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.

Red Sky
This bar on the 55th level illuminates the sky with red colours: the name - Red Sky! The surrounding hotel, Centara Grand in the Convention Center of the business district in Bangkok is one of the largest within the Asia-Pacific region given its 505 luxury suites.   Rooftop bars are popular in Bangkok, the view on the city from the Red Sky bar of Central World is special however. Maybe because of the red sign which equips the locations with a romantic touch. Maybe it's also the thick windows that protect you from the wind - which is quite essential considering the height. But probably it's the view - racetrack, Chao Phraya and downtown Bangkok! First up the narrow stairs, afterwards right onto the lounge chairs and the city's bustle is far away - 55 storeys below.   On the plate: lobster and goose liver pâté. Possibly you won't see them that good because of the dimmed light. Try it out though!

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 (150 Euros) 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.

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.

Flower Market
One can already smell it when the boat stops at the Memorial Bridge. The Pak Khlong Talat flower market is located on the Chao Phraya and has existed since the reign of Rama I. However, back then the flowers, fruits and vegetables were sold out of the boats. Today the salesmen have solid ground under their feet and probably one of the most beautiful working places in the city.   The market is overwhelming with all its exotic magnificence, the intense scent and the rich diversity of flowers and tends to let the visitor almost forget that the temperature is about 35° C in the shade at a humidity of around 90 per cent. Even though the Pak Khlong Talat is open continuously - a visit is possible anytime - one should try to be there at sunrise. At this time the boats land with a fresh delivery from the province and the retailers of the city stock up with the daily requirement.   And don't forget the camera! By the way: One bunch of 50 roses, rolled up in newspaper, costs only one Euro, orchids a bit more. And the salesmen can also pack the flowers suitably for a flight.
