About Phang Nga
Phang Nga is a quiet rural province whose main town is called Phang Nga Town. Phang Nga Town has a population of around 12,000 and is culturally diverse with descendants of Chinese immigrants living alongside ethnic Thais and people who ancestors were originally from further south in Malaysia.
The area is believed to have been populated for a long time by tribal groups from the Malay peninsula and the name ‘Phang Nga’ was given to the area by King Rama III in reference to the primitive lifestyle of the people who lived there during the time of reign, from 1824 to 1851.
The feature of Phang Nga that draws the majority of the visitors to the province is Phang Nga Bay. Phan Nga Bay is a 400 square kilometre area which steep sided limestone karst mountains rising from the sea and is often described as Thailand’s Ha Long Bay as a consequence. The best known feature of Phang Nga Bay is the dramatically shaped Ko Tapu, which is better known as James Bond Island as it appeared in the film The Man with the Golden Gun.
