Attractions in Chumphon province in Thailand

thai tour
 
 


Near the provincial capital, the southbound road splits into two, one following the south Gulf coast and the other branching over to the Andaman coast. Chumphon's port at Pak Nam is a convenient place to take a boat to Koh Tao, which is in Surat Thani but easier to approach from here. Yet visitors should not be too hasty to leave Chumphon's pretty coastline, as there are fine beaches and coral-ringed offshore islands both north and south of town.

Situated almost 500 km. south of Bangkok and nearly 200 km. north of Surat Thani, Chumphon, covering approximately 6,010 sq. km., is a tiny province with the important title of "Gateway to the South" of Thailand.
