What is the deal with Chumphon?

Aug 15, 2018

Those of you familiar with the New Nordic Group know that we are extremely particular about the destinations we choose, and that we follow the same model and look for the same core principles. Our Coral Beach Resort in Chumphon, Thailand, however, might seem like "the odd one out" in our portfolio as it is in a quiet province without any bigger town or city close to our projects.

Chumphon is an extremely interesting destination, and there are so many reasons why we added this destination to our portfolio. Here are a few:

 - The region has been picked out by the Tourism Authorities of Thailand (TAT) as one of the key destinations to promote for tourism in the coming years under the campaign called "Discover Thainess". Bangkok Post writes: "The authority also predicted international arrivals would increase from a predicted 37.5 million this year to 40 million next year, with domestic tourists making 169 million trips for 2019, up from 160 million this year. " Read the full story here.

- As a part of a comprehensive Master Plan prepared by the Ministry of Tourism and Sports often called the "Rivera Project", Chumphon, as well as three other regions, will be upgraded to tap their full potential for natural, cultural, historical, gastronomic, sports and community-based tourism. Included in this work is 25 national parks and water parks and 528 Kms of coastline. Read more here. 

- Chumphon is included as a stop on a high speed train project between Bangkok and Nakhon Ratchasima Province (Korat)

- Chumphon remains one of the places were tourists still can experience "true Thailand" with its 222km coast and 44 islands. Chumphon has waterfalls, peaceful beaches, green forests, mangroves and rivers. The lifestyle here is quiet and the atmosphere is friendly and inviting.


With all these positive developments in the area we think Chumphon is a fantastic option for our clients if they want something a little bit different, and want to sacrifice the busy city life for white sandy beaches, relaxing days and good, authentic Thai restaurants. In addition, Coral Beach, where our resort is located, is one of the most beautiful beaches in the area with coral reefs only a short swim from the beach. Our first condominium and villa projects will be completed this year, with the second condominium project just having started construction.

Chumphon is a fantastic area with so much potential. I even  have my own apartments in the project.
