Ko Bulon – backpacking to Thailand`s paradise!
Where are the last gems of Thailand? Are you looking for a quiet, idyllic and native Island in Thailand? A place far up from mass tourism, rave parties and 7Eleven?
We have the ultimate insider tip for you: Ko Bulon
That’s why we love Koh Bulon
Wow – what an island! Koh Bulone is a postcard island – with its white sand, palm trees, and turquoise water – the most beautiful beaches – And the best is, that this island is still an insider tipp! We had done lots of Island hopping in Thailand – Ko Bulon surprised us the most.
It’s such a paradise for beach lovers – the water is so clear, you can see fish swarms swimming around you. And on the land there are even lizard’s strolling around! Ko Bulon became quickly our favorite of all islands.
If you are looking for banana boat, goa parties or fancy cocktail bars you are definitely at the wrong place. There are just a handful of cute beach huts, small restaurants and quite bars, instead of air-conditioning you will find ventilators and most of the showers are cold. There are no ATM’s on the island, so make sure you’ll have enough cash.
Soon you are going to get a real Robinson Cruiso feeling – the ideal place to calm down and escape the hectic daily routine.
There is nothing to do on this Island – probably that’s why it is also so special. Just hang around all day in a hammock and enjoy the idyll! It’s so nice just to strawl around the beaches, playing some games with friends and hanging out in one of the few beach bars.

The water is extremely clear and turquoise blue, and in the distance you can see tiny islands.
Now back home, we really wish we had stayed a bit longer!
How to get to Koh Bulon?
Best to reach Ko Bulon by speedboat. They are operating among others from Krabi, Phuket, Ko Lanta and Trang. For the timetables you can check out 12Go.Asia . As soon as the ferry arrives at Ko Bulon, a long tail boat will come out to catch up the transfer passengers. (50baht)
Where to stay at Koh Bulon?
There are just a few resorts and bungalows on the island. If you are traveling in the main season you should make a reservation. We stayed at the Bulonhill Resort, which was a budget option. If you would like to stay in a middle class resort we recommend the Pansand Resort. There are no luxury resorts until now 🙂
