Boasting shimmering emerald waters, towering rocky outcrops and scenery straight out of a postcard, Phang Nga Bay is a stunning Thailand attraction that draws thousands of tourists from all over the world. The region itself roughly spans 400 sq km and is home to over 100 islands, many of which are uninhabited. Phang Nga Bay is located approximately 45 minutes from Phuket and is best accessed via fast boat. Renowned for its beautiful scenery and picturesque views, Phang Nga Bay was made famous in many Hollywood blockbusters including the Star Wars and James Bond films. With its tranquil tropical scenery and awe-inspiring landscapes, Phang Nga Bay is a must visit attraction on your next Thailand adventure.
Phang Nga Bay is a popular attraction easily accessible from Phuket. We recommend booking an all-day boat tour for the best holiday experience. A tour operator will provide pick up and drop off services from your hotel as well as an included lunch on the boat. Prepare to explore the tropical waters as you venture through ancient caves, fishing villages, spot sea gypsies, visit secluded beaches and discover a whole world of breathtaking natural beauty. On your all day adventure you can also enjoy snorkelling the technicolour tropical reefs and kayaking among the incredible landscapes. You may also spot some cheeky monkeys and other wildlife throughout the journey.
The most popular landmark within Phang Nga Bay is James Bond Island where an unusual and elongated limestone cliff lies next to a tiny island made famous in the 1974 film, Man With The Golden Gun. The unique landscape is one of the most photographed locations in Thailand and is an amazing sight to see. We recommend visiting James Bond island early in the morning as the tiny island becomes flooded with long tail boats throughout the day.
