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.

It's a shame this place is so busy, the food was good and it was interesting to see a different way of life. I saw some dying seahorses in a tiny tank, it really put a dampener on things. I feel like some of the islands need better management.

The former fishing village, which turned into a tourist attraction. The visit is part of the many boat trips. Very good food at the restaurant. Number of souvenir shops.

I went to this place as part of a James Bond Island tour. I was quite fascinated by the whole idea of a floating village. Hard to wrap my western brain around it! We stopped there for lunch which was really dissappointing. It was such a great opportunity to experience local food but we got deep fried shrimp and chicken.... More
