Grand Mercure Bangkok Atrium
Bangkok officially known in Thai as Krung Thep Maha Nakhon and colloquially as Krung Thep is the capital and most populous city of Thailand. Over 14 million people (22.2 percent) lived within the surrounding Bangkok Metropolitan Region at the 2010 census, making Bangkok an extreme primate city, dwarfing Thailand's other urban centres in both size and importance to the national economy. Bangkok draws millions of tourists for good reason — many flock to the city for its famed food scene, vibrant nightlife, and shopping districts. Uma Puacksumran, a former flight attendant and Bangkok local, has traveled to fifty countries across five continents. The 3 most famous ones are Wat Pra Kaew, Wat Arun, and Wat Pho. Once you've seen them all, there are still many other temples worth visiting. Fortunately, many of the most famous temples in Bangkok are located near the Grand Palace, excellent for a day of fun exploration. Bangkok's culture is influenced by the modern day, yet still retains very proud links to its tradition and Buddhist spirituality. This culture can be found on every street corner, in the food, language, music, dance, the arts, and Buddhist temples. The warm and welcoming locals are perhaps the main reason why Thailand is called the Land of Smiles. Most of the locals are kind and friendly, so you will always see a lot of smiling faces around. The delicious cuisine, buzzing nightlife and serene temples are just a few of the reasons why travellers come to Bangkok. But there's more to the city than that and, according to the people who live there, many more reasons to love it. It is popular for its magnificent palaces, skyscrapers, museums and markets that attract tourists worldwide.
