Vienna draws many thanks to its charm and rich historical heritage, as well as its exceptional qualities, making it an ideal place to work, travel and live. This year also marks the 150th anniversary of the Vienna World’s Fair, a fitting time to celebrate the historic event and the city’s accomplishment as the world’s most livable city. The Vienna World’s Fair opened in 1873 and laid the foundations for a city popular with tourists. The first fair saw a boom in new hotels, cafés and restaurants, many of which still exist today and comprise some of the city’s finest establishments, including Hotel Imperial, Palais Hansen Kempinski Vienna, and Café Landtmann.

Vienna boasts beautiful vineyards dotting the landscape, many existing for generations boasting  important wine-growing traditions. Visitors can taste locally produced wines and learn about the history of winemaking in the region. Coffee lovers are also drawn to Vienna thanks to its coffee house culture, now an emblem of the city’s identity. Vienna’s traditional coffee houses allow visitors to enjoy a cup of aromatic coffee while engaging in lively conversations in a warm and intimate atmosphere. The city’s coffee houses are so important to Viennese culture that they now appear on the UNESCO list of intangible cultural assets.

Vienna’s commitment to the arts through numerous galleries, museums and music venues is another reason the city ranks high among visitors and locals. The city hosts world-class exhibitions, performances and events throughout the year, allowing all to immerse themselves in different cultures.

Amansara Review

It was more than a car journey; it was a transition between worlds. At our first hotel in Siem Reap, huge coaches constantly pulled up outside the lobby to deposit or receive international tour groups; we departed in very different style, in a 1965 black Mercedes limousine once owned by King Sihanouk. The mundanities of mass tourism were left behind. We progressed through the chaotic Cambodian streets in regal comfort and soon arrived at a solid gate.
