New Chumphon Guesthouse

This was the first guest house in Chumphon, founded and run by Miao, a colourful old lady who's something of a local institution in her own right.

No pic at the moment -- Sorry! The New Chumphon Guest House is the same as the old one--Miao added the word 'new' at one point just for giggles. If you're looking to save money and don't care about amenities, head straight here. The teak rooms have a nice atmosphere, the flop-house rooms are adequate to the purpose, and the prices are fair. It's hardly luxurious--the run-down bathrooms and showers are all shared, and you'll have to ask if you want blankets or towels--Miao got tired of people stealing them. The big draw is a comfy, open-air sala for hanging out in the evenings. It's on a quiet, leafy side street, but close to the night market which provides excellent options for chowing down. If you arrive after 22:00 Miao will probably be asleep, so just crash in one of the empty rooms and sort things out in the morning. If you're going to Ko Tao though, the boat leaves at 07:00, so wake up good and early--Miao will sell you a ticket and get you to the pier. She can also set you up with one and two day trips to visit waterfalls, caves and go rafting. She also has a guest house on Thung Wua Laen with good deals on rooms--she'll drive you out there for free.
