Guide to Cruise Ports and Terminals
The cruise port that serves Bangkok and Pattaya is called Laem Chabang. It is located over two hours southeast of Bangkok Thailand.
The cruise terminal has a few shops. There is also a small shopping mall located nearby called Harbor Mall. Because Port Chabang is Thailand's main deep sea port, the area around the terminal is mostly industrial.
Cruise lines sometimes provide a shuttle service to Pattaya, but normally not Bangkok.
The city of Bangkok is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world. Unfortunately, due to the distance from the port and the heavy traffic in Bangkok, we recommended that you arrange transportation directly from your cruise line.
Pattaya is popular beach resort that is popular with foreigners. It is located approximately 30 minutes south of Port Chabang and can be accessed by taxi.
