James Bond Island, or Khao Ping Kan, is the must-see in Thailand, and it is considered one of the travel bucket lists for many travelers. What makes this Island special?
Firstly, the iconic standing limestone in the middle of the sea “Khao Ta Pu” (Meaning Nail Island). It was chosen as one of the locations for the 1974 James Bond movie “ The Man with the Golden Gun.” Since the film was released, the iconic limestone has become a popular tourist destination. Nowadays, it is forbidden for the boat to approach near Khao Ta Pu as to prevent erosion of the limestone rocks. However, the Island area is still open for everyone to take pictures with this iconic place on the beach.
