Bangkok (Krung Thep Maha Nakhon), also known as the “City of Angels”, is the capital of Thailand since 1768 after the destruction of Ayutthaya by Burmese invaders. However, the current Rattanakosin Kingdom did not begin until 1782, when Rama I decided to move the capital of Siam across the river from Thonburi on the west to Bangkok on the east of the Chao Phraya River.
