About Travel to Chumphon Railway Station


Chumphon is not a popular tourist destination, but it is a transport hub and plenty of foreign and domestic tourists travel to Chumphon on route to or from other more popular parts of Thailand. In particular, Chumphon is the connection point between the upper part of Thailand’s west coast and its railway network.

Chumphon Town

Chumphon is a small city with around 40,000 permanent residents. The city is less developed than other Thai cities closer to Bangkok. The main industries in Chumphon Province as a whole are agriculture and fishing and Chumphon City is very much a ‘market town’ where local produce and seafood is traded.

There is little for tourists to do or see in Chumphon City. It has no major tourist attractions. It is, however, one of the best places in Thailand to experience the unique culture and cuisine of Southern Thailand. The night market on the Krumluang Chumphon Road is an excellent place to try a wide range of Southern Thai dishes that are rarely offered in restaurants in other parts of Thailand.

Chumphon has a small number of hotels and restaurants catering to the needs of foreign visitors. The Fame Tour restaurant and the Euro Boutique Hotel are popular choices for international visitors to the city.
