There is one distinct beautiful place in Phuket, Thailand where Kim Kardashian took a very sexy and very envious selfie with a background of James Bond Island aboard a yacht. As mentioned above, the Iniala would book you for such activities themselves to lessen the hassle of making reservations yourselves.
This magnificent island is located at Phang Nga Bay. The bay stretches up to about four hundred square kilometers and has been home to over a hundred islands which were recognized in The Guiness World Book of Records for its exceptional beauty and their freakish forms. James Bond Island, with its signature rocky pinnacle, has been the most prominent among all the islands in the area. Luckily, it is now under national park protection and as a result, no boats of any kind are permitted to travel too close to the island because of its risky position being big on the upper part and relatively slender at the bottom. The two best ways to view James Bond Island are from boats, from the small beach located on Koh Ping Ghan or, since this is a Kardashian vacation trip, like that of Kim’s way which is aboard a luxurious yacht. Don’t forget to snap a selfie while you’re here at paradise!
Starring Roger Moore and Christopher Lee filmed in 1974 “The Man With the Golden Gun” was shot here at Phuket, Thailand and you yourselves can visit it and be amazed at how wonderful this place is! You can silently kayak through secret lagoons like you were in heaven and small passageways that open to majestic caves that will sure excite your senses. You may also go swimming, sunbathing, and snorkeling at Lawa Island. Truly, time spent on this vacation is not one you surely wouldn’t want to miss. It is just extraordinarily amazing and like that of a dream come true.
The island was first recognized and gained its mark as one of the must-visit places in the tourism scene through the James Bond movie. A distinctive feature of the bay where it’s located in the number of sheer limestone cliffs vertically sprouting out of emerald-green waters. It is where Kim shot her selfie and made all the women wish that they were spending some vacation time at the exact place.
The weird “Why doesn’t it fall over” outline of James Bond Island, also known as Koh Tapu or Nail Island, by the way, is also located near Koh Ping Ghan which is surrounding the island gives it a magnificent picturesque view. Be warned, though. It could get crowded with tourist boats during the high season.
Another activity that the Kardashians engaged in while spending their family vacation in Phuket Thailand is visiting the Wat Phra Thong Buddhist temple which located near the Thalang District Office north of Phuket Town. It is where Kris and Kendall Jenner spent some peaceful time and prayed to Buddha for some tranquility with their family’s controversial and full-of-drama realities. This temple is famous for its half-burried golden Buddha statue named Luang Poh Phra Thong or Golden Buddha located within its grounds. Another interesting monument is the Wat Phra Phrud also known as the Temple of the protruding Buddha”.
The temple has been believed to be one of the oldest of its kind in the area. It has received several visits from famous personalities apart from the Kardashians namely King Rama VI on 1909 who at that time was the crowned prince of Thailand and was also the one who put a name to the temple.
The Wat Phra Thong is not so hug compared to other temples in the area but composing of a number of buildings and styled with colorful designs, it is absolutely a place worth visiting. The prominent tourist attraction in the area is of course, the half-burried Buddha which was believed to be untouchable in that every person who has tried to dig out the magnificent Buddha were cursed. Legend tells that a farmer boy who tied his buffalo to an object that looked like a post in an open field was cursed and fell very sick that resulted to his death along with his buffalo. Prior to the incident, the farmer boy was believed to have dreamt of the incident and went to check the area that turned out to be the topmost part of the untouchable Buddha.
Many locals have come to dig out the Buddha as well but were only able to attain a small exposed part of the statue and alleged said that they could not dig it up no matter what obstacles they had to take. Since then, the locals built a temple around it when a monk on a pilgrimage was able to located the holy image. The temple has been a spiritual center since then among the locality.
