Bangkok is the most visited city in the world and also the most misunderstood. The film tracks the development of the Thai capital from a small trading post in the late 18th century to the sprawling metropolis of today. We seek to offer a more nuanced view than the hackneyed cliches offered by the media and many bloggers and influencers. Bangkok is everything you'ce ever read about it - and so much more. It's the City of Angels
