We start our journey on the water the traditional way – by one of the beautiful decorated Thai longtail boats. We will drive along the green mangrove jungle, which is amongst others habitat of lizards, snakes, monkeys and different bird species.
Passing by a fascinating karst landscape we will reach the worldwide famous James Bond Island, from which you will have the perfect view on the most popular limestone of that area. Ko Tapu, the James Bond Rock, is a common tourist attraction since the release of the movie “The man with the golden gun” with Roger Moore as secret agent 007.
After a quick stop we will move to a canoe station. There you can lay back and enjoy nature, while an experienced paddle guide will take care of you. He will take you close to hundreds of year old stone formations, to caves and mangroves.
We will continue our tour by visiting a fishing village build on pillars in the water. The sea nomads living here will warmly welcome you to some tasty Thai lunch. Full and satisfied you can take a short walk to discover the village and culture of the inhabitants. You might also find some nice souvenirs for yourself, family or friends.
Later, we are going back to the mainland and by minivan to a beautiful cave temple. It is the one with the lying golden Buddha. Probably you will find a small market in front and meet some macaque monkeys close by. Be careful, they love to steal a tourist’s food.
