Bangkok, the capital of Thailand, is one of the six provinces of the Bangkok metropolitan area with a population of over 5,000,000.
In Bangkok, people are mostly out of three competitions. 80% of the local population is Thai; 10 percent of Chinese immigrants; 3% of the population is Malay, while the balance is a mixture of Mons, Khmers and Hill Tribes.
Bangkok was always the intersection of migration, and it was evident from the 19th century until the Second World War. Many Chinese arrived in Bangkok, where they were looking for work because jobs were scarce in China. The Chinese population in Bangkok was so big that street signs had to be written in Chinese. However, after the end of World War II, China's immigration to Bangkok was abolished due to stricter immigration laws.
However, people living in rural Thailand are looking for a lot of work in Bangkok, which means that Bangkok faces the usual problems of over-population. Housing shortages, traffic jams and unemployment.
If we look closely at Bangkok, we will see that the Thai citizens are rich and poor, while the middle class are minorities and foreigners. At the same time, most business enterprises in Bangkok, especially those in Sam Peng, are Chinese leaders.
Most people in Bangkok practice Theravada buddhism. 5% of the population follow Islam, while Christianity and Hinduism practice only a few people.
Most thais living in Bangkok have deep pride and dignity. They also appreciated kindness. In Bangkok, friendship, courtesy and self-confidence stand out. Most people are always ready to help anyone, like a stranger, with a smile on his face.
