James Bond Island Day Trip
Phang Nga Bay
Ko Tapu is a steep rocky monolith, about 20 meters tall. This rock column lies approximately 200 meters offshore of the two-islet pair known as Ko Khao Phingkan The islands are located within the Ao Phang Nga National Park.
Departing from Phuket island, day-tours using longtail boats usually land at nearby Ko Khao Phingkan, where market booths are set up.
Ko Tapu has become a popular tourist attraction since it was featured in the James Bond movie The Man with the Golden Gun in 1974; for this reason, it is also often referred to as James Bond Island (the later 1997 James Bond film Tomorrow Never Dies also includes a scene in Phang Nga Bay, close to James Bond Island).
Scenes from the Bollywood movie Kaho Naa... Pyaar Hai were also shot here
