Early Bird Phang Nga Discovery Tour

Early Bird Phang Nga
Discovery Tour

Experience the unique beauty of the towering limestone rocks and hidden lagoons of
Phang Nga Bay without the crowds. Visit James Bond Island, kayak through caves
and mangroves and visit a unique floating village with a rich local culture.


The name, Phang Nga Bay, conjures up images of hauntingly beautiful limestone cliffs, known as karsts, rising majestically from emerald waters. This picturesque region shot to fame with a starring role in the James Bond film, The Man with the Golden Gun.

Many of these rock islands are hollow and contain stunning, enclosed lagoons open to the sky, created by collapsed cave systems. The area is also known for a local fishing community living on Koh Panyee – a remarkable village built on stilts over the sea, next to one of the limestone pinnacles. This full-day tour allows you to explore this natural wonderland without the crowds.

05:30 - 17:30

It is worth getting up early if it means getting to popular sites before everyone else and having these natural splendours all to yourself for a while – and that is exactly what you will do on this ‘early bird’ tour. Early morning, board the speedboat and set off towards the stunning Phang Nga Bay. Cruise among the limestone pinnacles and rock pillars to find tranquil, hidden lagoons. Get your cameras ready for a visit to the legendary James Bond Island.

For a closer look, climb into your own kayak and glide through waterways framed with mangroves teeming with wildlife. Paddle through hidden caves to enclosed lagoons. Surrounded by towering walls, it feels like you’ve entered into an ancient, secret world.

Visit the unique Panyee Village. Wooden walkways lined with market stalls lead to houses, a school, a mosque and even a floating football pitch – all built on wood and concrete pillars in the shallow water. Take a walk through the village to see this unique feat of informal engineering up close. The villagers live a humble life, making their money from tourism and the traditional fishing industry.

Lunch is included and there are plenty of stops for swimming throughout the day.
