An overview of our shore excursions for travellers arriving to Thailand by cruise ship.
The nearest port is at Khlong Toey. It's very near to the city and it's possible to do a day trip and stay overnight on your ship. As it's a river port, only the smaller cruise ships, such as the ships from Azamara, Oceania, and Silversea will dock here.
The deep sea port for the larger cruises is in Laem Chabang. This port is mostly used for ships from Celebrity Cruises, Holland America Line, Seabourn, Princess Cruises, P&O, and Norwegian Cruise Line. It is more than 2 hours from downtown Bangkok and is too far for single day tours. We only organize two or three day programs which start and finish at this port, where it's required to stay overnight in central Bangkok.
We normally organize private tours, but for shore excursion we do accept bookings by groups formed on the CruiseCritic roll call forums. If you like to know possibilities, kindly use the Ask a question form on the shore excursion that you like to do, please include dates/timing of your cruise. We will then inform further details and connect you to the contact person if there are groups being formed.
For cruise travellers arriving in Laem Chabang who would like to do a tour for one day only, we kindly ask you to book the shuttle bus with the cruise company into central Bangkok. We will organise a nice tour for you which starts and finishes at the bus stop. You can book the tours under the tour category "Private tours" which shows a list of all tours that we organize with start and finish in central Bangkok.

This tour to the railway and floating markets starts and finishes at Khlong Toey port in Bangkok. A great way to experience Thai farmers' way of life through local markets. A trip to a unique “railway market” where sellers rush to fold the roof over their stalls and pack up their goods every time a train passes through. When possible we visit the traditional Tha Kha market, one of the hidden gems around Bangkok. This market opens once every 4-5 days depending on moon phases. Then, we visit the floating market in Damnoen Saduak, a daily market highly popular among tourists.
