We had 5 hours to kill till our sleeper train to Malaysia, and a friend told us to come here. Awesome food, cute girls, and Ivor the owner is rad. We'll definitely be sending friends your way when passing through Chumphon. Thanks!

This was a dreadful place and we were not made to feel welcome at all, in fact it seemed the management would prefer not be bothered with guests really, just take the money from them and the people using the bar, but even then he went and drank and ate elsewhere. When a German backpacker turned up late looking for... More

Place itself offers very basic accommodation. Great for backpackers who usually need just basic thing for low price. Toilets and showers are shared and some improvement there would be advised to the owner. Place is positioned around 10 minutes walk from the train station but asking locals will bring you there without a problem. Place is just opposite the Chumphon... More

I would deffinately recommend this place. The owner looked after me and helped me with the rest of my travels. I was on my own backpacking just staying for a night before going over to Koh Tao. He made sure i had a lift to the ferry and in general was so friendly. The rooms were ideal and clean and... More

Farang Bar has very very basic rooms. For a twin room we paid 250 Baht. Yes, sounds cheap but what do you get: Two beds without a real mattress. Very thin and hard to sleep on this matt. Only a small fan in a really sticky room. That`s it. You can have a better value in Suya Guesthouse for nearly... More

Stopped here whilst on a visa run to Ranong. The room was perfect for me as i anticipated a late-ish night and an early start. The room was a bed (clean) with a tv and a fan... perfect! Everything was clean and was safe enough to leave my laptop in the room whilst i chilled at the bar with a... More

I'm currently living and teaching in Chumphon and The Farang Bar has become my favorite hangout. The atmosphere is great and the staff are all very friendly and helpful. The owner is a well traveled Englishman who has lived in Chumphon for years and who is very knowledgeable and helpful- he's had a satisfactory answer to every question I've had... More
