This full-day tour takes you to one of the most unique and inspiring spots on earth, Phang Nga Bay. Considered by many a must see sight, there are very few places in the world with a landscape like Phang Nga. Begin your day with a drive to the island's north end and then cross to the Thai mainland via the Thep Krasettree Causeway. Following a brief stop at a rubber tree plantation, drive to Phang Nga National Park where you board a motorboat and begin your unforgettable cruise through the spectacular and seductive limestone scenery. Established in 1981, the park lies in the sheltered pale, milky-green waters northeast of Phuket Island, and is the location of more than 80 awe-inspiring islands. These unique karst formations were created when a collision of great magnitude occurred over 300 million years ago, between the Indian subcontinent and mainland Asia. The force of the tectonic plates pushed and rotated what is now Thailand and Malaysia, forcing the limestone above the surface. The resulting karst formations appear like fairy castles out of the sea, all different shapes and sizes. Vegetation on the karsts has evolved to withstand long periods of dryness and an almost complete lack of soil. See spectacular flora hanging off the vertical rock faces and cascading down the cliffs, including palm trees, bamboo, ferns and wild orchids. During your cruise enjoy a photo opportunity at the small island of Kao Ping-Gan, where part of the James Bond adventure, The Man with the Golden Gun, was filmed.

Visit Koh Panyee, a small island with a picturesque village extending out across the water, resting precariously on small pilings. It is inhabited chiefly by Muslim fishermen who originally migrated from Indonesia. Cut off from the mainland and most modern amenities, their unique culture has existed for more than a hundred years. After cruising through magnificent mangrove forests and small grottoes, your boat stops at the local resort. Following lunch, drive back to Phuket Town and the ship.
