We were taken here as part of our cruise tour around Phang Nga Bay. It took great photos from the water with the rocks rising behind it, but on the floating island itself I was less impressed, crowded, dirty and a bit smelly. Felt a...More
My partner and I are just back from the floating village, and of all our trip in Thailand, I must say this was one of the highlight of our trip as it was such a unique experience. Knowing that this village built on stilts, literally...More
We stopped here for lunch as part of a trip with BJ canoeing tours. Ate in the main restaurant and the food was lovely. Left us with around 30 minutes to explore which was plenty of time. It is strange to see the school based...More
We have seen a couple other 'floating' fishing villages, so we probably could have skipped this one. It is much more tourist-oriented than the others we have visited, which were actually villages that relied on fishing. But Phuket in general is very tourist-oriented, so this...More

Try contacting Boonchu Pier for a private long tail boat to take you there. Very good service and very affordable way to avoid a big crowded boat. We did a full island tour with them, but I am sure they would be available to just take and drop you off at Koh Panyi for a visit as long as you want to stay there. It is worth lunch and about an hour or two to walk around. Fantastic food with very generous portions and great service.
Yes, the full island hopping tour does go out to all the touristy places but I would still consider it, and the private long tail boat was great for a couple reasons:
1. It is just you and your friends/family
2. Overall it is cheaper than what I was seeing for the speedboat tours.
3. You can leave at whatever time you want, since you don't have to wait for other people. We left at 6 AM, and really avoided most of the crowds everywhere we went, including James Bond Island
Boonchu Pier's number is 093-795-6748. We booked our tour through Alex Taxi Phuket-they have a great website and are really good about emailing. You could send him an email and ask about arranging something specifically to your liking or choose the full day island hopping tour. Included hotel pick up and drop off through Alex.
Probably your hotel could contact the pier too if you want and inquire, might be easier that way.
Hope this helps. Good luck!
