THAILAND

Expect a warm welcome when your Holland America Line ship calls in Thailand, the “Land of Smiles.” Laem Chabang leads you to Bangkok with its Grand Palace and Emerald Buddha Temple. Explore ancient Ayutthaya — a UNESCO World Heritage Site — or get a hands-on Pad Thai lesson while helping disadvantaged youth. Holland America Line also cruises to Nathon on Koh Samui, where you can ride elephant-back through the jungle, gaze at a 40-foot golden Buddha, and plant yourself on powdery Chewang Beach.

In Partnership With

Laem Chabang (Bangkok), Thailand

Thailand is the only country in Southeast Asia never to have been colonized by a European power. Its capital, Bangkok, reflects the country's unique status. It has embraced modernity on its own terms. Buddhist temples and gilded palaces coexist with the bustle of one of Asia's major metropolises.
In Partnership With

Phuket, Thailand

Thailand's largest island sits just off the country’s west coast, in the glittering Andaman Sea. Phuket offers both cultural attractions and natural beauty.
