The James Bond island is small and commercial. The place gets pretty crowded and I wasn't too fascinated by that James Bond rock. I'll prefer a visit to phi phi any day over this

This island was chosen for a good reason to star in "The man with the golden gun". It's a very small island, but the scenery is amazing. The pillar in the water is the main landmark, and everyone takes many photos of it. It can get quite crowded on the island if too many tour boats arrive at the same... More

It's on everyone's must see list in Thailand. It's very crowded and commercial. A lot of shops selling over priced souvenirs

Points to be noted before the trip. Don't go in summer - you cannot enjoy thanks to the burning sun. Start early - To enjoy the scenaries sun rise and to avoid the crowd. I did all the above mistakes so was not a fun trip. It's a long ride from patong. They started only by 10 after collecting everyone... More

This is the first time we went to bond island. It was a new experience for us. We went through a VIP tour. It can be rated as the second most visited day trips during visit for Phuket or Krabi. Bond island area, rock caves and canoe are the best parts of this trip. I would recommend Phi Phi tour... More

We docked at Patong..the ride was mostly boring but the boat ride was nice. We spent more time getting there and back than experiencing the islands...didn't have time to visit any of them. If docked in Patong, you may do better just seeing the sights there.

We chose the long tail boat tour to visit James Bond island...hundreds of tourists all at once. would have been better if the tour operators arrived at different times, so that less tourists would be free enough to take pictures without a crowded area...

James Bond Island tour is a particularly touristy area, yes. However, as long as you go in the early morning you are still able to avoid the hundreds of boats that make their way onto the island around 830am onwards. We left the shores of Phuket at 6 or 630am, and by the time we arrived on the Island there... More

Choose to do this trip from krabi instead of from Phuket. Did the booking from one of the many agents in krabi. Was hassle free. Got picked up from hotel in the morning and was transferred into a minivan for the rest of the journey. The boat ride to James Bond island is fun . Quite hot and sultry in... More
