DescriptionThis image taken from space is part of a collection of more than 400 amazing satellite pictures provided by Spot Image. Bangkok is the capital, largest urban area and primate city of Thailand. It is the world's 22nd largest city by population with approximately 6,704,000 residents, but due to large unregistered influxes of migrants from the North East of Thailand and of many nations across Asia, the population of greater Bangkok is estimated at nearly 15 million people.
