Bangkok, Thailand’s capital, is known for ornate shrines and vibrant street life. Nearly 90% of the just over 11 million residents are practicing Buddhists.

Notable areas in the city are the Rattanakosin royal district, home to the opulent Grand Palace and its sacred Wat Phra Kaew Temple. Nearby is Wat Pho Temple with an enormous reclining Buddha and, on the opposite shore, Wat Arun Temple with its steep steps and Khmer-style spire.

One of the most popular tourist destinations in the world, Bangkok has grown rapidly in the past 30 years. Almost 40% of the population is age 20 or younger. One challenge for the city is the influx of young people moving from rural villages to the city seeking work and education.

The sex and human trafficking trades are active in Bangkok and throughout Thailand, despite the government’s efforts to eradicate them. It is estimated that more than 600,000 victims of trafficking are in the country. Many of these victims are children trapped in the sex trade in the numerous brothels in Bangkok.
