After hotel pickup from Phuket, board a boat and cruise onto Phang Nga Bay, inside Thailand’s Ao Phang Nga National Park. Set between Phuket and the Malay Peninsula, this spectacular bay is characterized by lushly wooded islands and limestone karsts jutting from the sea.
See rubber plantations and locals going about their daily life, and visit a Buddhist cave temple known for its colonies of monkeys. Then, enjoy a scenic cruise through mangrove swamps, watching for monkeys and other wildlife on route.
Next, make your way to Khao Ping Kan, the ruggedly beautiful island nicknamed ‘James Bond Island,’ for featuring in the 1974 movie The Man with The Golden Gun.
Admire the limestone walls and caves, relax on the sands, and take photos of the 66-foot (20-meter) islet of Ko Tapu that served as the villain's hideout in the movie.
Continue to Koh Panyi, a floating, stilted Muslim village set above the waters. After a delicious seafood lunch here, board a canoe with a guide to do the paddling, and drift around the caves of Talu Island. Soak in the scenery as you glide through rock tunnels, lagoons, and limestone caves.
Your tour then ends with a hotel drop-off in Phuket.
