Things to do in Phang Nga, Overview:

Phang Nga Bay

A distinctive feature of Phang Nga Bay is the sheer limestone karsts that jut vertically out of the emerald-green water. James Bond Island and Koh Panyee are just two of the more famous spots in this bay. By far the best means of enjoying the spectacular scenery, with only brief encounters with the tourist crowds at James Bond and Koh Panyee, is to take one of the boat trips from the northern end of Phuket. A leisurely day trip cruising through the dramatic limestone islands, occasionally stopping to enjoy quiet beaches, is far more rewarding than the standard bus-boat tour.

    What people are saying about Phang Nga Bay

    Really good trip – would recommend to families
    We are a family of four with two kids, youngest is 11. We all enjoyed the trip despite a very early morning. The benefit of staying away from the crowds is worth every penny. Imagine a very crowded beach to the point of unpleasant…… and now double it – that will give you the right idea of how bad it gets. Minibus transfers were a bit messy and confused but got there at the end. The good thing is that the marina is very close to the central Phuket, so takes about 30-40 min. Speedboat driver was excellent – the boat ride was fast but not too bumpy, he definitely was experienced and knew what he was doing. As a result, the boat ride was a major part of the enjoyment. Both guides were very good, personable and considerate. They made the trip very memorable. The cave was absolutely brilliant. Lunch was simple but tasty – can confidently say it will suit every taste. Even my picky boys ate lots. Overall very pleased that ended up picking this tour over others, thank you team!

    Amazing people, places and food with lots of shade
    I was worried when I booked this trip as I was taking my 6-month-old baby with me. I was worried about the heat, lack of shade, access in and out of the boat, access to cold drinks and pushy sales techniques for extras. I didn’t need to worry on any of those fronts. The guides were lovely with my son – and although not a complete breeze – getting in and out of the kayaks was fine. I had my son in a baby carrier the whole time and he loved it. When we were in the sun it was never for too long and there were free drinks and snacks all day long. Then ice lollies and cold towels when we got back. This was an extremely well-organized trip and despite having a 6-month-old, there wasn’t a single point in which I was worried about his welfare. I would thoroughly recommend this trip even if you have small children. Just go prepared and you’ll have a great time.

    Well worth the early morning start and extra money!!
    This tour was absolutely incredible. There were only six people on our tour, so it is definitely worth it to pick an early boat tour (my friend booked a similar tour that started at 11 and had 30 people crammed onto her boat). Every island we went to felt like we had a private viewing, even James Bond which other reviews I’ve read say it can get very crowded the later in the day that you go. Our main tour guide Alex was fantastic. He was very helpful, informative and gave us a personalized experience. The photographer on the tour was also great, he took the time to take high-quality photos for each person, getting all angles and cool filters not only on his camera but also on each of our phones. I was extremely impressed. The islands and limestone stacks/cliffs themselves are stunning. This tour might be pricier than booking at one of the local booths in Phuket, but it is 100% worth the price. You definitely don’t want to miss out on this tour!!!

    Nice trip but too high priced for the value
    Positive points: the boat is really nice, the crew is great, very professional and caring. The lunch is nice and everything is well organized and on time. Negative points: the Island is just too crowded and it is simply a touristic place to sell souvenirs and take a picture. At the second stop the time is very short. Then you stop in the middle of the sea to have a quick swim. No sandy beaches. Overall I would rate isn’t positive but no value for the money.
