Phang Nga’s Landscape by Speed Boat
Phang Nga’s Landscape
by Speed Boat
The towering cliffs of Phang Nga have played an important role in James Bond’s ‘The Man with
the Golden Gun’ and up until today, the landscape has not lost its attraction. Cruise
in style and with speed to one of Thailand’s most famous sites in the south.
WHY THIS TOUR?
An almost surreal landscape emerges straight out of the azure-blue waters; a multitude of karst cliffs raise straight out of the water, each shaped and carved in the eyes of Mother Nature and her natural elements. Phang Nga Bay has not been engraved in many southern Thailand itineraries for nothing as it truly brings out the magic that surrounds greater Phuket.
It is all this and more, when going further afield, which fills a day from early morning until late afternoon with awe and splendour when boarding a speed boat to watch all this from up-close. From blissfully located Muslim villages to the Thai contribution that brought a James Bond movie to unparalleled success, a more than fine example to be introduced to Phang Nga Bay has yet to be designed.
05:15 - 17:00
Your driver for the day will be at your hotel very early in the morning to take you on an unforgettable journey through one of the most unique marine settings in the world. We drive first to Royal Phuket Marina where we board our speed boat that sails through the Andaman Sea to Phang Nga. This cruise will not only be comfortable but also swiftly to ensure your maximize your time around Phan Nga and its fascinating land- and seascape of Phang Nga Bay and avoiding the main tourism stream throughout the day.
During our morning cruise, majestic rocks rise dramatically out of the sea and are interspersed with mangroves and fascinating hidden caves. En route, a visit is made to the renowned James Bond Island, the location for the classic film “The Man with the Golden Gun”; its shape and location still draws visitors from around the world.
The cruise continues onto a private canoe station near Lod Nai Cave where visitors are able to paddle deeper into hidden lagoons and cavern systems through mangrove. This unique touring option is seen as a highlight of the day. Koh Panak is next on the itinerary, yet another untouched gem which leaves many in awe. We end the morning at Panyi Island which is a Muslim fishing village built entirely on stilts in Phang Nga Bay.
The crew sets its compass needle to Koh Yao Yai where a Thai lunch is served between rubber plantations and coconut trees. Before making our way back to Phuket, there will be ample time to swim or snorkel around in the clear waters and sandy shores of the larger of the two Koh Yao islands. We will arrive back at Royal Phuket Marina and onward to your resort. We expect to bring you back in comfort to your hotel at around 5pm.
