James Bond Island Tour by Speedboat

Travel to James Bond Island with on a nine-hour speedboat ride through stunning limestone karst rocks. Follow in the footsteps of Roger Moore and be amazed by Khao Phing Kan with its needle-shaped rock formations and visit the Panyee floating village in Phang Nga Bay. Koh Phing Kan, or Ko Khao Phing Kan, is the most famous landmark in Phang Nga Bay. The tiny island, better known as James Bond Island, and the surrounding area has become famous since when some scenes of the James Bond film " The Man with the Golden Gun" were filmed here. A distinctive feature of island is the great number of sheer limestone cliffs, which, just a few meters from the beach, vertically jut out of the emerald green water. The most famous one, that in the movie houses a laser gun, is Koh Tapu, generally known as James Bond Rock, placed about 40 metres from the shores of Koh Phing Kan. The tiny island is just a limestone tower high 20 metres above sea level of a breathtaking beauty. All the area is now under the protection of the National Park, so you should pay a park entrance fee. If you are on a tour the park fee is included in your tour price, if you arrive privately the rangers collect a fee of 200 THB. The stop on Koh Tapu is not allowed, and any kind of boats can not approach very close to the pinnacle cliffs, for their precarious position. The two ways to view Koh Tapu are from a boat, at a safe distance, or from the beach on James Bond Island. The island is another wonderful example of what can do Mother Nature. Koh Phing Kan is a tropical paradise, with a beautiful white sand beach to the east, often crowded in high season, crystal clear water and some small caves inside. All the area is a popular destination among tourists for sailing as well as kayaking. Koh Panyee, also known as Ko Panyi, is a giant limestone cliff located at estuary of a river along the coast of Phang Nga Bay, on the way to James Bond Island. The limestone rock became famous thanks the Muslim village built on stilts about 200 years ago at the feet of it. Only a very small part of the village, as where the mosque is built, is on solid ground, the rest grew on stilts and slowly continues to grow.
