Bangkok. 16 July 2013. A silver grey Aston Martin DB5, a dry martini, and lots of beautiful women – that is life as James Bond knows it. It has been six decades since Ian Fleming first introduced his secret service agent to the world, since then, he has been handling top secret missions across the globe, and is no stranger to Thailand. Amari invites guests to indulge in ultimate Bond-style glamour, with a package that includes a visit to the movie location of The Man with The Golden Gun.
The island, originally named Khao Phing Kan – now more popularly known as the James Bond island – is located on the west coast of Thailand, a quick long tail boat ride away from the Krabi mainland. In the movie, the island portrayed the private island retreat of an affluent assassin and was used as the picturesque backdrop for the infamous pistol duel scene. To the delight of many avid Bond fans, the island still embodies its character and a walk around is sure to bring back memories from the fondly remembered movie. If a truly private Bond experience is preferred, Koh Tachai is an attractive alternative. Referred to as Thailand’s Maldives, this island is famous for its pristine beach and breathtaking views much like Khao Phing Kan in 1974 when the movie was filmed and before the tourists discovered it.
After a day of tracking Bond’s footsteps, return to Amari Vogue Krabi where style and exquisite comfort await. The resort is a paradise of nature, elegantly designed in Northern Thailand’s Lanna style. From the magnificently landscaped pool and jacuzzi to exotic seaside dining, this lavish resort could even captivate the secret service agent himself!
