The Real Thailand
CHUMPHON DISTRICT, THAILAND
First, let us present a video from Destination Thailand TV about the area. Then you can read a bit more about the plans and happenings in the Chumphon district:
Chumphon is about mid-way between Bangkok and Phuket. It is a coastal town which also has ferry to the famous islands of Koh Samui, Koh Phangan and Koh Tao and located in the Gulf of Thailand. It is only one hour by flight from the capital Bangkok, or about 5-6 hours by car on the freeway. The Coral Beach project is in the district of Phatio in Chumphon province.
Chumphon is a gateway to the other provinces in southern Thailand. It is divided into 8 districts and Ranong province in west, Thailand Gulf in the east, Hua Hin north and Surat Thani province in the south.
The area has numerous private hospitals of a good quality, great selection of restaurants (seafood is of the highest quality), Big C, Lotus, Home Mart, Macro, Ocean Shopping Mall, Night Market, Night Plaza and more.
The area has a comfortable level traffic that invites most of you who have a licence from home to drive a car or motorbike by yourself.
Both airport and downtown in Pathio is very close to where we have established our new paradise. 12 minutes to both centre and airport.
More than 200 km of coastline is studded with spectacular beaches. It has an abundance of attractions to offer for those seeking relaxation in a natural and calm atmosphere. Chumphon has not only beaches but also islands, mountains, waterfalls, mangrove forests and national parks. It is also a hub for boat transfers to the world famous dive centres at Koh Tao.
The government’s commitment in the area:
Efforts are also a big part from the authorities in this area. The airport is under construction to receive international traffic, and it will be built a huge airport hotel with 200 rooms nearby. The ferry that transports tourists to the islands of Koh Tao, Koh Phangan and Koh Samui which today is located in the city itself, is moved closer to the airport and also close to Coral Beach. Therefore it is also built several backpacker resorts in the area that will house them on its way out onto the islands. In addition, it is already developed brand new coastal road with bike paths, and there is a large marina for private yachts under development. It also has to be said that it will become a hub for private yachts, as there are extremely few of these marinas in Thailand. The government is running frequent campaigns to make this place more known for tourism, and at “our beach”, the Coral Beach, we will be able to regulate the number of tourists from entering, so it does not get too crowded. We are also investing in a mix of local and foreign tourists at Coral Beach, so it does not fall prey to mass tourism from the West.
