Phang Nga Bay is located close to Khao Lak in the south of Thailand and is a sight for sore eyes. Renowned for its 300 limestone peaks, some of which stand over 100m tall, this place is best explored by canoe or long-tailed boat via the many caverns and small tunnels with stalactite-lined ceilings. This is also where you'll find Kho Tapu, more commonly known as James Bond Island, made famous after The Man with the Golden Gun was filmed there. You might like to stop for lunch in Kho Panyi Bay, a fishing village built on stilts.
