Phang Nga Bay

Phang Nga Bay

The final trip of my week in Phuket was to head out to Phang Nga Bay.  The reason?  I was desperate to see James Bond Island.  It's one of the most popular tourist attractions in the area, but having been such a huge James Bond fan back in my early years I knew I had … Continue reading Phang Nga Bay
