Bangkok, Thailand Overview

A mirror of Venice in Asia, this "City of Angels" is a bustling place with a maze of extensive waterways constantly in motion. In between the office towers and royal palaces are beautiful parks, boulevards and gardens. Bangkok is a city with more than 400 Buddhist temples. The most famous of these is the Temple of the Emerald Buddha, containing a statue carved from a single piece of jade. Gaze at one of Bangkok's best known landmarks, Wat Arun, the Temple of the Dawn. Spend time in the city's oldest and biggest monastery, Wat Pho, where you'll be awed by its famed Reclining Buddah. Shoppers will enjoy the excitement of the floating markets.

Nothing to see within walking distance from port but we managed to get a local taxi outside port entrance at 300 bhat to nearby harbour mall shopping centre which is 10min drive. Shuttle services to Bangkok and Pattaya are available but are not cheap.

Laem Chabang is such a long way from anywhere but we took an excursion to see the Tigers & they did not disappoint. Also saw elephant & crocodile shows. Didn't like the traffic

We organized our own private guide and excursions over the 1.5 days while in port. A few interesting sights but after a while get "templed" out. Trip to floating market and train . market interesting if one can tolerate many many tourists. Advantage of ship size is it was able to get close to city center vs being docked 1.5 hrs or so further away, having to fight the horrible Bangkok traffic. We strongly recommend the Siam theatre show which we did on our own and surprisingly was not on the offered ship excursions. ( a little pricy though at about USD $65)

The two hour bus trip in to the city from the port and then back again is something to consider Sight seeing was amazing to see the culture and the temples But it can be very crowded at the more popular place
