James Bond Island, Ao Phang Nga National Park

(2,600+ reviews on the web)
Island
Take a tour around James Bond Island, a hideaway used by one of 007's many antagonists in the 1974 film "The Man with the Golden Gun." Since the shady Francisco Scaramanga hid out here and the place was cemented into film history, the island has had a name change and the iconic islet featured in the film--a top-heavy limestone crop--has been near the top of visitors' must-see lists. Tour groups run a range of activities in the areas surrounding the islands. Consider a canoe trip around the small islet Ko Tapu (note that concerns about erosion have put an end to motorized boat use here). By using our Ao Phang Nga National Park vacation trip planner, you can arrange your visit to James Bond Island and other attractions in Ao Phang Nga National Park.

  • The only good thing is the canoeing trip. It's amazing how they have taken a location for a movie and turned it into a tourist spot  more »
  • Come on. We were in Krabi, hotel Rayavadee. We take a Longtail boat to the city. Then we got into a van that tight it took more or less 2 hours to get to the point to get another boat to the island. On the way we stopped to put gas in the van and a total tourist handle stop. Going to the island, we stopped a giant floating base to go kayaking across a stone. That was a good ride. The "trunk" of this tour is the guy who wants to tip all the time. "Are you happy? Tip, Tip, Tip, Tip ... "kkk. Then with the same boat, we went to the famous island, which was recorded the James Bond of 1974, James Bond and the Golden gun, or something. Very interesting site, but they put a lot of souvenir stalls, disrupting the local beauty. In the back, was included a lunch. Stopped in a floating village and the food was ready. Hideous. Really bad. We came back, we stopped at a shrine of monkey, and then under a waterfall, Wed 10 cm had no drop of water. ... In Krabi, we needed a boat to go to our hotel and the guys in the van dropped us it? ... I had to turn around to get a boat and if I waited another half hour wouldn't have more boat p hotel and had to sleep in the village.
