The culturally rich city of Bangkok is the capital of Thailand and is one of the top tourist destinations in the world. With a history dating back to the 15th century, Bangkok is Thailand's centre of economics and culture. Residents of the city celebrate many festivals throughout the year and the streets are uniquely populated with street vendors, selling all manner of goods. In recent times, Bangkok has grown to strongly embrace sport, ranging from football to Muay Thai kickboxing. Traffic can be heavy, as cars are the primary mode of transport, but the city does offer an extensive bus network as an alternative. Bangkok is regarded as the country's centre of education and boasts several universities, which all happen to be the oldest in the country. Locals are known for being warm and welcoming towards expats and there are many different areas to choose from in which to live. Bangkok has many spectacular landmarks to see, such as the Grand Palace, Wat Pho and Wat Arun (also know as the ìTemple of Dawnî). Before you enjoy your new home of Bangkok, you must arrange shipping your items. There are two options for you to consider. A 20-foot container is suitable for the contents of a 3-bedroom house, whereas the contents of a 4 or 5-bedroom house would be better suited to a 40-foot container. A 40-foot container could also house the contents of a 3-bedroom house, as well as a car.
In general a car will fit into a 20ft container. You will also need to consider quarantine and tax charges usually levied on importing vehicles.
