    Chumphonís understated charms
    While often traversed by tourists heading for Koh Tao or places farther South, this coastal province can certainly hold its own as far as natural assets and friendly natives go

    Unpretentious beauty
    Nature-oriented Chumphon is a province with much to offer the more adventuresome and outdoorsy traveller.

    Trip to Chumphon for the Phato Rafting Festival

    Richard Barrow

    One of the areas that was hit hard by the recent flooding in Southern Thailand was Chumphon Province. The people in Phato district said it was the worst flooding in living memory. Although the flood has now receded and the water in the river has returned to a normal color, the scars still remain. I met the owner of Malin Rafting Service in Phato. Her house & rafts were washed away in a flash flood. She spent the night in the tree. Despite losing everything, she was determined to continue. With help from the government, she was able to buy new rafts. This weekend her company took part in the annual Phato Raft Festival. I tweeted the following photos during my trip to Chumphon.
