          I've been told that the official name of the capital of Thailand is actually an enormously long word (or phrase?). Numerous Thai students have recited it for me but there is no chance in the universe I would remember it.

            It's

            Krungthep mahanakorn amornrattanakosin mahintara ayuttaya mahadilok pobnopparat ratchatani burirom udomratchaniwate mahasatharn amornpiman awatansathit sakkatattiya visanu kamprasit

            I'm not kidding smile  And the only reason why I or most Thais could remember it is because it's been made into a song by a very popular band some 20 years ago! LOL!

              By the way, Thais call their capital Krungthep, not Bangkok.  Bangkok is the old name for the capital.
