Hi
u can go to Southern bus station, or get coach from Kaosan road, or u can rent taxi to get there. At Chumporn u can buy bus ticket to major southern province of Thailand. Or can go to agency.
At Kaosan, ticket is cheaper and they sell to foreigner only.
let check bus ticket (if public bus) at http://www.thaiticketmajor.com/index_th.php

Why not just take the overnight train from Hualumphong Station to Chumphon? They arrange a car from Chumphon to Phuket, or take the bus.

Travel Tips for Chumphon

Road manners - showing respect to a shrine

by wondersF

Most Thais are Buddhist and they are fairly serious about their religious practices. Around the country, it is customary to have small shrines erected by the roadsides to bless road users. To jive in with this practice, passer-bys would paused momentarily and clapped their hand together to show their respect and gratitude.

What about those driving pass? It would hinder their journey as the vehicle would bound to pass by many of such little shrines all the way. Motorist came up with a short cut and an ingenious way -they hooted their horns to acknowledge as they passed by without stopping or slowing down.

A short distance from the junction just north of Chumphon during the past several trips, I noticed that this act. The road was the busy Highway 4, and the shrine located right at a small bend. Imagine vehicles passing by at high speed and negotiating a bend. It was an endless stream of horning from vehicles on both sides of the road.

This trip, I noticed the shrine upgraded and the highway slightly straighten with parking bays along the road, the stretch after passing the shrine.
Of course the new facilities also came with rest stop and new rows of fruit stalls. That explain the upgrading of the shrine as more stoppage also increased the amount of donations.

For those who had made the stop, the keeper of the shrine was also well organized to tap that opportunity. Bundle of joss stick with incense papers for burning, and something I never saw before - they also have gold foil for sale. These expensive stuff would be pasted on the Buddha or Elephants statues as offerings. Couldn't understand how donations were eventually translated but with the offering completed, this ritual ended with the releasing a burst of fire crackers.

This is a basic package offered at Bahts 40. Then there are various sizes of fire crackers available as alternatives.
Our devotees carefully depositing the gold foil on the arm of Buddha. It was particularly interesting for me.

The custom of the continuous sounding of the horns was then replaced by the sporadic sounding of the fire crackers. Or was it both? Many stopped but not all. They who didn't stop would continued the old practice of using the horn.

Probably worth longer than I spent.

"A very quick visit."

Chumphon, variously spelt Chumporn and Chumpon, would seem to be mainly visited by tourists as a jumping off point for the nearby islands of Ko Tao, Ko Samui and Ko Phangan and I must admit I fell into this trap. Having travelled South from Prachaup Khiri Khan, I was anxious to be on my way and only spent one evenng there, hence the paucity of tips.

However, as some of my old rugby playing friends would say having made a horrendously late tackle, "Never a wasted journey" and I did have the privelege of watching an absolute masterclass in Southeast Asian cookery. I love cooking and this really made for a wonderful night (see restauant tip).

So, not much I can tell you about this place except that it probbly deserves much more time than I gave it.

The photograph shows the pier where most tourists head very quickly.

Wattham Kwan Muang, Chumphon, Thailand

by jarotsawan

"A place for mind practice and meditation"

If you are finding yourself, here is a place that I recommend 'Wattham Kwan Muang', Amphur Sawee, in Chumphon Province, Thailand. It is a Buddhist temple (Hinayana), that help teach about mind practice and meditation (pure way, no magic). No cost required for accomodation and meals.

"How to get to Wattham Kwanmuang"

The address of the temple is:
130/2, Moo 4, Tambon Napo, Amphur Sawee, Chumphon Province. You may travel from Bangkok by a bus (Suwannatee tour or Choke Anan tour) running between Bangkok-Chumphon 3 times a day, everyday. The bus station is called ' Sai Tai' (south-route station). You may get to the bus station by taxi.

"Around the temple"

There are many kinds of beautiful trees and flowers around the temple. Very peaceful place.
