Named for tourist purposes after the 1974 Bond film The Man With The Golden Gun starring Roger Moore as 007, and traditionally known as Koh Phing Kan, this natural attraction has unfortunately fallen victim the to greedy tour operators and merchants, losing the beauty that made it famous. Visiting this island (with a stopover often not longer than half an hour) usually involves a day-trip that involves stop-overs to the equally jaded Koh Panyi island known for its
charming Muslim gypsy fishing village, a lunch break and other stops such as the Monkey Caves. The water in thiz zone is visibly polluted, the landscape can easily be beat by a multitude of other stunning landscapes around Thailand's south and the throng of other tourists can be as buzzy for some as unbearable for others.
