How to visit James Bond Island

James Bond Island is a group of very famous islands in Thailand. If you travel in high season, it can be a bit overwhelming, between the heat and the amount of tourism they receive. But usually, the rest of the year, they are a paradise. It is worth visiting Phang Nga Bay, where these islands are located, and in this post I talk to you about how to visit James Bond Island and add some tips to prepare your trip to Thailand.

How to visit James Bond Island


The most comfortable option is with an organized tour. They pick you up at your hotel in Phuket or Krabi, they include round trip transportation, boat, all the stops and you can enjoy this wonderful place.

Khao Phing Kan

Khao Phing Kan means hills leaning against each other in Thai. And this is what you can see throughout the national park. Lush vegetation that eats up the limestone mounds and mountains that jut into the sea.

Khao Phing Kan is a place made up of two small islands northeast of Phang Nga Bay. Both islands are surrounded by nature and the turquoise blue sea is home to thousands of species of fish, dolphins, sea turtles and all types of corals. It is the perfect place to enjoy snorkeling.

When to visit James Bond Island

Thailand has a tropical climate with two distinct seasons, taking into account that the best months to travel to Thailand and visit James Bond Island is from the beginning of November to the end of March. Although that does not mean that you cannot travel to the country the rest of the year, I have often traveled in May or June. And although you have a greater chance of rain, it is still a great experience. The worst months in terms of rain and typhoons are the months from the end of August to the end of October. So if you can avoid September and October.

Jame Bond Island has a tropical marine climate, characterized by frequent rainfall and a stable temperature. The temperature varies from 23º C and 32º C, and the average humidity is 85%.

I hope you enjoy your time in Phang Nga Bay, it is a magical place that you should visit!
