    Chumphon Rentals

    6 or 7 months booking ahead on a months rental on a house in Chumphon seems a bit extreme, would you be willing to put down a substantial deposit now? Would they be willing to hold it if they get a yearly rental agreement from somebody else in January? Best bet would be to wait till nearer the date I reckon.

    I'm going to look at a house and some land there next week. I lived there for a few years and is the best place in Thailand in my opinion. it has everything I want from Thailand. I don't think you need to book so far in advance for there.
    Treat everyone as a complete and utter idiot and you can only ever be pleasantly surprised !

    It has the reputation for being the wettest place in Thailand but as usual it is all bollocks ! I found living there no worse than HH, Samui, Koh Tao or Issan etc. In rainy season it rains just like the rest of Thailand

    I presume you were in a coma for most of your time in Thailand?

    We don't get anywhere near as many rainy days in Isaan as the South does.

    No I spent 18 months riding my bike around every province in Thailand. not something you can do very easily in a coma. i also spent a few years working and living in Chumphon.
    Have you ? no I thought not. just another wanker who think they know best.
    Chumphon gives me all I ask from Thailand. Nice beaches, great diving, good road access with some stunning rides over the mountains, easy if I need to do a visa run cheap housing and nice Thai people who aren't simply there to take as much money as they can from you unlike here and several other places I have stayed.
    have you ever been there ?
    I can honestly say I have seen more flooding here and had more disruption to my life here on Samui than all the time I lived in Chumphon.

    I'm here in Chumphon at the moment, and guess what.
    It's pissing it down.

    Again.

    Samui & Chumphon have a similar weather cycle, except Samui gets less rain. Isaan doesn't and it has a lot less rainy days. Chumphon seems to have 9 months of rain compared to Udon's 6. It's also hotter and the 'winters' are even more pathetic that ours.

    also i have to agree with the big fella having stayed in chumphon a few times. it does have everything that makes thailand appealing to me. Fantastic beaches (if you take away the sand flies), great seafood at a fraction of the price of samui or phuket , friendly genuine people , no big groups of tanked up yobs and no mr no it all farang s driving around like they own the place. No jetski s No starbucks etc etc etc and it really don t rain that much.

    So do I. Recently returned from Thung Wua Laen Beach in Chumpon.

    It was hard to leave this place.

    I enjoyed my brief stay in Chumpon. Withnail got me drunk then poured me onto the sleeper train to Bangkok. It did rain a little bit, but this was the rainy season.

    I did make it rain once, just to see if it was possible. Here is the method used:-

    1) Swallow 2 small drops of liquid lsd.
    2) Lie down on a big rock on the beach.
    3) Make big dark clouds gather on the horizon.
    4) Make them move toward your beech to empty their rain.
    5) Walk around and laugh a lot at all the wet people.
    6) Laugh even more when you realise that it is possible to dodge the raindrops.
    7) Laugh even more when other people join in the laughing and raindrop dodging.
    8) Rinse and repeat.
