James Bond Island is located in Phang Nga National Park and it is a famous landmark in the park. Any vacation in Thailand will be incomplete without visiting this famous destination. Before the shooting of the James bond movie which made the island famous worldwide, the Island name was Koh Tapa meaning the nail island. The name is derived from the shape of a nail which the island resembles. It is big on the uppermost side and pretty slim at the bottom.
The entire area surrounding the island is very scenic and spectacular. The island has several sheer limestone cliffs that emerge from the green waters of the sea and rise vertically. James bond by longtail boat is the best way to explore and take in all the beauty of the Island. This is a traditional Thailand boat that has a sunroof to provide shade from the sun.
Close to the James bond Island is the magical nature wonder Koh Ping Ghan. This is a very tall slanting rock with some small caves inside. It's amazing exploring the caves. Once you take in all you can get from this scenic island, you will head for lunch at a nearby floating village in a small island known as Koh Panyi. The floating village has a lot of restaurants and souvenir shops all with beautiful sea views. It is a great place to enjoy fresh seafood and Thailand dishes.
