James Bond Island, Ao Phang Nga National Park

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).

  • Island itself is quite small, I would say that it is "must stop & see" for the group tours. Except of taking photos there are some nice shops where locals sell their handcraft products.  more »
  • Time worth spending on the island. Swimming on this beautiful beach on alot of sit seeing. Canoeing and just a remarkable experience. Would definitely recommend The James Bond island to South Africans...  more »
  • The only downside was that we had to get up at 07:00 to be ready at 8am, time when the Van picked us up from the Disut Hotel. Note, that the Hotel Disut offers this service, practically for double the price, so go directly through Rung Siam Andaman Group. The driver of the Van very welcoming and very good driver, a guide mentioned NANA , super friendly and despite our excursion in the rain, it was a very nice visit, not to mention on the return, visit ingtone a very beautiful temple.
