Phang Nga bay sightseeing tour
From Phuket to Phang Nga by speedboat
Here is a great day trip to fill a non diving day in Phuket. This Phang Nga bay sightseeing tour takes you from Phuket to Phang Nga bay by speedboat in about 40 minutes. It includes kayaking through the mangroves, exploring caves and a short stop (about 30 minutes) at James Bond Island.
Lunch is at the Koh Panyee sea gypsy village with time to explore the narrow stilted walkways and the life that hides behind (check out the floating football pitch with no nets in the goals). There is also time for swimming and relaxing at a quiet beach away from the crowds.
We like this tour because it includes all the popular sights you want to see and photograph. But it is not crowded and you will not feel like you are being herded from place to place. The guides are friendly and fun, the speedboat is modern and never over filled.
