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.

The Chakrabongse
The four villas with rooms of different standards are located on a green and spacious area next to the Chao Phraya and a stone's throw away from the most important sights like the Grand Palace (five minutes by foot) or the Wat Arun (directly opposite on the other river side). Depending on your budget you choose between one of the four rooms of the B&B villa (starting from 100 euros including breakfast) or a more luxurious suite (starting from 250 euros) in the Thai House, the Riverside Villa or the Chinese House. The latter offers a comfort zone of special class: the suite consists of two double rooms, two bathrooms, a living room and two private terraces that offer a free view on the pool and the Chao Phraya. The interior: antique, Chinese furniture and doors, modern prints and exquisite fabrics. The perfect choice for two couples or a whole family. Cushioned loungers and white sun shades around the spacious and deep pool invite you to relax and the palms in the garden wave in the wind. Every now and then you hear a boat passing by. There's no more idyllic place in Bangkok - that might also be the reason why many newlyweds spend their honeymoons in the Chakrabongse Villas.

Victory Shopping
Most of the tourists see the Victory Monument passing by through the windowpane of the Sky-Train when they are on the way to the crowded Chatuchak weekend market. They don't know that they have just passed by a little shopping jewel. Around the Victory Monument those Thais go shopping who can't afford the popular markets and shopping centers - hence, the majority of the population. Here one can find women's clothing, accessories and shoes - offside the typical mass-produced goods. Many merchants sell their own designs. The chances of finding a special piece are consequently rather big. The best time to come is at sunset when the city has cooled down a bit and one can sit in front of a restaurant after a successful shopping tour. With the wooden benches, the little trees and the walled market stalls one can almost get a slightly European feeling - if there wouldn't be the almost ten-lane street around the Victory Monument.

Floating Market
The Taling Chan Floating Market is one of the three floating markets in Bangkok and the one that is most easily accessible from the city. Every weekend it's all about grilling, chatting and bargaining - on the water. You can easily imagine how life in Bangkok used to take place mostly on the Chao Praya and the many klongs in former times. The Taling Chan was established in 1987 to remind of these almost forgotten times - and on the occasion of king Bhumibol's 60th birthday. Already on the country way to the market there is one stall next to the other and the closer you get to the klong the more intensively the delightful smell of grilled fish and meat tickles your nose. You can hardly deny yourself from picking marinated shrimps on a spit at the first stall. Most restaurants contain a dining area on a wooden jetty and a longboat where the dishes are prepared. Most of the times you take your seat on the wavering floor at one of the low tables. If you have some time left you can book a boat tour at the small information desk at the entrance. A tour to the orchid farm costs approx. four euros for adults.

Ruen Urai
When the guest turns into this tiny soi he is within spitting distance of a completely different world. The Ruen Urai is part of the Rose Hotel and is located in an age-old Thai teakwod house. At the entrance the guests are asked to take off their shoes before they are guided by a traditionally dressed Thai to the second floor (make a reservation!) where teakwood tables provide for a private atmosphere. The view wanders outside and lingers on the lush green of the tropical garden. The noise and heat of Bangkok already seems to be far away. On the menu you mainly find Tai delicacies that can be recommended without exception. The prices are a little bit above average - however, it's absolutely justified considering the quality of the dishes and the wonderful atmosphere. In brief: the Ruen Urai is a must.
