Bangkok is the largest city and capital of Thailand and is the second most expensive city in South-east Asia (behind only Singapore). The boom of Asian economies during the 1980s and 1990s has made Bangkok a global financial center and the center for the regional headquarters of many multi-national companies. The city is a modern one, with clubs, fine dining, and plenty of shopping opportunities. However, the city retains its heritage-any tourist will find a number of holy shrines and cultural and historical sites throughout the city. The central stop for anyone visiting Thailand, Bangkok is one of the most enticing tourist destinations in the world.
