Thailand

Thailand
The Kingdom of Thailand, formally known as Siam until 1939, is the 50th largest country in the world, almost equal to that of Spain. The climate here is generally associated with that of the tropics, making it hot and humid all year round. The main language spoken is Thai, although there are many regional dialects. English however is spoken and understood around most of Thailand. Traveling around Thailand is made easy by means of air, bus, and rail to beautiful locations such as Phuket or even the capital Bangkok. One famous location is that of Phi Phi Ley, featured in the blockbuster movie "The Beach". Here you will find pristine beaches with white sand and crystal blue waters, surrounded by limestone cliffs. A definite must see, and what better way to get there than to fly with Austrian Airlines to Thailand and explore the many treasures they have to show.

Platinum Mall
The Platinum Fashion Mall is the biggest of its kind in Bangkok. The 2.000 shops on seven floors primarily offer fabrics and accessories - for wholesalers who come in buses and trucks and pack goods in masses in order to distribute them on Thailand's markets. Many locals find: why push and shove in the heat from booth to booth if you can find the bigger selection at a better price in the air-conditioned Platinum? The result: meanwhile not only wholesalers buy in the mall but half of Bangkok. The shops have adapted to the new target group, and thus it is also possible to buy single products although price reductions are granted only to larger quantities. It is therefore worth while to buy several products in a shop, they don't have to be the same style - it's only about the quantity of the products purchased. A big disadvantage with cheap shopping: the clothes can't be tried on. In addition, the selection of sizes is very limited. As a tall European woman you should therefore fill the shopping bag rather with jewelry than with T-shirts that possibly turn out to be too small in the end.

Phranakorn Hotel
No matter what time you arrive in the Phranakorn Nornlen - and be it in the middle of the night, a welcome with a nice smile is always there. The big plus of this little boutique hotel are the many green areas, terraces and wells as well as the staff which will become a second family in no time. The rooms are simple and in some cases small (starting from 36 Euros), but they are decorated lovingly and with much creativity - and the breakfast tastes fantastic, especially the traditional Thai-tea. On the small roof there is a little terrace with a vegetable garden (the crop serves for the breakfast) where one can relax. The little tables of the comfortable bar on the first floor look directly at a big Buddha statue. Overall, the Phranakorn Nornlen is a low-priced and heartwarming alternative to anonymous hotel chains. Five-star comfort, however, should not be expected. The beds, for instance, are relatively hard as is usual in Thailand, but the staff provides the guests gladly with additional blankets. Besides, there is always a masseuse at service.

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!

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.
