Know More about this tour

After hotel pickup by minivan, travel about one hour north of Phuket to Suwan Kuha Temple, located in the province of Phang Nga. Along the way, your guide shares informative commentary about the region.

When you arrive, walk into the lofty cave that shelters Suwan Kuha Temple to admire an elegant reclining Buddha statue that measures 45 feet (15 meters) in length, as well as a chedi (Buddhist stupa) and other statues that decorate the cave temple. Snap photos of wild monkeys that hang around outside, but watch out they'll steal any food-like items!

After 30 minutes at the temple, continue your day trip to the nearby pier, where you'll step into a longtail boat for about four hours of touring Ao Phang-Nga National Marine Park (aka Phang Nga Bay) by water.

First up, cruise over to the island of Koh Panyi, where a fishing village sits at the base of towering limestone cliffs. Founded more than 200 years ago by Malay fishermen, the Muslim village consists primarily of buildings that sit on stilts over the water. You have about one hour here to enjoy a Thai lunch at a rustic restaurant with your guide and spend free time checking out the village. Don't miss the floating soccer field, the ingenious invention of local soccer-loving kids.

Next, continue by longtail boat to Koh Khao Phing Kan, aka James Bond Island. Famous for its role as a filming location in the 1974 James Bond movie The Man with the Golden Gun, the island features sculptural rock formations and a sandy beach.

From James Bond Island, hop over to Talu Island for a guided 30-minute tour in sturdy rubber canoes. Then switch back to the longtail boat to return to shore, where you'll board your minivan for the ride back to Phuket for hotel drop-off.
