2017 EDITOR'S PICKS
Winding down our 14-night sailing of the Seabourn Food and Wine Cruise, we stopped at our last port of call, Laem Chabang, the gateway to Bangkok. A cargo ship terminal for the most part, Seabourn Sojourn was the only cruise ship in port that day. A complimentary shuttle took passengers to town on the half hour. We used that time to catch up on some photos collected along the way before an interesting performance by local musicians.
Laem Chabang is Thailand’s largest port, taking up 2,572 acres and capable of handing the largest vessels. Developed in 1988 to encourage taking advantage of the location’s close proximity to the Gulf of Thailand, Laem Chabang is the 22nd busiest container port in the world.
We would end the day sailing away from Laem Chabang with two full days at sea ahead cruising the Gulf Of Thailand and plenty of time to answer more reader questions, explore Seabourn Sojourn and recap the 2016 Seabourn Food And Wine sailing. Stay tuned for that.
