    'James Bond Island, Thailand. Khao Phing Kan http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Khao_Phing_Kan A lot of people will have seen this with a castle on top & labeled as Castle House Island. Dublin, Ireland - which clearly it's not (how does Thailand look like Ireland - the only thing they have in common is that they sound similar)!!! lol' -- Was in The Man With The Golden Gun (1974). #Islands #JamesBond #Places #Thailand

    Castle house Island, Dublin, Ireland, before the photo manipulation is actually in Thailand.

    James Bond Island - Phuket, Thailand - It is part of the Khao Phing Kan island group, called Ko Tapu by the locals, and now popularly known as James Bond Island, because of its use in a James Bond movie) Yeah this is not in Ireland, and there is no castle on top.

    This is the island that has a photoshoped castle on it labeled as being in Ireland.This is the actual island: 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.

I've been seeing this image quite a bit here on Pinterest and other places lately...people posting the castle house as if it were a real place in Ireland! While I, too, wish it were a real place, it is actually a very nicely done manipulation of a house on a lovely island rock in Thailand! I hate to burst peoples fantasies but it's good to sometimes be reminded that not everything we see on the internet is real :)

Gibbons are unusual because unlike 94 percent of all other primate species, they are monogamous, living in small families composed of a mated pair and up to four offspring. Gibbons are physically independent at about three, mature at about six, and usually leave the family group at about eight years of age.

Kind of reminds me of Downtown Abbey.
