Phang Nga is most famous for it’s bay with vertical rocky mountains towering out of clam, green waters – along with James Bond island and the water village of Koh Pannyi.

But the land routes through this province are of exceptional beauty also, and are well worth exploring in one’s own car. One can also have a great time driving and visiting the famous water-bound attractions of Phang Nga Bay alone, without joining one of the mass bus-boat tours. It’s easy: just s drive to Phang Nga Bay Resort (see map below), park your car and rent a boat for a couple of hours. The spectacular vertical peaks in the bay are just 15 minutes away.

There are many free maps showing the roads into Phang Nga, or pick up a copy of PHUKET Magazine and follow its maps. The route into Phang Nga province is simple: north leads to the Sarasin Bridge off Phuket Island. As soon as you cross this you are in Phang Nga province. 12 kilometres north of the bridge is a small town and a three-way junction. Turn right. This heads towards Phang Nga Town, then on to Krabi and into a beautiful area ideal for car touring. The routes are well sign posted, there are kilomtre posts along the side of the major roads, petrol is available at regular intervals and if by chance you have trouble, you will find the local people friendly and helpful.

One will not get lost unless you venture off into the rubber plantations and tiny side roads, and since it s not possible to get lost for long, that can be fun.
