Introduction to Chumphon
Koh Talu
Koh Talu
Chumphon is a city at the Central Gulf Coast of Southern Thailand. Like Surat Thani, most people only stay here in transit going between Bangkok and the southern parts, including the islands inside the Gulf of Thailand.

Chumphon Province is located in the most upper part of Southern Thailand. It is known as the gateway to the southern border towns. Chumphon has been able to maintain plenty of natural resources for tourism which have been untouched by the tourists and unspoiled by the time. Chumphon is an elongated province with 220 kilometers (137 mi) of coastline offering many fine-sand beaches and attractive offshore islands. There are plenty of opportunities for sunbathing, swimming, yachting, paragliding, diving and snorkeling.
