Phang-Nga Town & Ao Phang-Nga/Thailand

Introducing Phang-Nga Town & Ao Phang-Nga

With turquoise bays peppered with craggy limestone rock towers, brilliant-white beaches and tumbledown fishing villages, Ao Phang-Nga is one of the region’s most spectacular landscapes. Little wonder then that it was here, among the towering cliffs and swifts’ nests that James Bond’s nemesis, Scaramanga (The Man with the Golden Gun), chose to build his lair. Wanted assassins with goals of world domination would not be recommended to hide out here nowadays, since the area is swarming with tourists in motorboats and sea kayaks nearly year-round. Much of the bay, and some of the coastline, has now been incorporated into the Ao Phang-Nga National Marine Park.
