Bangkok is Thailand’s capital city and it is a large city known for ornate shrines and vibrant street life. The Asian investment flourishing in the 1980s and 1990s led many multinational corporations to locate their regional headquarters in Bangkok. The city is now a main regional force in finance and business. Bangkok is an international hub for transport and healthcare and has emerged as a regional centre for the arts, fashion and entertainment. Bangkok city is well known for its vibrant street life and cultural landmarks, as well as its notorious red-light districts. The historic Grand Palace and Buddhist temples including Wat Arun and Wat Pho stand in contrast with other tourist attractions such as the nightlife scenes of Khaosan Road and Patpong. It is amid the world's top tourist destinations and also named the world's best-visited city in MasterCard's Global Destination Cities Index, and was named "World's Best City" for four consecutive years by Travel + Leisure magazine.
Bangkok's swift growth amidst little urban planning and regulation has resulted in a haphazard cityscape and scanty infrastructure systems. Limited roads, despite an extensive expressway network, together with substantial private car usage, have led to chronic and crippling traffic congestion, which caused severe air pollution in the 1990s. The city has since turned to public transport in an attempt to solve this key problem. Five rapid transit lines are in operation now, with additional systems under construction or planned by the national government and the Bangkok.
