About Travel to Chumphon
Most tourists travelling by train to Chumphon are on route to Koh Tao, which is a small island in the Gulf of Thailand famous for its local diving sites and inexpensive diving trips and courses.
Travel to Koh Tao
Direct joint bus and ferry services to Koh Tao depart from the car park in front of the entrance to Chumphon Railway Station. The fastest services from Chumphon to Koh Tao are the day time services operated by the Lomprayah High Speed Ferry Company, which take 2 hours 45 minutes to travel from Chumphon Railway Station to Koh Tao. Lomprayah High Speed Ferry services to Koh Tao depart from Ao Thung Makham Noi Pier, which is 27 km by road to the south of Chumphon. Travellers can also take a slow boat to Koh Tao which sails overnight, although we don’t recommend these overnight ferry services for children or older people as the conditions onboard can be uncomfortable.
Chumphon itself is a small town with no major points of interest for foreign visitors. There is, however, a night food market on the Krumluang Chumphon Road which is a great place to try authentic Southern Thai style cuisine at very low prices. To the north of Chumphon, closer to the airport than the town, there are also some notable beaches such as Hat Sai Ri and Hat Thung Wua Laen. Chumphon Province has 222 km of coastline most of which is underdeveloped and, for the adventurous traveller with their own transport, offers the opportunity to enjoy virtually deserted beaches.
