Chumphon is a sea coast city parallel to the Gulf of Thailand.
It is the gateway to other southern provinces. Along more than 200
kilometres of Chumphons seashore, there are many beautiful and
picturesque beaches. Still maintaining the natural beauty, the
province is best for those who seek relaxation in the natural
and uniquely quiet atmosphere.

Historical documents state that Chumphon was continuously the
locations of many communities since the pre-historic period,
especially in the area near Tha Taphao River banks. Chumphon
was also one of the leading trading centers of Siam (former
name of Thailand).

Due to being the frontier city, the name Chumphon is believed
to derive from Chumnumphon, which means the accumulation of forces.
Whenever there were movements from the army, the soldiers would
gather their forces here at this province.

The other source believed that it should be derived from a local
plant named Maduea Chumphon due to its richness in this area.
Therefore, naturally, this plant has become a symbol of the logo
of Chumphon Province.
