About Travel to Chumphon
Chumphon is best the connection point between the Thai railway network and ferry services to Koh Tao, which is well known for its beaches and scuba diving sites. If you are travelling from Sungai Kolok to Chumphon in order to travel to Koh Tao then you will need a spend a night in Chumphon before travelling onto Koh Tao the next morning. We recommend staying at hotel near the railway station, such as the reliable Euro Boutique Hotel on the Krumluang Chumphon Road, which is the road facing the approach road to the train station.
The excellent Lomprayah High Speed Ferry Company operates a twice daily combined bus and ferry service departing from the car park in front of Chumphon Railway Station which takes passengers all the way to the main ferry pier in Koh Tao in 2 hours 45 minutes, which is considerably faster than any of the other services from Chumphon to Koh Tao. All the ferry piers for services to Koh Tao are some distance from Chumphon city centre so if you want to make your own way to the ferry pier, rather than use a combine bus and ferry service, then you will need to book a taxi.
