James Bond Island Tour

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. Placed about 40 metres from the shores of Koh Phing Kan, the most famous one is Koh Tapu, generally known as James Bond Rock, which in the movie houses a laser gun. 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.
What to Expect - The boat day trips to Koh Phing Kan and Koh Tapu depart from the Mhak Prok Pier, in the northeast of Phuket. Most of the tours include visits to the other islands of the bay, and usually include a stop for a seafood lunch at Koh Panyee, the popular fishermen village on stilts. You can buy tour packages to any tourist agency of Phuket with varied possibility of choices. You can opt for a simple rides with long-tails, day trips on large boats with 100-200 seats or speedboats with 25-40 seats, relaxing cruises on Chinese-style wooden junks or more adventurous packages, which provide part of the trip by canoe. Price varies depending on the option chosen, roughly range from 1,600 to 1,800 THB for a trip by large boat, 2,200-3,000 THB for speedboat tour, and about 3,500-4,000 THB for a cruise on junk. Usually the tours include the transfer by minivan from your hotel, the roundtrip by the chosen boat; tropical fruit, water, coffee or tea on board; lunch buffet, on boat or in beaches or in Panyee Village; tour guide and insurance.
