The new location of Chiang Saen Port

Due to the location of the present Port is too small, Maritime Department has been assigned for feasibility study  of  the new location for  Chiang Saen Port.  The primary study shows that the port will be moved to the south about 10 Km. with area around 400 rai, bigger than present about 40 times.  The location is in Mae Nam Kok estuary, not adjacent to the bank of Mekong River.  The construction is designing.  The new Chiang Saen Port will consist of:

  1. 6 berths which are loaded by manpower
  2. 9 berths which are loaded by conveyer belt
  3. 6 container terminal
  4. 1 petroleum berth
  5. 6 passenger berth

The new Chiang Saen Port will be a important port for trading in this region between Thai and China.  The new Chiang Saen Port will be the gateway for import-export from South China and  a linkage for modal transport from China – Bangkok – Laem Chabang Port.
