Ao Phang-Nga (Phang-Nga Bay) National Park

Phang Nga Bay covers an area of 400 km2 and is home to over forty small islands/ islets. Its highlight, Ko Tapu (AKA James Bond Island), has been a major attraction ever since it was featured in the 1974 James Bond movie. Next to it lies Ko Ping Ghan which has some small caves. This area is a popular destination for sailing and kayaking. Most of the organised tours to James Bond Island include kayaking around Ko Hong and a stop for simple lunch at Ko Panyee – a Muslim fishing village built on stilts. Visitors who want to have more freedom can rent a private boat for a day or half day.
