    Partly because you don't know how to pronounce them properly and in the case of Bangkok, because nobody in Thailand calls it that, only ฝรั่ง.

    They call it Krung Thep, or Krungthepmahanakorn, although it actually has a much longer name;

    Krungthepmahanakhon Amonrattanakosin Mahintharayutthaya Mahadilokphop Noppharatratchathaniburirom Udomratchaniwetmahasathan Amonphimanawatansathit Sakkathattiyawitsanukamprasit

    (กรุงเทพมหานคร อมรรัตนโกสินทร์ มหินทรายุธยา มหาดิลกภพ นพรัตนราชธานีบูรีรมย์ อุดมราชนิเวศน์มหาสถาน อมรพิมานอวตารสถิต สักกะทัตติยวิษณุกรรมประสิทธิ์)

    Good luck saying that.
