The first stop is Hong Island, one of the best islands near Phuket, where you'll explore the protected coves by canoe. After that, visit James Bond Island or Ko Tapu, made famous as the Bond villain’s island hideaway in the movie “The Man with the Golden Gun”. Get your camera ready and strike a pose, as this is, hands down, the most photographed feature in Phang Nga Bay.When you've worked up an appetite, you'll be taken to Panyi Island, an actual floating island that was entirely built by and is home to a Thai Gypsy Village.
