Chumphon Province


Braveheart

Recommended Posts

Chumphon (Thai ชุมพร) is one of the southern provinces (changwat) of Thailand, at the shore of the Gulf of Thailand. To the west it also borders Myanmar.

 

Chumphon is located 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 chain, while the east is the more flat land at the coat to the Gulf of Thailand. The main river is the Lang Suan, which originates in Phato district.

 

In November 1989 the typhoon Gay hit the province hard - 529 people were killed, 160,000 became homeless, 7,130 km

In November 1989 the typhoon Gay hit the province hard - 529 people were killed, 160,000 became homeless, 7,130 km� of farm land was destroyed. Gay is the only tropical storm on record which reached Thailand with typhoon wind strength.

 

The provincial seal shows an angel, which gives blessing to the people. It is placed between two Cluster Fig trees (Ficus racemosa), which is also the provincial tree. The provincial flower is the Indian shot (Canna indica), and the finger banana is another provincial symbol.

 

Chumphon is subdivided into 8 districts (Amphoe). These are further subdivided into 70 communes (tambon) and 674 villages (muban). Chumphon and Lang Suan are the two towns (thesaban mueang), there are further 12 townships (thesaban tambon).
