Pléiades acquired this 50cm resolution optical image of the Phra Nakhon District in Bangkok, Thailand, on 17 June 2017.
Bangkok is the capital city of Thailand and is located on the coast of the Gulf of Thailand. The city has grown quickly in recent decades and is now home to 8 million people.
The Chao Phraya River passes through the city, part of which can be seen in this image. The Grand Palace, an historic complex of buildings which served as the seat of government until the 1930s, is located in the middle of the river on the east bank (in this image north is on the left side).
