James Bond Island (Koh Tapu) | Thailand
We drove north in Phang Nga and stopped at a pier knew there were longboats for hire. They look like long canoes with a canvas tent-like canopy and can hold about 35 people.
It took 30 minute boat ride to reach James Bond Island, I was amazed by the surrounding Fantastic view. We were enjoying taking pictures,while waiting for the boat to arrived at the James Bond Island.
The Phang Nga Bay surrounding indeed a very beautiful place. That emerald green water and a sheer limestone karsts that jut vertically view was really rare.
And here is at Koh Ping Ghan. It is just next to the James Bond Island. Ko Ping Ghan is a steep limestone wall and connected with undiscovered cave.It is really a unique nature features,This is a must visit place.
This is the James Bond Island. It first found onto the international tourist map through the James Bond movie 'The Man with the Golden Gun'. James Bond Island, with its signature rocky pinnacle, has been a major attraction ever since it was filmed in the 1974 James Bond movie. A distinctive feature of this famous bay is the number of sheer limestone cliffs that vertically jut out of the emerald-green water.
James Bond Island is under national park protection. No boats of any kind are allowed to go too close to the island because of its precarious position; big on the upper part and relatively slim at the bottom. The two best ways to view James Bond Island are from boats or from the small beach on Koh Ping Ghan.
