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.

Where to shop 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.

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.

Spring
The rundown buildings along the grey and bumpy road that leads to the restaurant abandon any hope of a romantic evening in a relaxed atmosphere. But then the Spring appears between a row of houses. A warm light shimmers through the large windows and a group of stylish expats and Asians are lounging  in huge pillows in the garden in front of the restaurant. Authentically Thai? Probably not, but it's quiet and green for sure - and the best place for leaving the busy city behind and cuddling with your date while watching the stars. The Western touch is also reflected in the bill. The international dishes are good, but no extraordinarily gustatory explosion. The spring is especially a location for urban people who want to ease up and then stop by the popular Enchanted Bar (Sukhumvit Soi 55/J Avenue). You have to make a reservation there as well, otherwise you may face the same situation as facebook-founder Marc Zuckerberg, who stopped by the bar but didn't get a seat anymore.

What to see in Bangkok

What to see in Bangkok
Grand Palace
When you see the travel buses in front of the entrance you'll immediately want to turn around again and stroll through the Old Town instead. But for this experience it is worth while waiting in line, for what you get to see in the huge area (200.000 square meters) is truly amazing. Altogether there are more than 100 buildings in different architectural styles behind the almost 2-kilometer-long wall (tenements, temples, ministries, palaces etc.), also including the Wat Phra Kaeo. This temple is home to Thailand's most revered statue, the emerald Buddha. For at least getting a general insight into the exciting history of this important landmark you should consider a guided tour. These are offered in English, are for free and start daily at 10.00, 10.30, 13.30 and 14.00. Important: there's a strict dress code: with flip-flops, shorts and co you'll have to stay outside. Right next to the entrance (on the right-hand side) you can borrow adequate clothing for free. Admission for non-Thais: 6 Euros.
