Bangkok

Bangkok

Be sure to fly with Austrian Airlines to Bangkok and experience a modern city that is buzzing with activity and nightlife. Make sure to visit the city's most famous landmark: the Grand Palace. This immense building was built in 1782 and was the home of the Thai king for 150 years. While at the Grand Palace, take the time to see the Emerald Buddha at the Wat Pra Kaeo. This impressive rendering of Buddha is carved from a single piece of emerald and dates back to the 15th Century. In the evening, you can choose from thousands of different Thai restaurants, as well as from a wide choice of establishments serving international cuisine. The more adventurous should try eating the 'street food' available from vendors all over the city. After dinner, make sure to sample Bangkok's colourful nightlife.

Long haul

Why not fly to some faraway place? Austrian Airlines offers direct flights from Vienna to some of the world's most popular long-haul destinations, including Bangkok, New York, Beijing, Shanghai, Toronto, Male, Colombo, Mauritius and Washington.

Shopping

Shopping in Bangkok
Siam Paragon
There is nothing you can't find here. Basically you could live in the Siam Paragon (yes, there's also a hotel in the complex) and you wouldn't have to set a foot in front of the door ever again. On an incredible area of 500.000 square meters the power-consumers can decide between 250 shops, 16 cinemas, 52 bowling alleys, three fair halls, five meeting rooms, dozens of restaurants, one food hall and a big aquarium. On the luxury-floor brands like Dolce&Gabbana, Chanel and Gucci outdo one another with extraordinarily designed stores. If you don't feel satisfied with a bag at the price of the average monthly wage of a Thai you can swipe your credit card in the Ferrari-showroom and drive home in a new sports car.   In short: the Siam Paragon is (beside the Emporium) the most exclusive and expensive shopping center, and it is twelve hours a day, seven days a week jam-packed. The Thais went their way to this shopping-temple because they love entertainment. And in the Siam Paragon some event, show or fair takes place everyday. For bargains you rather visit the Night Market.

Phranakorn Hotel
No matter what time you arrive in the Phranakorn Nornlen - and be it in the middle of the night; a welcome with a nice smile is always there. The big plus of this little boutique hotel are the many green areas, terraces and wells as well as the staff which will become a second family in no time.   The rooms are simple and in some cases small (starting from 36 Euros), but they are decorated lovingly and with much creativity - and the breakfast tastes fantastic, especially the traditional Thai-tea. On the small roof there is a little terrace with a vegetable garden (the crop serves for the breakfast) where one can relax. The little tables of the comfortable bar on the first floor look directly at a big Buddha statue.   Overall, the Phranakorn Nornlen is a low-priced and heartwarming alternative to anonymous hotel chains. Five-star comfort, however, should not be expected. The beds, for instance, are relatively hard as is usual in Thailand, but the staff provides the guests gladly with additional blankets. Besides, there is always a masseuse at service.

Central Food
Thai? Korean? Or maybe Italian? The Central World shopping mall has dedicated its seventh floor to the shopaholics' creature comforts - at a high standard. 19 restaurants and open kitchens of all kinds string together and the smell of dishes that serve all imaginable tastes is in the air across hundreds of square metres. The selection seems to be endless: spicy mango salads from the Thai, Japanese california rolls, freshly prepared smoothies at the fruit bar that is metres long and tiramisu from the Italian.   You can eat and chat along the huge window wall with view on the city and red leather armchairs. And after the feast you can fall into the loungers - in one of the numerous massage parlours - close your eyes and have a relaxing foot massage.

Seashell Museum
A candy store? No, these are scallops in all kinds of colours at the Seashell Museum in Bangkok - we know them from the logo of a Dutch fuel supplier. There are more than 3,000 pieces and 600 species of salt and freshwater animals: snails, molluscs and other sea dwellers. You will recognise the museum at the Soi Silom by the oversized snail on the grey/blue glitter facade and the European architectural style.   For a couple of decades Jom Patamakantin and his father have collected the exhibits. A part of the collection is accessible to the public in glass cabinets throughout the three-level building, underneath: a giant clam and a rare slit shell which can only be found in great depths. In the shop next to it you'll find the shells manufactured into pieces of jewellery.
