The City of Angels
There are numerous cruises that take in Bangkok as one of the ports of destinations. Cruises visit Bangkok after docking at Laem Chabang on the east coast. Laem Chabang’s old laid-back charm remains, despite its rapid transformation into the country’s ‘Riviera’ - a major gateway for visiting cruise passengers. This tranquil region of fruit orchards, gem mines and oyster and orchid farms, is now also a great place for swimming, snorkelling and experiencing traditional Thai village life.
After a short stay you will head to Bangkok to experience the wonders of the city. Your time in Bangkok will depend on the cruise you are on and the best places to visit in a short space of time are the most famous ones.
Check out the gleaming Grand Palace or visit one of many of the ancient temples scattered around the city. If you are into shopping, find a market open and go bargain hunting or jump in a tuk-tuk and find an air controlled mega mall to buy brand names and exotic goods. If you stay in Bangkok for the night, check out the vibrant nightlife in R.C.A or Sukhimvit road.
With so much on offer, cruises to Bangkok are very popular so be sure to book early and get exactly what you wish for.
