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.

Stay in Bangkok

Stay in Bangkok
The Eugenia
If a decorated elephant would turn around the corner, it wouldn't be surprising. After all, one feels like in Siam (Thailand's former official name) a hundred years ago.   The twelve suites (starting from 165 Euros a night) are in colonial-style. They are admittedly rather small, but they convince with authentic furniture: Under one's feet dark, shiny floors are creaking, on the little tables there are real antiques and one won't even want to get out of the linen tester beds - except you want to take a bath in the handcrafted copper bathtub. The books in the library radiate the scent of bygone times, and the pool under the palms is very attracting. In the meanwhile, the elegant restaurant is filled with Bangkok's gourmets who arrive with their old Jaguars and shiny Mercedes.   But: Despite the price, do not expect all comforts of an ordinary, modern luxury hotel in the style of a Marriott or Peninsula! The Eugenia has the kinks of an old lady. But this is exactly what makes it so charming.

Shopping in Bangkok

Shopping in Bangkok
Tha Prachan
The historic market in Old Town brings an extraordinary charm with it. Even though it is near the Grand Palace, one will hardly see any tourists. The local shops and little stalls have very often been in the same family for generations. And it fits the offer: Different than on many Thai markets, there are hardly any mass-produced goods around the Moon-Pier, as it would be called in English. Instead, there are antique coins, Moroccan lamps, bronze figures, vintage-jewellery, Buddhist amulets and talismans.   The Thai Sompong lies his cards onto a little, shaky table, a few meters away an old hippie wearing a dozen pearl necklaces shows his jewellery proudly, and on the end of the street pendants made of boar tushes have been sold for over 40 years. One thing is certain though: On Tha Prachan you can find a souvenir which is out of the ordinary and which you will want to keep for yourself at the end.

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.

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.
