This is how I expected Thailands islands to be: Far away, no ATM, no shopping, relaxing, not much people, no party & bars - here I found it. Bring lots of books or just watch the sea. The resorts are on one beach after another, varying from cheap to expensive. A hald an hour walk brings you to the quiet... More

Small paradise to relax and find new energy. beautiful beach and just only some people. Small resorts give you the feeling to be also alone in that little paradise.

Our tire on moped went flat it was dark and we were in between villages, seemed like middle of jungle, local person stopped borrowed his moped and took ours to garage. Lilly's... More

We got exactly what we came for here - peace, quiet and relaxation. The island is unspoilt with tourism, there's a handful of resorts spread across it (book before you go) with quiet beaches - these aren't always perfect for swimming in low tide but the snorkelling is pretty good and the sea/beaches are clean. You are picked up by... More

If you want solitude, monkeys, lots of stairs to climb, and BASIC accommodations, you will love Kho Jum. If on the other hand, you have any mobility problems, do not visit. The Agoda ad for our Jungle Hill Cabins, neglected to mention the 89 uneven stairs between the room and the beach. Neglected to mention that boat arrival meant stepping... More

Small enough to keep its original style and big enough to offer all services you expect while on holiday, don't hesitate to visit Koh Jum, it's a pearl!

if you want to have a quiet time on a beautiful island, Ko Jum is for you. You need to book your hotel / resort prior arrival as the pick up is done by the resorts long tail from the main boat. Ko Jum is one hour by boat from Krabi. Not many places to eat or drink, but Friendly... More

Ko Jum is a peaceful escape from touristy Thailand and has beautiful beaches, very friendly locals and great food. We were there during low season so it might have been quieter than usual but we had the place (almost) to ourselves, hardly any other tourists. Really nice island vibe, a complete getaway and definitely worth a visit!
