Experience description

Picked up by air-conditioned minivan, you’ll transfer to Phang Nga Bay, famous as the location for Scaramanga’s hideaway in the 007 film “The Man with the Golden Gun” and ever since a major feature on the tourist route. The 100+ islands here, and the massive limestone rocks spearing out of the water, make for dramatic scenery. You’ll have a brief stopover to see the reclining Buddha statue in the Suwankuha Temple, otherwise known as Monkey Cave on account of the many furry inhabitants who make it their home, then it’s time to climb aboard a long-tail boat and head out into the bay. These boats are definitely the best way to get around, but be prepared for some spray!

You’ll get up close to James Bond Island and another called Koh Tapu, and may also stop at Khao Phing Kan, where souvenir stands and food stalls are found in tiny caves.

Thalu Island, with its stalactites and limestone cliffs, is ideal for a guided sightseeing tour, or you can just relax on the beach for a while if that’s more your thing, then it’s on to the fantastic floating village of Panyee. Built by an Indonesian fishing community, you can be sure of some excellent seafood in the restaurant here.

Your tour concludes at the beautiful Raman Waterfall National Park, where you can take your time swimming, sunbathing and sightseeing before the boat ride home.


Highlights:

  • “James Bond Island” and the many other scenic spots in Phang Nga Bay

Overly crowded as bus loaded of tourists on the same tour, WAY over priced, and the food was the worst we had in all of Thailand (including airplane food).

Anonymous

Over crowded, the 'long tail boat' was VERY loud, the food was satisfactory but served luke warm. The location is beautiful but spoilt by tourism. It felt like we were on a conveyor-belt. The tour guide didnt tell us anything about the region, the locals, just herded us from one place to the next.

Traveling to the James Bond Island from Krabi in Thailand was a very awesome experience that I definitely recommend to all travelers. Beautiful landscapes, amazing food and friendly monkeys make this a MUST-DO in everyone's itinerary to Thailand. Will definitely do again!
