About Travel to Chumphon

Chumphon, the provincial capital, is a small town with around 40,000 permanent residents.

About Chumphon City

During the day many of the streets in the town centre are crowded with trucks and cars picking up and dropping off produce from local farms. In the evening time the busiest part of the town is the Krumluang Chumphon Road, which runs south eastwards from the railway station, where food stalls sell fruit and authentic Southern Thai cuisine at very cheap prices.

The town has a small range of hotels, restaurants and bars and not much else of interest to tourists. The railway station will be of interest to train enthusiasts. It features some steam engines parked on the approach road and a long row of old fashioned wooden railway staff houses, which were once common in Thailand and are now fairly rare.

Beaches in Chumphon Province

Of more interest to visitors are the long and deserted beaches in the province, many of which are near the airport, in particular Hat Sai Ri and Hat Thung Wua Laen. Travellers looking for a quiet beach experience will be richly rewarded for renting a vehicle in Chumphon town and exploring the province’s 222 km long coastline.
