Port Laem Chabang (Bangkok) cruise port

Port Laem Chabang (locode THBKK) also serves as one of the major stops on the coastal highway linking Pattaya and Bangkok through Sukhumvit Road.

In 2017, for the first time ever, Port Laem Chabang became homeport for a premium cruise ship. Costa Cruises (Costa Asia) had here the company's first-ever turaround/homeporting season with the 2400-passenger liner Costa Victoria. The ship was based here in January 2017 for roundtrip itineraries around the Thailand Gulf. The ship arrived on January 11, 2017, from Singapore. Until January 25th, Costa Victoria operated 3x 4-night itineraries visiting Koh Samui Island, Sihanoukville Cambodia and Phu Quoc Island Vietnam. Followed a 4-night relocation cruise to Shanghai (China).

Also in 2017, Star Cruises (GHK-owned brand) announced a new Laem Chabang homeport deployment for SuperStar Gemini, scheduled between December 17, 2017, and April 27, 2018. During its homeporting, SuperStar Gemini operated a roundtrip 3-night / 4-day itinerary visiting Sihanoukville and Ko Samui (Sunday departures), 2-night / 3-day itinerary to Sihanoukville (Wednesday departures) and 2-night / 3-day itinerary to Koh Kong Island (Friday departures).

Bangkok's two international airports combined serve 85+ million passengers annually. This makes Port Laem Chabang a perfect destination for fly-cruises and exotic cruisetours.
