The Tapu island or “James Bond Island” is the giant standing rock sitting in the middle of the sea at the area of the front bay near to the Pingkan mountain. Looking from the far, this rock looks like a giant nail, nailing deep into the seawater. This Tapu island is the very famous tourist spot in Phang Nga. Its beauty brought the Hollywood to film their James Bond movie. The Man with the Golden Gun episode here. That is why it got the nickname of “James Bond Island”, where draws in several tours. Another tourist spot here is the Panyee island or floating village.

In this island has many houses laying in the sea where has a small land area  is used for building the mosque and graveyards. The islanders are mostly Muslim and build their villages here.

Great experience & good value

Well organized trip with the charming and funny guide Happy.nPick up was very punctual, many sights over the course of a day. Our highlights were muslim village, James Bond island and the canoe trip! Muslim village was not something we would have otherwise visited but turned out to be a very pleasant surprise and largely different than the rest from the area in Thailand. The cave temple was unnecessary in our opinion. Also very positiv were the explanations about local trees and plants (Mangrove, Mango, Dragon fruit, rubber trees) nLunch was better than expected, drinks and snacks were served in the later afternoon before the canoe trip. nVery high value trip & wholeheartedly recommend!

A great day out

Staff were friendly. Driver arrived on-time for hotel pickup. The boat was covered, which provided sun protection. The journey didn't feel long at all, and was a comfortable ride. I was hoping to kayak on my own, however it was a nice guided tour instead. Would have liked more time to explore the caves. Snacks were plentiful, and I really enjoyed the buffet lunch. I was hoping for time to explore the floating village and interact in an authentic way with the locals, but that wasn't possible. I could have skipped the hour or so at the beach, but that's just me. Overall, it was very well organized, and an enjoyable tour.nnThanks!

Great experience

The service staff is also very lively. The service is very good. Especially exploring the waterfall is very lucky to meet the wild scorpion and make the journey full of surprises.

The islands are very exciting and fun for my son

The islands are very exciting and fun for my son. You can buy local souvenirs. Something strange. We had lunch at the restaurant. There is a fruit market for people who like it. We relax at the waterfall. I am satisfied.
