Chumphon Thailand

Chumphon, Thailand

Chumphon city is the capital of the coastal province of the same name.

Not too many people outside of Thailand have heard of this fairly large, beautiful city. However, the famous SF author Robert Charles Wilson used this city as a backdrop in one of his novels, The Chronoliths.

Why would a Canadian author want to use a small city as a setting for his novel? The answer is simple, really. This city has a lot to offer, and we here at the New Nordic Group are more than happy to partake in the development of Chumphon.

Where is Chumphon?

The city is located on the coast of the Gulf of Thailand, about 288 miles south of Bangkok. It is the capital of the Chumphon province, which borders Myanmar in the northwest.

Because of its tropical monsoon climate, it’s relatively hot throughout the year. If you plan on going there during October or November, bear in mind that those months see the most rainfall.

According to the 2015 census, Chumphon city has a population of over 35,000 residents. This population number doesn’t make the city huge. However, it’s just big enough to be the perfect tourist location for curious travelers from around the world.
