Beach-side gypsy village

What we say: 3.5 stars

This rather dilapidated bungalow joint is Ko Jum's most hippie-ish place to stay; look no further if you're into dreadlocks, guitars and the simple life. The whole place has an eclectic, thrown-together feel, with bits of curio lying beneath the beach pines and plenty of seashell and driftwood "art". While the yellow woven bamboo huts have seen better days, they come with hammocks on the front porches and are fine for those who don't mind roughing it. Thin mattresses are placed on the floor under well-worn mosquito nets. The cheapest beachfront huts rely on shared bathrooms that are nothing more than a thatch wall surrounding an open-air cold-water shower and toilet. The facilities are in the middle of the resort and the wall stands only so high, so expect strangers to be able to see your head while you shower if you stand over a certain height. The pricier huts are larger and have private cold-water bathrooms with bucket-flush toilets. Bo Daeng is run by a very welcoming pair of sisters, and the food is reported to be very good. You'll also find a number of books piled up in the cluttered little restaurant.
