Tung Wua Laen Beach, Chumphon

Post by buksida » 16 Jan 2013 08:29

Just spent a couple of days down there, makes a nice change as they have a bit more on the beach than Suan Luang with only two bar/restaurants! There is plenty of accommodation at all budgets, a few western eateries and a couple of beach bars. The water is crystal clear and there is diving at the offshore islands. Takes about an hour to drive there, take the shortcut before you get to the Chumphon intersection.

K-Had Bar - A late night place popular with the locals, good atmosphere.
Jasmines - Biker bar with pool table and rock music.

Restaurants
Pirates Terrace - A great place for breakfast with a wide selection of western food on the menu.

Accommodation
Nana Beach Resort - 3 star accommodation from 1200 baht with a nice big pool.
K-Had Bungalows - A/C bungalows from 600 baht.

Diving/Snorkeling
Dive Chumphon - Werner at the Cabana knows the local islands backwards.

What would be the best way to get to TWL from Bangkok? and what would be our chances of finding a beach bungalow for the weekend on a friday afternoon...? Thank you...

Fly via Nok Air, takes about an hour: http://www.nokair.com/nokconnext/aspx/index.aspx

TWL is about ten minutes from the airport.

Should have no problem finding somewhere to stay at this time of year.

As Buksida says flying is the easiest.
Weekends get quite busy with Thai's but still plenty of places to stay at the moment.
