A tourism rep told Pattaya Update News that visits of luxury cruise liners to Laem Chabang deep sea port would add to the area’s tourism potential. 

The Thai media reported that since the start of the year ships and lines like Diamond Princess, Sapphire Princess, TUI and Holland America Line MS Westerdam had put into Laem Chabang.

Attaphon Thaweesunthorn of the Pattaya Tourism Authority of Thailand said that shops, restaurants and nearby businesses would all benefit. 

He said that some people on the ships would come ashore on trips organised as part of packages offered by the shipping lines and this was more good news for the tourism industry. 

Each ship has in excess of 5,000 passengers and crew said the media in its report. They also quoted an unnamed guide saying upbeat things about the ships’ visits since the start of the year. 

However, Thaivisa notes that, conspicuous by its absence, was any mention that those on the ships would go so far as to visit Pattaya while ashore.
