To recap and get some final considerations

Phuket Sea Trips. Visiting Phuket we always suggest to chose at first a tour to Phang Nga bay and James Bond island, we always consider this destination as the first must-see.

The island of James Bond was known as Ko Tapu. Its fresh “Hollywood” title was obtained after it was picked by the director as a shooting location for the movie about the adventures of secret agent 007.

Thus this island with its own odd shape (from the form of a “column”) became renowned and also quite appealing for tourists. The Ko Tapu is too little, it’s not possible to land on it, and that means it’s possible to admire it in the neighboring island Khao Ping Khan, which can be currently known also as the islands of James Bond.

The entire trip of these islands will require just half an hour. In this period tourists create a memorable photograph of Ko Tapu, purchase memorabilia on the regional markets and stroll throughout the islands.

If possible on your schedule and you have a passion for sea trips than go for a second tour, a famous Phi Phi island tour. You will simply find many solutions for your Phi Phi island day trip on the dedicated pages from this website.
