We stopped by the village like many other reviewers as a part of a day trip to Bond Island. All people at our table enjoyed lunch which consisted of mostly thai and some american fast food. I found it funny that guys raved about the french fries being like McDonalds. We asked for refills on mussaman curry, it was excellent.... More

My wife and I visited in December 2014. We were on a private day tour by longtail boat with the Faa Hao tour group out of their private pier in Phang Nga Bay. The tour cost 5,000.00 THB or $155.00 USD for two people. We stopped at James Bond island and then Koh Panyi (the floating Muslim Village). Very nice.... More

That island is not the typical one (sand, beach etc'). It's floating over the water of Phang Nga Bay, just near the famous James Bond Island. It's worth the stop if ypu already traveling in the bay and the tour boats will probably stop there for quick tour and meal. I suggest getting there by private boat sailing from Tha... More

Let me tell you the story of Koh Panyee first... About 300 years ago, some families of fishermen from Indonasia ventured in different directions, looking for better places for fishing and eventually settling down. The pact was that if a family does manage to find such a place, they would put a white flag on the top of the hill.... More

We were taken to the Floating Muslim Village as part of a speedboat trip to Bond Island. We had not realised we were eating there and thought the hour we were given was to including eating. So most of our time was spent exploring the floating village. Good choice. You come up the pontoon and actually enter the village by... More

Very impressive how people live there, the way they are building and living makes it special in its kind, can go for that during a trip for the different islands..

Poor, unfriendly service from restaurant staff, especially compared to other parts of Thailand. No smiles, no talking, just throw your food on the table, and push you out the door. My mobile phone was stolen from the rest room, when there was no-one in the restaurant but us and maybe 12 other people, all of them local tour operators or... More

It is astounding to see a whole village built in the sea , it is even more amazing to see their facilities and how they operate sooo normally. BUT beware - it is VERY expensive and the inhabitants or sales ladies are not always too friendly .
