Take a tour of James Bond Island in Phuket, Thailand – part of the World’s Greatest Attractions travel video series by GeoBeats.
Climbing out of the greenish waters of Phuket, Thailand are the unusual islands of Khao Phing Kan and Ko Tapu.
Together, these islands are most commonly referred to as James Bond Island, because of their appearance in The Man with the Golden Gun.
In this movie, Ko Tapu, the odd, pillar-like island, was the location of a large weapon.
This island does exist in real life, but it is not possible to actually land on the island, though boat tours bring you close.
Just a few hundred feet from Ko Tapu is the larger island of Khao Phing Kan.
Though this island has several steep shores, there are beautiful beaches on which to land, with many sights to see.
