James Bond Island, known originally and locally as Ko Tapu or Nail Island, found fame through the 1974 Bond film "The Man with the Golden Gun". The film starred Roger Moore and Christopher Lee (as the three nippled arch-villain Scaramanga) but it was the scenic topography that helped make the film into a firm Bond favourite. It also turned the previously unknown Phang Nga Bay into a major tourist attraction.

Some travel agencies have organized a subdivision to create tours specifically highlighting iconic landmarks in the world of James Bond where Fleming worked and lived, uncovering HQs of the intelligence communities, SOE, SIS,MI5 and MI6.

Ko Tapu found fame through the 1974 film "The Man with the Golden Gun". Its now referred to as James Bond Island both by locals as well as in tourist guidebooks. (Credit: Wikipedia)
