Bangkok - Chumphon
Buses from Bangkok to Chumphon
There are several buses to Chumphon from Bangkok’s Southern bus terminal, based in the Thonburi district. Depending on traffic, it can take anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour to reach the bus terminal from the city center. The bus station is comfortable (with air conditioners) and has destination boards and timetables in English language.
There are two public bus stations in Chumphon. The main bus station (Southern Terminal) is based on Surat Thani Road, nearly 7 miles away from the town, and another one is based within the town. Typically, buses coming from Bangkok stop at the main bus station. From here, you can take a silver-colored minibus to reach your destination in the town.

Chumphon is the gateway to various islands and beach areas in Southern Thailand. Chumphon has a coastline of 200 kilometers and offers long, clean beaches with very less crowd. Chumphon is one of the few places that has managed to preserve its natural beauty and has not been affected so much by mass tourism.
