Chumphon is one of the southern provinces (changwat) of Thailand on the Gulf of Thailand. Neighboring provinces are Prachuap Khiri Khan, Surat Thani, and Ranong. To the west it also borders the Burmese province of Tanintharyi.GeographyChumphon is on the Isthmus of Kra, the narrow landbridge connecting the Malay Peninsula with the mainland of Thailand. To the west are the hills of the Phuket mountain range and its northern continuation, the Tenasserim Hills, while the east is the more flat land on the coast of the Gulf of Thailand. The main river is the Lang Suan River, which originates in Phato District. A number of small islands in the Gulf of Thailand form the Chumphon Archipelago.HistoryThe southern part of the province was originally a separate province named Lang Suan. It was incorporated into Chumphon in 1932.In November 1989 typhoon Gay hit the province hard. 529 people were killed, 160,000 became homeless, 7130km² of farm land was destroyed. Gay is the only tropical storm on record which reached Thailand with typhoon wind strength.
