Chumphon Beach

hi guys after planing our stay in koh samui i am thinking again as i have heard that koh samui is expensive place to stay, we are after a nice beach and a sea we can swim in, any advise would be great.i have read that it is boring after 4 day in Chumphon so thats what got my thinking about here, no girly bars, no tourist trap, and i have to say the pic of the beaches look great and snorkeling to. so prices on renting something ok nothing flash, 1 bedroom, kitchen, scooter rental or by one as they 6 months close as possible to the beach.

Cheers guy

I spent 3 Months at Thungwuallaen Beach... It's about 20 minutes outside Chomphom city There are lots of Bungalows and houses to rent and the Beach is Very nice and clean... There are also some good restaurants. The baht bus goes to Chomphon city and is 30 baht and you can rent motor bikes there as well... It is Much nicer than Samui.. I live on Samui for 19 years... Go there and Enjoy

Nice and quite, like Fisherman's village on Samui pre 2000.

No girlie bars.

No Tesco, BigC, Makro, so must shop from local stores at higher prices.

Restaurants and bars and hotels are the same prices as Samui.

No taxis, but a friend of mine got scammed renting a bike.

Nice for a weekend holiday for me.

Yes, the stores are in Central Chumpon.

For me it's very close on Samui as I live in Chaweng.

I compared Thung Wua Laen Beach vs. Chaweng beach.

Nice for a short holiday, recommended.

It is only 20 minute at the most my motor bike.... I did it every week to go shopping also Big C, Tesco and they have a great open air market also...

Much nicer and Cheaper than Samui... No Mafia Jerks and Taxi rip offs. and the locals are Friendly... Unlike samui..... and so are the Falang... There are some nice beach bare with out the girly's

Go and Enjoy

I am Not on Samui anymore.... There are still some nice places and nice people on Samui but i have had more than my share...I moved there 25 years ago and it has changed so much and for the worse In My opinion.

I will be back to Thung Wua Laen Beach and will most likely buy land there...
