Krung Thep Maha Nakhon (Bangkok) on the Chao Phraya river is the capital city of Thailand and the country's economic center. It is one of the most populous cities in the world with its number of inhabitants very roughly estimated at somewhere between 6 and 22 million people. Bangkok is the modern skyscraper-lined gateway to Asia and one of the region's largest air transport hubs. The city has plenty of parks and green zones, a surprisingly laid-back atmosphere, a tropical monsoon climate and higher temperatures than in any other city in the world. Over 90% of its inhabitants are Buddhist. The city is known as a safe destination - overcharging and petty theft are far more common than violent crime, which is rare. Tourist sights are in abundance and include countless palaces, famous temples and other cultural highlights. Bangkok also offers relaxing retreats nearby, luxurious shopping, and many insights into the fascinating culture of Thailand.
