James Bond Island tour

Koh Khao Ping Gan, a.k.a. James Bond Island
James Bond Island (Koh Khao Ping Gan)
Technically located in Phang Nga province to the north of Krabi, we include this trip (which does depart from Krabi) as it is so popular – 007 and Bond Girl wannabes are clearly more common than we thought! You can make like Roger Moore in The Man with The Golden Gun on the tiny island of Koh Khao Ping Gan, which served as Scaramanga’s hideout in the movie, filmed way back in 1974.

The crowds and rows of souvenir stands may sully the experience now, but the trip is made more interesting by other things on the itinerary, not least of which is a wonderful cruise through Phang Nga Bay, which has some of the most astonishing scenery in the world.

You will also visit a traditional floating fishing village at Koh Panyi. The tour – which should really be called a “Phang Nga” trip – can also be combined with other activities, such as a short kayak paddle through the mangroves.

There are two main ways of visiting James Bond Island from Krabi: the first (and most expensive) is directly by speedboat, which gives you a proper island cruise, including a stop off at Koh Hong, as well as a kayaking excursion. This is only available to groups of 8 or more – please contact us for more information. The second option, open to all, consists of an overland drive (around 1 – 1.5 hours) to Phang Nga, then a short cruise by longtail boat of the main islands, with optional kayaking trip. Note: there is no snorkeling available on this trip.
