My James Bond Island tour finished after visiting two islands, namely, Koh Panyee ( เกาะปันหยี ) and Koh Khao Phing Kan (เขาพิงกัน). Ever since I have watched the advertisement campaign from TMB Bank, I am excited to visit Koh Panyee or Fishing Village in Phang Nga Province. We went there by long-tailed boat: the weather was not on our side as it started raining. As you know for certain, I was scared but intended to go according to tour plan and finally arrived to the island.
We stayed there about 45 minutes and continued our journey to Koh Khao Phing Kan, also known as James Bond Island, after 1974 movie flick “The man with the Golden Gun”. We had 30 minutes to view the famous island and the islet, Koh Khao Tapu ( เขาตะปู ), situated around 40 meters from the shore. I didn’t try to go near this mushroom-like islet, as it was muddy due to changing pattern of the tides. At the end of the day, I couldn’t express how pleased I was to be able to stand still on the ground.
Some of my friends from blogosphere may have seen them million time but if you ask me, I have never ever seen those shell rock formation in my life and thus I wanted to keep in my web journal.
