Day 2 in Phuket

We had buffet breakfast at the hotel on Day 2..

Our tour guide then picked us up to head over to James Bond Island... We paid about 1,300 Baht per person for the day trip.

Along the way, we saw beautiful rock formation..

Other tourists canoeing through the tunnel during low tide..

James Bond Island has been commercialised with the set up of a few rows of stores...

We were left on the small island which was over crowded.. so that we could walk around and snap photos..

We stood in front of the ledendary rock.. James Bond Island, known originally and locally as Ko Tapu or Nail Island, found fame through the 1974 Bond film "The Man with the Golden Gun". The film starred Roger Moore and Christopher Lee. It also turned the previously unknown Phang Nga Bay into a major tourist attraction.

Later, we went over to a Muslim village to have our lunch...

Right after lunch, we went over for a short swim and later for canoeing :)

We went through dark tunnels as well :) The traffic was quite bad as the place was crowded...

After that, we went relaxing on one of the beaches before returning to Patong...

We had dinner at Da No.1 Seafood Restaurant near Bang La Road... The pineapple fried rice is quite good, Tom Yam wasn't spicy enough.. the overall experience was alright but I would suggest heading to the stall next to it.. LOL

We passed by Bang La Road and returned to our hotel and went for foot massage at Vech Guest House near our hotel.. we loved the foot massage so much! :)
