Phang Nga Bay in Phuket, Thailand is possibly one of the most famous Bays in the world.
Most people will only know Phang Nga Bay for one thing, and that is James Bond Island. James Bond Island, or to give it, its real name, Ko Khao Ping Gan, is the beach that was used in the 1970 James Bond movie, The Man with the Golden Gun. It was the movie hideout of Scaramanga (played by Christopher Lee) who at one point in the movie had a duel with James Bond (played by Roger Moore) and in the back ground jutting out from is the needle-shaped limestone kast of Khao Tapu, which translates as Nail Mountain. This has become one of the most photographed places in the whole of Thailand, with most people pulling out the fake gun pose for their Instagram selfies.
But there is so much more to Phang Nga Bay than just James Bond Island.
With lofty limestone karsts and a myriad of islands (over 40), the scenery in Phang Nga Bay is stunning. It’s not just the stunning islands that all shoot up from the emerald waters, it’s the caves, the caverns, and the hidden lagoons that all help make Panag Nga Bay something truly special.
