Sitting on board a long tail boat, sultry warm sea wind blowing in your face and wave hopping in the azure blue seas of the Andaman as you head out to some of the most exotic island destinations in Thailand. How does that sound to you? A dream holiday for sure! When you visit the province of Krabi in Southern Thailand, this is one of the must do things while in Krabi, island hopping to the famous James Bond Island
You can arrange for these island visits through thaitourismguide.com as part of their island trips in Krabi packages. Some package is only for James Bond Island, which is an almost full day tour and sightseeing of James Bond Island with visits to the sea gypsy village and another small island to spend some time snorkeling or diving. Most of these Island hopping tours in Krabi also do include lunch and transfers so you need not worry about how to get there or what to eat, just hop on the boat and take a leisurely cruise around the islands and bays for a great time out at sea! Just make sure you have your sea legs about you because it can be quite a bumpy ride!
There is nothing much else to do in Krabi except for these highlights to visit the islands and the surrounding marine parks but that is the attraction of Krabi! It is a place where you can spend quiet time, get back to nature, enjoy all the plethora of exciting and exotic marine life in the marine parks and laze around the beach all day or even go scuba diving all day! James Bond Island is a must go, not so much because of the popularity of the James Bond film but because of the unusual rock formations at the beaches around the island and also to actually see with your own eyes the natural beauty of the work of Mother Nature more so that to hope and see James Bond on the island! It is always better to book your tours of James Bond Island and Koh Lanta ahead of time especially in the peak seasons of November till March.
Koh Lanta on the other hand is a beautiful serene island with beautiful white beaches, swaying coconut palms and wonderful coral reefs dotted around the waters of the island. It is home to some of the most exotic marine life and coral species that you can see without actually needing to go scuba diving. For the avid diver who can’t get enough of a nitrous high, this is a diver’s paradise no matter how many times you come back here! You can also make arrangements for scuba diving lessons in Krabi with Koh Lanta as one of your destinations or hire a boat for a few days of full board to Koh Lanta for scuba diving or full board to Koh Lanta for sea fishing, whichever is your preference but make sure you do not miss visiting these two places while you are in Krabi!
