The unparalleled scenery of Phang Nga Bay offers dramatic ochre and amber-hued limestone outcroppings contrasting vividly with the starling blue of the ocean. Your sightseeing will begin with a journey north, where you will cross to the mainland over the Sarasin Bridge. Soon you’ll reach spectacular Phang Nga Bay and board a boat to cruise through this picture-perfect waterway. Your boat also passes Khao Ping Gun (James Bond Island), where the movie The Man with the Golden Gun, was filmed in 1974. Tidal conditions permitting, you’ll stop at Koh Panyi water village, where 400 houses are built on stilts and are connected by wooden walkways. A buffet lunch will be served at the Phang Nga Bay Resort, which overlooks the nearby mangrove forest and towering hills. Afterwards, you will visit Wat Tham Suwan Kuha, a cave temple that dates back more than 200 years. Numerous Buddha statues, standing, reclining or seated are here for you to view. On the way back to the ship, there will be time to shop at a local handicraft center.
