After the James Bond Island trip, this is where they bring you for lunch. The food wasn't too bad but the best part was being given around an hour to explore the floating village. It's easy to get lost but the locals will help direct you back to the launch. Scooting through the back of a shop, you find yourself... More

We booked an excursion that traveled through Phang Nga Bay which stopped at Koh Panyi for lunch. Wish we had more time to explore. The Mosque is the obvious center point of the town but we couldn't make it there and back before our tour left. It was very easy to get lost in the labyrinthian streets that make up... More

We came here to climb, recommended by a local guide, and the climbing didn'd disappoint. Getting to the bsae of the Cliff took a little effort bashing through a bit of the jungle, but once we got going, the routes were manageable, mostly already protected. On the way out, we hung around the village, had lunch and overall a great... More

Visited here as part of a Phang Nga Bay tour. This was the final stop of the tour. Lunch was provided here which was reasonable. We then had about 15 minutes to wander the village. The only site within the village that looked to be worth visiting was the mosque which we were told was too far away to get... More

The food was not great and when we asked for the items that were decent to be refilled they said they were finished. The bathrooms were disgusting. Water alk over the floors and pans and no toilet paper in the... More

This place is built beside the Panyee Island, where a mosque is the main attraction. The rest of the facilities, shops, restaurant, even school is built on a floating platform. Some out of woods and some out of concrete. Some of the wooden ones may be destroyed by the Tsunami, and therefore rebuilt with concrete. Its a great experiences, while... More

Very different experience. You will see full society established on an island. restaurants, shopping, homes, schools, mosque, Basket ball and football court , museum and what not. If you are open to eating anything , this place will provide you all options.
