The city with the Guinness book record for the longest name of a place is Bangkok. Apparently, Bangkok is the city’s nickname and it’s ceremonial name is “Krung Thep Mahanakhon Amon Rattanakosin Mahinthara Yuthaya Mahadilok Phop Noppharat Ratchathani Burirom Udomratchaniwet Mahasathan Amon Piman Awatan Sathit Sakkathattiya Witsanukam Prasit!"

Just a few weeks ago, Indonesia confirmed their plan in moving the administrative capital from Jakarta to East Kalimantan. Bangkok has taken a similar approach. Overcrowding, pollution, rising sea levels and heavy traffic congestion has taken its toll on Thailand's capital city. 

In comparison, Bangkok ranks just one position behind Jakarta in world’s traffic congestion. This is not the first time that Bangkok has considered relocating their capital and mixed reviews were received, unsurprisingly.

With the move in attracting more foreign business in Thailand, the country will need to seriously consider how in the long term these foreign investments may increase the toll that Bangkok is currently dealing with.

How would this potential move impact your relocation program?
