Phang nga bay is very beautiful! All those mountains in the water are breathtaking. Worth a visit even if you have already seen khao sok national park lake. We didn't feel like booking a tour so we charted a long tail boat by ourself. We were with 7 people (we met each other in Phang nga) and paid 2100 bath... More

Our motorboat tour took us through amazing landscape stacks and gorgeous water views of this area. We motored past the Kao Ping Gun Island, more popularly known as the James Bond island where they filmed The man with the Golden Gun. Spectacular scenery and is well worth the trip. Stop at the Koh Panyi water village and buy some Spicy... More

I was so filled with sightseeing delight and incredibly amazed of this place and the experience.Highlights......of my existence that... More

This is a must-see! The Bay is beautiful and the scenery is stunning. It is very busy around Kao Ping Gun Island (James Bond Island) so can be difficult to get the best pictures. Make sure you spend some time exploring Koh Panyi (the water village with over 200 houses built on stilts), making sure you visit the school and... More

We had an amazing time for visiting the Bay. Great time for kayaking, caves and visit James Bond island. Our tour guide was very helpful and funny as well. Just visit this place in a sunny day!

The bay is very beautiful with some of the best and most beautiful scenery I have ever seen. The cliffs offer fantastic contrasting views again the water, although I wish it was a little more blue. Make sure you pick a good tour that will let you go swimming. You can see some cool places here, mangrove swamps, caves, Koh... More

I like the scenery so much I have done this tour four times. Many tourists do the "James Bond Island" day trip from Phuket, but I recommend the overnight by Sayan Tours, at the bus station in Phang-Nga town (pronounced "pong-nah"). For $50USD, you get an all-day longtail boat tour not only of the small rock that was best part... More

We were in Thailand in february 2015, the weather was amazing, sunny and we decided for the trip to Pang Nga. If you know the movie Man with golden gun (1974) you must to see this national park. Stunning nature, choose Asian Canoe (trip includes canoe, James Bond island, village on the sea and swimming on the beach), amazing staff.

We started from Kamala Beach and were picked up in a really nice luxury van for a guided tour. The drive was about 1-1/2 hours and takes you through interesting real-life Thailand. Our trip started early enough in the morning that we got to see citizens of Phuket starting their days and commuting to work. Bee, our tour guide, was... More
