Cebu Outdoor Geographic Adventures
Excerpted from the website:
- Founded more than 300 years ago as the new capital of an emerging empire, Bangkok today is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Asia. Its history revolves in Rattanakosin Island, so-called because it is bordered by the Chao Praya River on the west side and an inner city moat and canals on the eastern side. It is one place where temples and palaces glimmer with gold in the sun. It is the seat of power of a country that has never been colonized by a western power, and its monarchy is as marvelous and pompous as that of London. Its people are gentle, no wander it has been called a city of smiles -- and angels.
