Bangkok, Thailand

Thailand's capital....and as the card says "A bird eye view over Bangkok in the evening"....looks really nice.

Did you know that the full ceremonial name of the city given by King Buddha Yodfa Chulaloke, and later edited by King Mongkut, is:

Krung Thep Mahanakhon Amon Rattanakosin Mahinthara Yuthaya Mahadilok Phop Noppharat Ratchathani Burirom Udomratchaniwet Mahasathan Amon Phiman Awatan Sathit Sakkathattiya Witsanukam Prasit.

It is a combination of two ancient Indian languages, Sanskrit and Pali, and can be translated as: The city of angels, the great city, the eternal jewel city, the impregnable city of God Indra, the grand capital of the world endowed with nine precious gems, the happy city abounding in an enormous Royal Palace that resembles the heavenly abode where reins the reincarnated God, a city given by Indra and built by Vishnukarm.

Errrm.....I'll stick to Bangkok....
