Chumphon is a city located in the central Gulf coast of Thailand. It is a convenient and very common place to stop for travelers going to and from the southern regions/islands of Thailand to Bangkok. The city itself does not have a lot of entrancement, but its location makes it a very good pit-stop for a night or two. Chumphon is very easy to reach either by train; by bus; and, if you are coming from Bangkok, even by plane.

As it isn't a tourist trap, Chumphon still has its natural and beautiful look; in fact, the countryside around the town and some of the beaches on the coastline are still untouched by mass tourism, which makes it very unique and precious in a way (depending on what you are looking for).

If you stop in Chumphon enough time to explore the area, you should definitely venture toward the close by beaches like Thung Wua Laen, Pha Nang Tak Bay, or even Koh Son Beach. They are reachable by tuk tuk, local songthaews or by renting a motorbike/scooter. There are many other activities to do in the area like night fishing, jungle trekking, and rafting, mostly organized by local tour agencies or by your Chumphon hostel or hotel.

Very close by the train station, on Krom Luang Road, there is a local night market. It is not very big but it has a wide variation of delicious Thai food for any taste -- in fact, it is always busy with locals buying their dinners, which is always a good sign! There isn't a wide selection of places to stay in Chumphon -- there are hotels and resorts, and for the budget travelers, there are very few cheaper options as guesthouses and hostels in Chumphon.
