"The Quieter Side of Krabi"

Ko Jum Tourism

One of the Islands in Krabi, Ko Jum has become a relaxing spot for tourists, away from other crowded destinations in Thailand. Located around 25 kilometres south of Krabi, this island is known for its laid-back lifestyle. Just like its neighbouring islands, Koh Phi and Koh Lanta, Koh Jum offers a range of seafood restaurants and bungalow resorts, making it a pleasant beachside destination for national as well as international travellers. 

The journey from central Krabi to Koh Jum isn’t very complicated. Visitors can easily take a boat or a ferry to this island, which runs many times a day. The North of this island is covered with forest-peaks of Ko Puh while the South is occupied by scrubland and rubber. Ko Jum is not only a place for relaxation as it also has a variety of things to indulge in such as Snorkelling, Scuba Diving and trekking along with a set of beautiful places to see such as Ting Rai Beach, Magic beach and Ao Si Beach. Nevertheless, the slow rhythm of this place is the sole reason why people choose to come here often.
