Jutting up out of the waters of Phang Nga Bay on the western coast of Thailand is the small island of Ko Tapu. It’s also known as James Bond Island because scenes from the 1974 movie The Man with the Golden Gun were shot there.
Since it draws money-spending tourists, local residents are comfortable with the new name. Visitors cannot readily climb it, but boats take people right up to the limestone cliffs and the caves carved into them. You can see why Bond’s nemesis Francisco Scaramanga chose it as a hideout. Provided that you have sufficient supplies, it might also be a serviceable zombie apocalypse shelter.
