A weird but wonderful little village built on stilts and situated in the sea. It is surrounded by mangroves so it was one of the few areas not affected by the tsunami as they offered it protection. It is a muslim village and has it's own mosque, and even it's own floating mini football pitch!!! A must see as you... More

Interesting town not only because it's built on stilts, but because it's entirely muslim. I went during low tide, and it was cool watching the mudskipper fish.

Panyi Village is a floating Muslim village near the James Bond Island with its famous Floating Football Ground. It is accesible by small boats only. I found it to be more of a tourist trap. The village is not exactly floating as most of it is built on stilts over the water. The village conditions are very slum like. The... More

Part of the tour when visiting James Bond Island. Fascinating place, a stilted village but quite commercialised with the locals selling souvenirs. A meal was also provided which was quite spicy. The local people are very friendly and helpful, they do not seem to mind you wandering around the village. Well worth the trip

Stopped at Panyee Island on the way from James Bond Island for lunch. Interesting little place with about 3000 inhabitants. The shopping area is on stilts with the locals displaying their wares to tourists. Worth a visit.

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
