The film starred Roger Moore and Christopher Lee but it was the scenic landscape that helped turn the previously unknown Phang Nga Bay into a major tourist attraction in Southern Thailand. ★ Koh Panyee This floating fishing village is one of Thailand's most unique places to visit. It was established over 200 years ago by Indonesian fishermen. Despite the entire island being built on stilts, the Koh Panyee community still enjoys modern luxuries such as electricity, internet connection and running water. ★ Suwan Khuha temple A unique Buddhist temple located inside a large natural cave in a limestone mountain in mainland Thailand. It is a gem unknown to most foreign tourists. The highlight of the temple is the stunning 15-meter-high golden reclining Buddha statue. The dim lighting of the cave combined with limited natural light creates a distinct spiritual atmosphere. ★ Samet Nangshe viewpoint From the Samet Nangshe Viewpoint you have a 180 degree view over the Phang Nga Bay and largest mangrove forest in Thailand. While there may be a small group of visitors at the top, the Viewpoint is still relatively unknown by overseas visitors and is truly a hidden gem in Phang Nga.
