We went there as part of a day excursion. The food was simply mouth watering if you love sea food. Soo fresh. My husband is usually allergic to prawns but the I guess because of the fresh prawns nothing happened to him! There isn't much to see on the island. Generally all conducted toys from phuket or krabi take u... More

We stopped at this village on stilts as part of the James Bond Island tour. Considering the main income for this village is tourism it is disgusting. There was dog and cat faeces everywhere, the mud beneath the village was littered with debris, old carpets, bay buggy's, banana skins and many other types of waste and debris. Then they try... More

A floating, Muslim village located within the Phang-nag National Park. Even though the village is built on stilts over water, this community of about 1700 people from Indonesian decent, functions just as every other village would. There is a school, a Mosque, a post office, a soccer field, internet and Telefon Service, a even an ATM. This used to be... More

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

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.
