Map of Bangkok

Below you can find a useful map of Bangkok, a gigantic metropolis that you probably can`t navigate without a good map to help you get oriented.

Bangkok, Thailand is known in Thai as Krung Thep Maha Nakhon, or just Krun Thep for short. Krun Thep means "City of Angels". It`s the capital and by far the largest city in Thailand with a city population of 12 million - and more than 14.5 million if we count the metropolitan area.

When you think of Southeast Asia, you probably think of poverty and third world conditions. And you most definitely still see pockets of that in Bangkok. But it is a city that has developed tremendously over recent decades and is a highly developed and modernizing city.

Bangkok has a tropical climate with two seasons: wet and dry. The rainy season lasts from May to October, and the dry season lasts from November through April. High temperatures are over 30 degrees throughout the year, with average lows over 20 throughout the year. Though during the wet season, cloud cover often provides temporary relief from the pounding heat of the sun. So the dry season can feel much hotter even though there is little difference in air temperature.
