James Bond Island, Ao Phang Nga National Park

3.7
#1 of 55 in Parks in Phang Nga Province
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).

  • Really nice island and a nice trip to get there but way too crowded. You have to queue to take a pic without dozens of tourists in front
  • This place was beautiful. Once you walk to the other end of the island there are vendors who are pretty aggressive.
  • Great place get there before the crowds. Watch out for the Moody vendors selling tat, if you touch anything they I expect you to buy it.be warned!
  • Great island to explore, a little busy in high seasons, also the water is not as clean as I have expected, not good for swimming, but the view is amazing!
  • Recently been here and it's really wonderful to visit lime rock cave. The Island itself speak nature. It's must visit place if you go Phuket, Thailand
