About Koh Jum
Koh Jum (or Koh Pu) is a picturesque and silent island 25 km south of Krabi and north of Koh Lanta. The highest Mountain is 422m, covered with rain forest. There are three small villages with shops and quite good restaurants. They can be reached on simple roads. The people of Koh Jum are muslims, who earn their lifes with rubber tree plantations and fishing. Along the lonely and white sandy beaches in the south west of the island there is nothing but nature and space for walking and laying in the sun or shade of coconut trees. Koh Jum is excellent for relaxing and lazy days on a hidden and beautiful island that is not yet discovered by tourism.
