Decent eating options at reasonable prices are few and far between in Chumphon so after checking out the short list online we headed to Farang Bar. The name suggests it caters to foreigners (the literal translation) and so we figured this place might have a nice variety of dishes and decent servings to boot. First and foremost it does have...

We have been In Thailand for over a month now, all over from the islands to the north etc and we can honestly say this is the best food we've had. Sooo good. And they actually take spice seriously! Also extremely kind and the waitress knew English well.

I frequently stop by this little spot and have done for many years. I have to say that these guys can never do enough. I travel the area regularly by motorcycle and decided to make a pitstop here to watch football. The owner arranged for wine to be brought in, I parked the bike and was served to perfection by...

It's #1 on trip advisor but it's nothing special. English owned which must attract the English. There only 4 people in there when we visited one was the owner himself. Pleasant chap but did nothing but slate other local businesses which I didn't consider to be very professional. If your looking for a big screen English feel and conversation for... 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.
