The stop in the Muslim fishing village was part of the tour to James Bond island. The view of the island from the sea is beautiful. We only stopped for lunch , which was good and the service was very efficient. There are a few shops with souvenirs near the restaurant and we didn't visit the island. The guide warned... More

Poor planing, smelly, filthy, unpleasant, animal like chicken on the area has skin decease. We wouldn't go back this place ever again. Local Government should do something about this seriously.

Stopped at the village for lunch and then took a stroll. One one hand this was very interesting but on the other it was also quite disturbing as there was just so much trash and poverty Vendors are lined up along the entire walk through this village and everyone is selling the same cheap tourist trap stuff. Some good photography... More

On our way back from the James Bond island we stopped here and enjoyed an excellent lunch. The place is very similar to Venice (Italy) - also built on stilts. We walked after lunch through the market and went to the back of the town near the mosque. Of interest is clearly the historical background of this place and the... More

Then move on to somewhere else. Lunch was directed to a place where the boat guide was given a portion of ticket. We are suckers for a good market but this village had the exact items in every stall. Food was average.

We made a visit to Panyi village on our way to James Bond Island,it was a chance to glimpse the fascinating lifestyle of this fishing village,that is built entirely on stilts over the water.Well worth a visit.

Amazing, an entire village on the water. Beautiful, feels like you are taken back to the 1960's. Rustic, great food, friendly people, a really great experience. Traditional Muslim food and hospitality

Went to Koh Panyi on the way to James Bond Island just as a 30 minute stop. Is a great place for photographers taking pics from the sea and in the village. The children will try to sell you overpriced trinkets.
