James Bond Island
I know I’m late to write this blog but I have never forgotten this day. When Friday is significant for Flashbacks, I thought about flashing back to the little adventurous day that I had in my last Thailand Visit.
On the last day of our Phuket visit, we have decided to go to Phang Nga Bay which is popularly known as James Bond Island since the movie was shot there. In fact, other than the James Bond island, we actually visited many other small and lesser known absolutely beautiful islands near toJames Bond Island.
It was fun, lively, thrilling and close to the nature (we literally kissed the ocean and hills while Canoeing). We got sun kissed at the Virgin Islands and ocean air got our hair messsed. I lost my perfect look but that day wasn’t about looking good. I was a carefree wanderlust that day who never loses her high-spirit. The journey was so full of contrast experiences that there was no dull moment. We were hopping from our yacht to canoe to peacock boat and our energy was flowing.
We visited Naka Island and then moved to Hong Island while canoeing past the Mangrove Forest, hills and Loy Kratong.
Then we moved back to Yacht and went close to Phang Nga Bay, we got to visit to Tapu Island nearby James Bond Island and Ping Gan for some small shopping activity.
Then the wait was over, we got to see the famous rock of Phang Nga Bay or James Bond Island. The place was so serene and the water had a vivacious attraction. The rocks were easy to climb. So we didn’t hesitate to start exploring.
It was a fabulous place to begin with. The place had a gorgeous appeal. On top of that, its tranquility makes it a supreme location. As we visited the place in the month of August, the weather was cloudy and it started raining just after we reached. Yes, we had a small pause but it couldn’t stop us from enjoying the place. Though it was a little challenging for us to start hiking the rocks in a rainy weather but we didn’t give up. Also every difficulty has one positivity, due to the inclement weather, the island was empty and there was no one around when we were there. So we got to make the most of the opportunity of exploration.
After Phang Nga Bay or James Bond Island, we made a short visit to Loy Kratong which we passed through during the time of Canoeing. Loy Kratong is a wonderful place. Here people offer thanks to the Goddess of Water with lighting candles. They make a wish and then float the candles or Krathongs on canals. They believe those Krathongs carry away sins and bad lucks with it and if we say our wish while floating it away, Goddess of Water grants the wish too. It was cute to participate in this activity.
On our way back, we made sure that we visit Panak Island. The island consists adventurous caves which has completed our quest for thrill. We visited the place at the time of sunset and as the environment was getting darker, the intensity of adventure had got to rise up to the right point.
Overall, the escapade was memorable with thrill and enjoyment to the core. It was such an amazing experience that we forgot the time was ticking and we had to catch our flight back home in a few hours.
While coming back to our hotel at Kamala Beach in Phuket, we were literally rushing as we had our flight in three hours time. But all throughout our way back home, we were cherishing the memories of the journey that we embarked on. When we started, we knew it would be exciting. But it was way more than that. It was remarkably thrilling and I recommend everyone to experience this when they visit Phuket.
Lots of love,
Wake Up. Stay Stylish. Repeat.
