About Train Travel to Chumphon

Chumphon is medium sized town with a population of around 40,000 permanent residents. What the city lacks in tourist attractions it makes up for local culture. The streets fill up every day with small traders bringing in produce from surrounding area, which is largely dedicated to agricultural and fishing. Chumphon town itself has a museum and an interesting railway station, but not much else for foreign tourists, although the night market on the Krumluang Chumphon Road is one of the best places in Thailand to eat the traditional cuisine of Southern Thailand.

Southern Thai cuisine pulls no punches in terms of spice and sour tones, and you won’t really find the real thing in other parts of Thailand such as Bangkok as this unusual regional cuisine hasn’t really caught on in the rest of the country in the same way as North Eastern classic dishes such as som tam and sticky rice with grilled chicken. If this doesn’t appeal then try the excellent Papa Seafood near the train station or the Farang Bar on the Thatapao Road.

Chumphon Town is an offbeat destination and the main reason most foreign visitors come here is on route to and from the popular island of Koh Tao, which is known internationally for its very inexpensive diving courses. There are three ferry services all departing from out of town piers: the Lomprayah High Speed Ferry, Songserm ferry and the Night Boat. For more information about travel from Chumphon to Koh Tao click on the link in red.

Travellers looking for a more ‘off the beaten track’ experience should give the local national parks a go, and visit some of the excellent beaches on the Pathio Coast. These destinations are popular with Thai tourists, but less so with foreign visitors and there are few public transport options available. If you do decide to rent a vehicle, and you are adventurous in spirit, then we recommend visiting the following destinations:

  • The Mo Ku Chumphon National Park
  • Koh Thalu
  • Sairee Beach
  • Thung Wua Laen (Running Bull Beach)
  • Coral Beach
  • Ban Thong Tom Yai
