Explore the magical mangrove forest of Ao Phang Nga National Park by long-tail boat. Stop at a fishing village on Pan Yee Island to enjoy a tasty lunch before seeing James Bond Island, where the blockbuster movie, The Man with the Golden Gun, was filmed.

    The tour was good, but unfortunately a bit too expensive. Of course, the tour had a tight schedule, as was to be expected. The kayak tour is not included and costs 100 baht per boat (2 people fit in a boat). But you don't have to kayak, you can also wait on the big boat. On James Bond Island you have about 45 minutes to look around and go into the water. Then we go to the Muslim city that was built on water, the included food was unfortunately cold, but there was enough time to look around.

    The tour was very well organized. The guides were great and very entertaining. The best part for us was the kayak tour. The only point of criticism is that you are forced to tip the kayak drivers here. Unfortunately, some sellers are also very pushy on Pan Yee. The landscape is breathtaking with great photo opportunities. On the way back, a separate taxi was organized for us because our hotel was further out.

    Very nice excursion, all these activities are to be done! On the other hand, we visit only 2 islands, that of James Bond and the one where we kayak, the other islands mentioned are only seen from the boat. The landscapes are just splendid, the problem being the time which is too limited, 10min more will be appreciable to make the visits, because we are obliged to make concessions…
