About this tour

A sea tour to Phang Nga Bay to behold James Bond Island and visit the Panyi (Panyee) Village is a highlight for many tourists venturing to the South of Thailand. Khao Lak Land
Discovery would be honoured to take you there! Phang Nga Bay, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is famed for its constantly evolving karst topography that water has sculpted into some of
the most strikingly beautiful islands to be found anywhere in the world, none being more iconic than Koh Tapu, also known as James Bond Island. Explore by canoe the hidden
secrets within limestone sea caves that have taken millions of years to form. Visit a Buddhist Temple and learn about the religion that helped shape the culture of a nation! Come with us on an excursion that will reveal how time has evolved the extraordinary landscape and proud culture of the Phang Nga region! 

Our driver and guide will pick you up right in front of your hotel and begin the scenic drive to the pier at Phang Nga Bay, where your chariot awaits. Hop aboard a traditional Thai Longtail boat and embark on a sightseeing tour through one of the most breathtaking regions in the world! Visit Ko Khao Phing Kan and have the chance to immortalize the image of James Bond Island with your camera. Next, you will be taken on a guided canoe tour inside mysterious sea caves to explore what lies within. For lunch, your captain will make way to the village at Panyee Island, where you will dine on a traditional Thai meal, mingle with the locals, and learn about their unique history. After you are back ashore, you will gain insight into the predominant religion of Thailand while walking the grounds of an authentic Thai Buddhist Temple.

Book your tour with us today, and prepare for an exciting day filled with breathtaking panoramic vistas and local culture! You will soon understand why Phang Nga Bay has become one of the top tourist destinations in Thailand!


Your friendly guide and driver will pick you up in an air-conditioned minibus in front of your hotel lobby around 7:30 am. Your exact pick-up time depends on the location of your hotel, which we will confirm with you when you book.

Hop aboard a traditional Thai Longtail boat to begin the scenic journey into Phang Nga Bay, and have your camera ready to capture the breathtaking karst islands that earned Phang Nga Bay UNESCO World Heritage Site status!

  • Before long, Ko Tapu will appear in the distance. Ko Tapu received the nickname James Bond Island after being seen in the 007 movie The Man with the Golden Gun. Once you have arrived on the neighbouring island, Ko Khao Phing Kan, your tour guide will lead you to a viewing area where you can photograph the iconic 20-metre tall monolithic islet, Ko Tapu.
  • Khao Phing Kan translates to English as Island of Mountains Leaning Against Each Other. While you are there, be sure not to miss the opportunity to photograph the intricately scribbled cliff face leaning on the neighbouring peak.
  • The captain will stop at a location where an experienced paddle guides canoe into sea caves to witness the ever-changing formations up close and personal. Over the ages, water erosion and sedimentary deposits have sculpted the limestone islands into unique shapes with numerous sinkholes, caves, and caverns. Stalactites hang precariously from the cave ceilings over your head, and stalagmites rise from the shoreline. Without the need to paddle yourself, your hands are free to capture stunning photographs of the interior of the caves.

    The residents of Ko Panyi proudly welcome visitors to their village, which, when viewed from a distance, appears to float on the surface of the sea. Panyi Village may appear to float, yet nearly all the structures are supported columns embedded in the sea bed. One notable exception is the football pitch, made famous when the local youth football club won six back to back Southern Thailand Championships from 2004 to 2010. Panyi Village is currently home to around 1,600 residents, all of whom can trace their lineage to a few Javanese families that settled on Ko Panyi in the eighteenth century. You will dine on lunch prepared by the Panyi people, with plenty of time afterward to explore their village, shop for souvenirs, and learn a little about their proud history and culture.

    When the tour of Phang Nga Bay is complete, the captain will return to the pier, where your driver and minibus await. Please make sure that you have all of your personal belongings with you when you disembark.

    On your return journey to Khao Lak, your guide will decide to visit Wat Prachum Sueksa Temple or Wat Tham Suwan Kuha Temple. Wat Tham Suwan Kuha tends to get uncomfortably overcrowded as it is a popular destination for large tour buses carrying tourists from Phuket who come to feed the resident monkeys and view the reclining Buddha statue inside the cave that the temple is famed for. Your guide will take you to Wat Prachum Sueksa for a more intimate experience if Wat Tham Suwan Kuha is going to be overcrowded. The temple grounds will be the subject of your photos at Wat Prachum Sueksa, not a hoard of tourists, albeit without the monkeys. If you had your heart set on seeing monkeys, don't worry! We have it covered. We will take you to view the monkeys at a picturesque public park in Phang Nga!

    We will have you back at your resort around 5 pm, just in time to watch the sun set over the North Andaman Sea. Once again, please be sure you have all your belongings when you exit the minibus. We thank you for joining us and hope to see you again soon!
