Locals call it Krung Thep, the “City of Angels.” Tourists who think they are cool refer to it as “Big Mango.” Officially, it is Bangkok, Thailand.

While many of the scenes depicted in ‘The Hangover Part II’ can certainly be found in Thailand’s capital city, there is much more to Bangkok than wild parties and alcohol. The city is home to more than 8 million. Located in the Chao Phraya River delta, the city is hot year-round, and muggy during the summertime rainy season.

Wheelchair accessibility is poor, but improving. Adventurous wheelchair travelers can immerse themselves in Thai culture and experience many of the city’s most popular attractions with the information contained in this guide.
