Outside of Phuket, there is a truly fascinating place – Phang Nga Bay. It is known among many tourists from all over the world for its astonishing landscape. In the bay, there are over 40 limestone rock islands rising from the azure water and amazing visitors with their beauty. Many tourists come to this area mainly to enjoy the picturesque view of the island Koh Pingkan.
The island became an iconic figure of the bay after being filmed in the movie “The Man with the Golden Gun.” The Thais didn’t hesitate to take advantage of such an adorable marketing opportunity and gave the island the second name – James Bond Island, which is now popular with many holidaymakers arrived from different countries.
For many tourists visiting Phuket, James Bond Island is their next stop. There are many tour vessels that offer trips to the island, that’s why the bay is usually busy during the daytime. Since location is a national park, visitors are asked to pay a recreation fee when taking James Bond Island Phuket boat tours. They don’t mind spending extra on observing truly unique views. Most Phuket visitors are planning on visiting Koh Pingkan; however, there are other breathtaking places to observe such as Rang Yai Island, Hong Island, Panak Island and others.
