This is a good place to learn about a different culture so if you are not into that, there is no reason to stop. it is cool to see this place on stilts but you can see from the boat. The restaurant at the very end has great food but there isn't much to see. We had a tour around the whole village, coolest part is the soccer field that was built by the kids and you can take a peak into their schools. It will really make you evaluate your own life and what we take for granted.

I recommend a stop here for adults interested in learning the culture of Thailand but kids will be bored.

We visited the village as part of a day tour to James Bond Island. While it was unlike anything I've ever seen before, I do not care to return. The food at the restaurant was a bit too adventurous for my taste (unidentifiable meats, entire fish, etc). You cannot order from a menu and plates of pre-selected food are just brought to you. Bring a protein bar if you're vegetarian or don't eat seafood. The restaurant is enormous and serves hundreds of tourists; it did not feel authentic and rather just part of a tourist trap. Following lunch, we walked around the village for a brief tour. It was filthy and the heat brought out some interesting smells. We saw numerous sleeping (or dead?) cats, unattended infants/toddlers, and seemingly unfriendly inhabitants. Beware of two women who shove diaper-clad monkeys onto you and then demand money to take them off of you. Overall, an odd experience that didn't feel quite right. Enjoyed the boat ride to and from, but do not care to return.

Had Lunch here after I visited James Bond Island. The food was the basic rice with vegetables, fish, and chicken. There is not much besides the restaurants. Lots of corridors of stores which pretty much sell the same merchandise over and over again. Not much to see. When you look sown as you walk, you can see the water between the boards..lol.

We did this as part of our trip to James Bond island. We stopped here on the way back. The lunch that was included was very good and there were a huge amount of shops through the back of the restaurants.
