How to get to Bangkok from Chumphon

How to get from Chumphon to Bangkok

To get from Chumphon to Bangkok, you have your usual choice of a bus or a train. Buses are faster, but the main bus station which serves the capital is a bit far from the town. Trains are slower, but you have a good choice of seats and sleepers and the train station is located right in the centre of Chumphon.

From Chumphon to Bangkok by bus

There are two bus stations in Chumphon. The smaller one, which is located in the city itself, serves southern destinations like Hat Yai, Ranong or Phuket. A new, bigger Chumphon provincial transport station, from where buses to Bangkok depart, sits on Highway 4, some 14 km west of town. Note that there are no public transport which serves the new bus station, so you will need to arrange a taxi (about THB100).

There are a number of operators serving the route between Chumphon and Bangkok, including Suwannatee tour. Though the location of Chumphon bus station is really out of the way, you may still consider taking a bus instead of a train as buses bring you to the capital just in 6½ hours while trains take no less than 8½ hours. Suwannatee Tour offers three Bangkok-bound buses during the day, at 10am, 2pm and 10pm. All of them are Express buses with tickets just under THB400. Snacks and drinks are served on the way, there are toilets on board and air-conditioning. Note that the afternoon departure arrives to Bangkok at 8.20pm, and the last one – at 4.20am, so arrange accordingly.

In Bangkok, buses arrive to Sai Tai Mai, the Southern bus terminal, located in Thonburi district on the western banks of Chao Phraya. Numerous BMTA buses connect it with other parts of the capital, but it is not an easy task to figure out which one you need and not convenient if you travel with luggage. Consider taking a taxi instead to get to the city.

From Chumphon to Bangkok by train

Chumphon Train Station lies right in the centre of the city, northwest of Chumphon Night Bazaar. Trains from Chumphon to Bangkok leave throughout the day. Taking a train is the most comfortable way to travel, especially if you book a sleeper. Trains #174, #168 (8.25pm), #86 (9.10pm) and #84 (12.05am) each offer the most popular second class AC sleepers at around THB850-THB900. Be ready for a freezinf air-conditioner, though. If you do not want to risk your health, opt for a second class fan sleeper, which is a bit cheaper at THB650. There are 2nd class fan sleeper carts in #174 (7.30pm) and #168. All these trains take from 8½ hours to 9½ hours to reach Bangkok.

Then there are two trains which are the fastest from the bunch, #40 leaving from Chumphon at 12.45pm and arriving to Bangkok at 7.45pm, and #42, which departs at 10.45pm and arrives at 5.55am. There are second class AC seats only in both of them, so think twice before you book your 7-hour journey. If you are looking for the cheapest train ticket, consider a night train #168 which has second class fan seats only at THB500. And good luck for your lower back!

Should I make a stopover in Chumphon?

Chumphon is the transit point to the diving Mecca of Koh Tao, as well as the gateway to the south of Thailand, including both Ranong and Phuket. The overwhelming majority of the tour agencies and guesthouses in the city are geared towards providing travellers with onward ferry and transfer tickets. But besides giving you access to the islands of the gulf, Chumphon serves as a nice pit stop for backpackers who want to take a break from travelling. While there is actually not much to see and to do in the city itself, there are some pleasant and quiet beaches nearby, including Hat Sai Ree (20 km on 4119 and 4098) and a famous Hat Thung Wua Laen (16 km on 3108). The city is also a good spot for sightseeing with Chumphon National Museum displaying prehistorical artefacts found in the province and a handful of historical temples including Wat Pradoen and Wat Chao Fa Sala Loi. The nearby islands of Koh Maprao (permit for visiting is required), Koh Lava, Koh Thalu and the like which are great spots for diving and snorkelling close to coral reefs are not be disregarded either.

First-hand experience: a homestay or a coffee-roaster shop?

The majority of those who seek for budget accommodation in Chumphon end up checking in at Suda Guest House which is arguably the most popular place with backpackers and flashpackers who decide to stay overnight in the city. We were not so lucky, though, as on finding out that we had just arrived to the mainland from the islands and were heading backwards to Bangkok, the reception guy said that there were no more vacancy at Suda’s. Most probably he was cheating as a foreign couple who arrived a few minutes after us got a room – obviously because they were going to Koh Tao the next morning, and the owners planned to sell them a bus+ferry combo to the island.

If you happen to have the same problem, do not despair. Just one shop down the street from Suda’s there is a great place to experience Chumphon hospitality to its fullest. There is a small rest house, ingeniously called New Rest House. Basically, it is a rambling private house of local coffee-roasters with over 50 years in coffee-roasting business.

They offer two very primitive fan rooms with shared toilets outside, but the owners are so friendly and accommodating and the atmosphere of a real ‘living’ house is so relaxed, that you cannot help but fall in love with the place.

In the morning they brew their roasts for the guests and you can also have a look at a very primitive – but obviously efficient! – coffee-roasting machine they use. Local robusta is very toning up – take a chance to buy some to bring back home, even if the beans look too overroasted.

At 12Go our operators offer three types of service:

Cheap, Fast, Good - but you can usually pick only two of them!
Cheap & Fast won’t be Good. (e.g. buses from/to Khao San Road, local buses or 3rd class trains)
Cheap & Good won’t be Fast. (e.g. VIP trains in Thailand)
Fast & Good won’t be Cheap. (e.g. private limousine services, or VIP24 buses vs Express buses)

Make your choice! Please remember that though we are closely monitoring services, we are still an agency marketplace - meaning we focus on ticketing service and route availability / coverage rather than on factual seat recline angle you got today ^_^

★★★★☆ Aug 15, 2017 (train #170 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Perfect, de tickets lagen klaar op het station bij de Bali van de post in een ten naam gestelde envelop. Bed was schoon, personeel in de trein was vriendelijk en behulpzaam.

★★★★★ Aug 13, 2017 (train #174 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
It is a good company , going very smooth and organized. Highly recomendated.
★★★★☆ Aug 13, 2017 (train #86 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
A lovely way to travel for a really reasonable price. The UK rail system could learn something from the Thai rail system.
★★★★☆ Aug 11, 2017 (train #86 VIP Sleeper, Thai Railways) :
Travelled with my son in a first class sleeper. Very comfortable and enough space for an overnight trip. Staff friendly and helpful. Toilets were very unpleasant though.
★★★★☆ Aug 8, 2017 (train #86 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Nice and clean train. Pretty smooth ride to Bangkok, with little delay
★★★★☆ Aug 8, 2017 (train #86 VIP Sleeper, Thai Railways) :
Rooms is good. Beds are ok. Airco is so crazy cold that I cought a cold.
★★★★★ Aug 7, 2017 (train #40 Class II AC, Thai Railways) :
Very comfortable, British rail could learn a thing or two here!
★★☆☆☆ Aug 7, 2017 (train #168 Class II Sleeper Fan, Thai Railways) :
In our opinion, we were very overcharged for the traintickets. As we paid 1500 Tbh for two tickets, which both clearly showed to be only 400 Tbh each on the tickets itself. For the (minimal) service provided, this is too expensive.
★★★★★ Aug 2, 2017 (bus Express, Suwannatee) :
The trip was very comfortable. The best bustrip we had this month :). Bus was on time, seats were good and spacious. We received a drink and a cake and a short stay at a busstation inbetween. Good value for your money!
★★★★☆ Aug 1, 2017 (train #86 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Excellent Trip.
★★★★★ Jul 25, 2017 (train #84 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
The tickets we picked up at the train station were wrong (wrong date) so we had to pay 50 baht extra to change them. We would like a refund.
★★★☆☆ Jul 23, 2017 (train #86 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
The beds are good but the toilet and sink were not so clean... and I don't like it that they wake you up an hour before arrival (5:30 am!!!)
★★★★★ Jul 8, 2017 (bus Express, Suwannatee) :
Bus arrived 8 minutes early, they stowed our luggage very quickly and got us in the bus. The seats were very comfortable allowing you to recline very far and prop your legs up. We stopped to have food and buy some snacks. We hit traffic in Bangkok but it only added 30 minutes to our arrival time.
★★★★☆ Jul 4, 2017 (train #84 VIP Sleeper, Thai Railways) :
The sleepers are generally clean, however you have to be independent to seek for which one is your train and stay alert at all times upon it's arrival.
★★★★★ Jun 27, 2017 (train #86 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Everything was very smooth and organized. A ferry to a bus to a train and we never were confused about where to go or anything. Made a long travel day very stress free. And the beds on the night train are amazing! Thank you!!!
★★★☆☆ Jun 25, 2017 (train #84 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
12Go Asia was perfect with us. We were in touch before our trip and we get the tickets from its office without problems. However, train was so late and we can't charge our mobile phones.

★★★★☆ May 14, 2017 (train #86 VIP Sleeper, Thai Railways) :
Sleeping first class it is good, you get fresh blanket and bed sheet. The only problem is that air-con it at so low temperatures in comparison with outside temperatures that it is not ok. It is too cold for being in the cabin for 9 hours.
★★★★★ May 12, 2017 (train #86 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Lower beds so comfortable, nice temperature inside the train. Bed clothes clean. Great service.
★★★★☆ May 12, 2017 (train #86 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Overall good service with polite and friendly staff both at the station and on board. We were, however, asked to vacate our 'beds' 1.5 hours before arriving at our destination which seemed excessive

Tickets were waiting for us at the railway station at Chumphon; all was easy and great!
★★★★☆ Apr 11, 2017 (train #86 VIP Sleeper, Thai Railways) :
Was an enjoyable ride and easy to get some sleep. Is quite noisy and wouldn't be suited for children I would imagine. Also keep in mind, I am 6"1' and did not fit on the bed. I expected this but if you are much taller you would have real problems as I was wall to wall
★★★★☆ Apr 9, 2017 (train #86 VIP Sleeper, Thai Railways) :
I definately wouldnt call it first class on this train. The compartments were old and the wear and grime shows. That being said the staff was lovely and we actually slept relatively well so still rating at a 4.
★★★★★ Apr 7, 2017 (bus Express, Suwannatee) :
Those at the station were very helpful, the coach crew were great, will always travel by coach on every trip.

Thank you , Katrina
★★★★☆ Feb 23, 2017 (train #168 Class II Sleeper Fan, Thai Railways) :

Good sleep. Air con just appropriate - blankets for those who feel cold. Bed already set up when we board at Chumpon. Toilets are clean and sufficient for use.

Nikdo nás neokradl, navíc batoh s doklady můžete mít u sebe v posteli, měli jsme tam pro jistotu i krosny. Organizace v autobuse po cestě do přístavu a i na trajektech byla dobrá, zvlášť Lomprayah jsou opravdu dobře organizovaní a profesionální.

Rode VIP 1st class from Bangkok to Chumphon and back. Pleasant experience. Both departed within 10 minutes of scheduled time. Train is a bit old and noisy, but sleeper cabin had clean sheets and fresh blankets. Was able to get a little sleep - not sure if that would've happened in 2nd, definitely not in 3rd class. Don't expect "western 1st class" - but cannot complain for the price. Attendant was very helpful and friendly, same guy both times. Would do this again.

★★★☆☆ Nov 3, 2016 (train #86 VIP Sleeper, Thai Railways) :
It was less good than outbound journey. Some screws in the bed and ladder were loose and it rattled all night long making it far more difficult to sleep than first journey. Also found 2 baby cockroaches in the cabin. However - must stress that 12GoAsia - the agent provide a FANTASTIC and reliable service

Servicio 12go Asia perfecto, totalmente recomendable comprar a través de ellos! El tren es un tren Tailandés, os debéis hacer la idea antes de ir. Aún y así, en general muy bien, en este trayecto fuimos en First Class Sleeper AC. Puntual, baño limpio, camas cómodas y sábanas limpias. La única pega que le pongo es que había pequeñas cucarachas por el suelo... cosa normal creo yo. Te despiertan media hora antes de llegar y si al entrar al tren has pedido desayuno te lo traen a la cabina (no incluído en el precio, pasan cabina por cabina explicando como funciona y a enseñarte el menú). Recomendable llevar tapones para los oídos.

★★★★☆ Aug 30, 2016 (train #174 Class II Sleeper Fan, Thai Railways)
★★★☆☆ Aug 30, 2016 (train #86 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Good value for money, but consider the trip will be long, noisy and basic.
★★★★☆ Aug 27, 2016 (train #86 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
We enjoyed our trip. The beds were comfortable and big enough to sleep on. The train was about 30-40 minutes late, but mostly because of delays once we got inside the Bangkok area. It got kind of warm throughout the night because I think they turned off /down the AC. But overall it was s good experience
★★★☆☆ Aug 23, 2016 (train #86 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
I'm not mad that the train was 2 hours late. I'm mad that we were woken up at 6:30 am (eta if we had been on time) when we clearly weren't going to arrive until 8:30am (the time we would arrive with a 2 hour delay). Other than that, 12goasia was great and train was standard fare: beat up but serviceable, fine for sleeping, upper bunk kinda bright (bring mask), end berths get noisy (bring earplugs).

From Koh Tao to Bangkok. Good trip. Boat-bus-train perfectly on time. It's tricky, but it cost 1/3 than the flight samui-bkk.
★★★★★ Aug 21, 2016 (train #40 Class II AC, Thai Railways) :
Tickets easy to become at the train station, as instructed. Train on time, free meal (not bad at all), coffee tea and soft drinks. Seats on the train ok, but little space for western sized people. Good airco.
★★★★★ Aug 20, 2016 (train #84 Class II Sleeper AC, Thai Railways) :
Excellent. Was apprehensive about booking the tickets online when I read that the tickets had to be collected physically, but I was delighted to know that the tickets had been delivered on time, sealed in a neat plastic bag, enclosed within an envelope with my name clearly indicated on it. Train was on time, bed was comfortable (blanket was sealed within a plastic bag for sanitary purposes), had a nice window view, air-conditioning was working fine. An extremely pleasant experience, and will definitely use this service again!
