The following is based on a question during last weekend’s pub-quiz that was organized by AnimalsTaiwan:
What is the longest place name in the world?
The question during the quiz stated Taumatawhakatangihangakoauauotamateapokaiwhenuakitanatahu, the name of a hill in New Zealand (where the what and where were the answer sought).
However I always thought Bangkok, or rather it’s Thai name (romanized as: Krungthepmahanakonbowornratanakosinmahintarayudyayamahadiloponoparatanarajthaniburiromudomrajniwesmahasatarnamornpimarnavatarsatitsakattiyavisanukamphrasit) is the longest place name in the world.
So who should get the title - New Zealand or Thailand?
