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.

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.

Greyhound Café
Street kitchen is nothing for the target group of Greyhound Cafés. The young Thai high society prefers to gather in the second floor of the exclusive and trendy shopping mall Emporium because here one finds the most popular subsidiary of the restaurant chain. The high walls are adorned with creative prints and the interior is black and white mixed with some brown elements. On the menu you especially find fusion food - European dishes with a Thai touch and vice versa. In this sense, dishes like Thai-anchovy-spaghetti are served. But in the first place it's not about the food but the table with the best view on the restaurant. Because there's a lot to see: the crowds of attractive or at least stylish Asians is a sight worth seeing on its own. But precisely because there's so much going on, sometimes you have to wait a little longer for your beef salad with mint leafs - provided it's still available. The best would be to take yourself an hour for people peeking, coffee and gossip in the air-conditioned restaurant and then go outside and have original Thai food in one of the street kitchens located to the left of the Emporium.

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.

Narai Phand
To support Thai arts and crafts the ministry for industry has opened the Narai Phand on the Phloen Chit Road together with investors from the private sector. For about 72 years it has been Thailand's biggest shopping center for local premium arts and crafts from the most diverse regions. The range of products goes from Vishnu and Ganesha statues made of bronze or stannic to handcrafted, braided bags to traditionally painted picture frames and jewellery boxes. In addition, there is an own area for Thailand's famous cutlery: the Celadon. It is known for its delicate green or blue colour and the cups, plates and ashtrays are elaborately decorated with (golden) paintings - of course by hand. All products are packed securely and can be sent to Europe by request.
