A nice place to visit and on often joined to a visit to James Bond Island - most of the trips on offer here are for Join In trips via taxi and Longtail boats.... I have done several private charters to this area in Phang Nga Bay on a 52ft Coastal Cruiser which was great fun, me and a few... More

I have done the "James Bond Island" day trip from Phuket numerous times, and the last number of times I simply asked our boat man to pass this island. Something you can just do if it is only your group on the boat, and the boat guy is prepared to give up his free meal kickback for bringing you there.... More

From Hat Yai, Songkla by the team of Prince of Songkla University's Halal Institute, almost 500 kms 8 hrs drive, to Phuket we look and like what and where there are along.

I went here as a part of a tour package. I had been to this place many ears ago. And then it was very nice. But today it's a rather boring tourist trap where everyone just try to sell all kinds of tourist things to you.

I had really wanted to see this but I was very disappointed. The tour stopped at the primary school then walked down an alley with tables of the same souvineres they sell everywhere and extreme prices. I paid 60 baht for a water when they cost 13 baht at 711.

Visiting of this village is included in all day trip to Pang Nga or James Bond island, so you have to go there.. Maybe we have other idea about this village, but once we saw it, we were horrified! First you have a bazaar with souvenirs, food, drinks. What to buy? Nothing. We all had and all you can buy... More

This village is famous for two things: One is that it's a floating village. Though not the entire village is floating. They have concrete foundations to support their houses. Another thing is their floating football field which has a true story behind it. Watch it on youtube and you will come to know the hardships the kids have faced their... More

Most of the tourist boats stop here half way so you can get lunch. To be honest locals round here aren't half as friendly as your typical Thai! Shame really as it's an interesting place. - get ready to be sold lots of touristy stuff!

This tiny island seems to be the most popular lunch place for the day tours of 'James Bond' island packages. Our day tour of 'James Bond' Island (by Two Sisters Tour Group) included a few different islands, and lunch was served at one of the many restaurants in Koh Pannyi. The whole break being a couple of hours, our tour... More
