineapple fried rice) are just a few of the signature dishes of Thailand that you can indulge in any hour of the day in the city that never sleeps.
For fine dining, put Ministry of Crab, The Rain Tree Cafe and Elements on your dining must-do list. A romantic night will unfold at Vertigo, a trendy rooftop bar and restaurant in Banyan Tree with epic views of the city lights.
