Getting to the famous island of Krabi in Thailand has never been trouble as there are many access points available in the area. While chilling at Krabi Island, seeing the nearby islands is always the best way to explore the wonders of nature in Thailand fully. One of the underrated islands that most travellers tend to overlook is Koh Jum, which is a small island situated between Koh Lanta and Krabi Town. Despite being less developed, this island offers a fantastic atmosphere and beautiful beaches that are empty most of the time, which is perfect for travellers who prefer fewer crowds.
Koh Jum Pier serves as an arrival and departure point for boats and ferries. It offers ferry services for various routes to and from different islands across the area including Langkawi Island in Malaysia. There is no specific ferry terminal located here in Koh Jum; only a pier is provided as a mini ferry port for the boats. The journey between the islands from Koh Jum Pier takes no more than 2 hours for a one-way trip.
Take a flight to Krabi Airport from Bangkok or any other departure points serving a flight route to Krabi. Once arrived at the airport, grab a 35-minute van or taxi ride to Laem Kruat Pier in Ao Nang. The easiest way to get to Koh Jum Pier is by taking the daily boat services from Krabi Town. Book a speedboat ride from Laem Kruat Pier (in Krabi Town) to get to Koh Jum Pier. This ferry service also passes by Koh Lanta before heading to Koh Jum.
