Have a look at this link: A Visit To The City Of Bangkok | Handphone Bekas dan Baru
"New York City Is Known As The City That Never Sleeps Well In South East Asia Its Twin Sister Is Bangkok Also Known As The City Of Angels Although I could never figure out why.... from visit-chiang-mai-online.com"
I would hardly quote that website as anything of import.Just because it's on a webpage doesn't mean its accurate. Even the writer didn't have a clue what it meant. Looks like cut paste gibberish to me.

You are correct, I did, sorry. Here is the correct link, https://secure.wikimedia.org/wikiped..._Asia#Thailand and a listing of all the twin cities Bangkok has. New York is one of them:
Australia Brisbane, Australia

Australia Sydney, Australia
People's Republic of China Beijing, China
Germany Berlin, Germany
Hungary Budapest, Hungary
Italy Milan, Italy
Japan Fukuoka, Fukuoka, Japan
Mongolia Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia

South Africa Cape Town, South Africa

Hard to believe anyone would call them twins! Must be fraternal? That list is bizarre--Cape Town?? One of the most beautiful cities in the world (and really small compared to BKK) A true head-scratcher.
