Koh Jum, Krabi
Low-key but comfortable resort set between ocean and jungle
4 day extension to an unspoilt island in the Andaman Sea
Lying in the Andaman Sea just off the coast of Krabi Province, Koh Jum (Jum Island) is situated slightly north of popular Koh Lanta and directly opposite the world-famous Phi Phi Islands. With this terrific location, miles of pristine sandy beaches and a lush interior of jungle-clad hills and traditional fishing villages we’re at a loss to know how this delightful island has managed to remain off the radar for so long.
So much the better we reckon and that’s why we’ve selected this particular picturesque and unspoilt island for our south Thailand beach extension. Our suggestion is a 3-night stay in a friendly, low-key resort with traditional-style bamboo and wood chalets set in a tropical garden with the ocean on one side and the jungle on the other. Apart from the in-house spa, pool and sunset bar, optional activities include kayaking through mangroves, a nature hike across the island, cycling to the local fishing village or a snorkelling trip to nearby Koh Phi Phi.
This Koh Jum extension is ideal for anyone looking to add on a few days quality ‘R and R’ after our south Thailand Mountains and Rainforests tour and so starts with a transfer from Trang and finishes with a return flight from Krabi to Bangkok. (The latter is included in the price of our south Thailand tour.) Our listed price is based on 2 persons sharing and the cost for a single traveller in a single room is £475.
The Andaman Sea coast is affected by the western monsoon during the May/June to September/October period so Koh Jum is ideally suited to the November to April season.
Please note that nearby Krabi Airport has several flights per day to Bangkok so the add-on is feasible for any tour finishing in Thailand’s capital with the addition of a Bangkok to Krabi return flight. (Prices vary by carrier, time and date but start from approximately $100 return.)
Here's an idea of what you can expect to do and see day-to-day.
Day 4 - Koh Jum and return to Bangkok
Transfer at your leisure (there are several daily departures) to Krabi Airport for a return flight to Bangkok. (Please note if you are booking this add-on as an extension to our south Thailand tour then the return flight is already included.)
