THE SCENE

Khao Phing Kan is a pair of is­lands on the west coast of Thai­land, lo­cated in Phang Nga Bay, about 45 kilo­me­tres from Phuket. The small nee­dle-shaped is­land (op­po­site page) is of­fi­cially called Tapu, but it’s known as James Bond Is­land be­cause it

ap­peared in 1974’s The Man with the Golden

Gun. The film turned this area into one of the top tourist des­ti­na­tions in Thai­land, so get there early to avoid crowds. While these is­lands are beautiful, the most cin­e­matic mo­ments hap­pen while you’re on the boat tak­ing in the oddly shaped lime­stone tower karsts and moun­tains ris­ing out of the jade-hued An­daman Sea. Top, $320, and skirt, $590, Ulla John­son. Ear­rings, $460, Marni.
