Travelling down to Chumphon from Bangkok on the 21st as we have a ferry booked on the 22nd to Ko Tao, just wondering what would be the better thing to do? either

a) get the 13:00 train to Chumphon arriving at 21:00 and try find somewhere to stay the night before getting the ferry to koh tao next morning

b) 19:00 sleeper train with bed to chumphon which arrives at 03:40 am and then have to wait til 13:00 to get ferry

c) 22:50 train, no sleeper arriving at 5:47

hi there, i just checked with Seat 61 there is a train from Hualamphong to Chumphon at 8am that arrives in Chumphon at 14.40, you could get this train then just get the ferry that day.

Hope that helps
