Chumphon is getting ready to organsze Chumphon Marine Festival to promote marine tourism in the region.

The marine festival takes place over 5 days from 21-25 March 2014 at the Chumphon estuary beach. Activities to enjoy will include marine exhibitions, photography displays, and lots of seaside fun including scuba diving, affordable boat tour packages and the chance to join in with the conservation and restoration of local natural resources.

In addition, there will be displays of rare aquatic animal species, a community garbage-pickup on the beach a fishing tournament. Visitors in good shape might want to join a bike rally up Matsee Mountain, and for anyone who loves great Thai dishes, the seafood festival is sure to be a draw.

The event’s highlight this year is a giant whale shark construction that will be 50 meters long, 14 meters wide and 7 meters high. The giant model will house an exhibition that teaches visitors about the rich history of Chumphon City from its past to its present and future.
