The bar is about 10 min walk from the train station or 100baht taxi. The bar is set amongst trees and bushes which gives nice relief from the sun but does attract a lot of mosquitos so make sure you wear protection. Especially when going to the toilet. Girls working the bar were friendly. We ordered a bite to eat... More

A nice quiet bar in calm surroundings. The food is great and so are their ice-coffee! Not the cheapest place to eat in Chumphon but not expensive either

We came here and quickly had some sandwiches and fries. Very very good! If you are going to Ranong this place is next to the minivan station! So after the train, this is the best place!!

In Chumphon for 10 days. Farang bar became my local. Good food, top service and lovely people. Nothing was too much trouble. If I asked for something and they didn't have it there, one of the staff would hop on a bike and try to find it. Also dealt with my travel arrangements efficiently. I can't speak highly enough of...

We were apprehensive, as we have been in Thailand due to my girlfriends peanut allergy, but the staff were very careful and made sure that her food was well looked after. The food was brilliant - I would recommend the green curry! The bar is very relaxed and feels very safe and clean. A great place to eat when you're... More

We are a simple, friendly, family run budget-style guesthouse with only eight twin or double bed rooms. One room of three single beds. No dormitories.
We have our own restaurant offering both Thai and Western food.
Our public bar is popular with travelers and locals alike, well stocked with extremely cold beer and specialty cocktails.

We help with the full range of travel advice and ticketing.

The English owner has lived locally and on the islands for nearly fifteen years so is very well connected with many dive shops and resorts on all islands, particularly Koh Tao where he still spends a lot of time to keep information up to date.
