Thailand Cruise Highlights

City Life in Bangkok

In Bangkok, life is vibrant, welcoming, eclectic, and chaotically exciting. Take in the sights via a canal tour and watch traditional puppeteers re-enact ancient folklore tales. Wander through the massive Chatuchak Market to browse and shop for handmade clothes, spices, crafts, and Thai fabrics. Enjoy a drink high in the sky on the 63rd floor of the State Tower, a skyscraper topped with a lavish dome, and take in panoramic views of the glittering city skyline. 

Ancient Buddhist Temples

On cruises to Thailand, you’ll have the opportunity to see some of the most revered and ancient temples and Buddhist holy sites anywhere in Asia. Thailand is home to around 33,,000 active temples including the massive and ornate Wat Arun in Bangkok which lights up the skyline at night. Take a trip up Nakkerd Hill in Phuket to see the famous Big Buddha statue that looks over the city. For a more rustic experience, visit the terracotta-hued Wat Ratcha Thammaram in Ko Samui which pays homage to legendary sea monsters and ancient Buddhist warriors.

White Sand Beaches

When visiting Thailand, don’t miss world-renowned beaches like Maenam in Ko Samui, with over four miles of unspoiled, silky white sand underneath your feet. Try a surf class or snorkeling adventure in the bright blue waters of Kata Noi Beach in Phuket. Take a day trip to Pattaya from Bangkok, where you’ll find a lively entertainment scene, plenty of watersports, and great local beach restaurants where you can sample fragrant Thai dishes.

Thailand Cruise Ports


The brilliance of Bangkok isn’t just in its size, but rather how much just one city can offer when it comes to food, nightlife, history, and cultural highlights. Don’t miss a chance to see the Reclining Buddha at Wat Pho, a golden statue measuring over 150 feet long, and 50 meters tall. Tour the city’s famous sites via canal boat, or drift along the Chao Phraya river past intricate temples. Take a Thai cooking class then enjoy some of Bangkok’s best views with a martini at the rooftop bar at Vertigo atop the Banyan Tree hotel during your overnight stay. 

Ko Samui

Ko Samui’s famous beaches draw travelers looking for a complete, tropical island escape while still enjoying an upbeat local Thai culture and plenty of activities. Have an adventure on a 4x4 jungle safari tour to see some of the best sites like Namuang Waterfall, Mummified Monk, and Buddha’s Magic Garden, all in one day. Or take it easy on the calm shores of Maenam Beach, where you can lunch on Thai specialties with your toes in the sand.


On the mountainous island of Phuket, you’ll find palm-shaded, white sand beaches, adventurous jungle treks, and rich Thai heritage and traditions. Take a boat tour through some of the limestone islands in Phang Nga Bay where you can explore caves, mangroves, and rock formations that jut straight out of the turquoise-colored water. Browse for art and local handicrafts at the colorful shophouses in Phuket’s Old Town then visit the nearby Jui Tui Shrine, famous for its three ornate altars that pay homage to Chinese gods. 

Thailand Cruise Itineraries

Cruises to Thailand depart from either Hong Kong, Bali or Singapore, combining the buzz of big cities with the tranquility of laid-back tropical islands. You’ll typically visit six ports throughout Southeast Asia, with stops in Vietnam, Malaysia, and Indonesia as well as the “Land of Smiles”. Thailand cruises sail between November and March, when the weather is finest, and include three or four days at sea to relax and enjoy the ship.
