Flights to 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.

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.

Soi Cowboy
In Bangkok there are three central areas of the sinful world: Patpong, Nana Plaza and the Soi Cowboy with the latter being the most relaxed and socially compatible one. Of course also here there's one go-go bar next to the other with sparsely clothed Thais dancing around chromed poles. But: on this 200-metre-long, safe entertainment street you will be hardly annoyed by club promotors or aggressive ladyboys. Furthermore there are mainly tourists and expats including many women who want to catch a glimpse of the scene without going on the run with shocked eyes. It's best to stroll through the colourfully flashing soi, sit down on a table in front of a bar and watch the goings-on. Sometimes also a Thai with a little elephants runs past. If you have seen enough of the hurly-burly you quickly take a picture of the flashing cowboy at the street entrance and buzz off - subway and sky-train are only a few metres away.

Patpong Market
On the sidewalk every night hundreds of booths and cookshops pop up, behind them you see blinking signs of numerous Go-Go-Bars. The Patpong night market stretches out over several streets and attracts masses of bystanders, pleasure-seekers and bargain hunters. From 10pm onwards it's so crowded that getting through the narrow Sois is almost impossible and the atmosphere starts to boil. The area may be safe, nevertheless you should leave the DSLR camera in the hotel and only take sums of money with you that you really want to spend. You never know. Most sellers offer forgeries of bags, watches, clothes and DVDs but before you buy anything you should get an overview of the huge range, to get a closer look at the quality of the mock Gucci-handbag or the Rolex-replica. And then you bargain. Only when the original price is reduced by half you pay an - more or less - adequate price. It is also recommended to make a real leather-test with a lighter. When the merchant gets nervous the iPad-sleeve is probably plastic after all.

Hansar Hotel
Le Méridien, Peninsula and Co. should pay attention: The brand new Hansar is a fantastic luxury hotel in Bangkok. The offerings are sumptuous and after the low-priced opening, the prices for a suite are levelling off at the standard of the neighbouring Four Seasons, although the reception very often provides the guests with free upgrades. The whole house is kept in calm earth tones, there is a spacious, wooden terrace with enough lying surfaces along the (relatively flat) pools and on the rooftop there is a second patio for festivities - and breathtaking photos. The rooms are all classy and elegant with unusual treats to look at. Lusciously green wall-gardens and comfortable carpet floors instead of the usual wooden ones are in all rooms. In addition, the mini-bar is free, just like the high speed Internet. The suites with view on the Royal Bangkok are perfectly suitable to unwind after an exciting day.
