Thailand's capital to be renamed

 Thailand's capital will be renamed

The capital of Thailand, the city of Bangkok, will be officially renamed: the city will receive a new foreign name.

This is reported by the Bangkok Post.

The official foreign name of the capital will sound like Krung Thep Maha Nakhon, but both options can be used.

It is noted that the new name of the capital will not be valid until a special committee checks it.

By the way, in Thai the capital was always called Krung Thep Maha Nakhon, but Bangkok remained the English name for many years.
