In front of Bangkok Metropolitan Administration there is this sign which is the official name of Bangkok. We have the distinction by Guinness World Record as having world longest place name:

Krungthepmahanakhon Amonrattanakosin Mahintharayutthaya Mahadilokphop Noppharatratchathaniburirom Udomratchaniwetmahasathan Amonphimanawatansathit Sakkathattiyawitsanukamprasit

For the local people, we call our city “Krungthep” but for the rest of the world:
