Koh Panyee

Koh Panyee, also known as Ko Panyi, is a giant limestone cliff located at estuary of a river along the coast of Phang Nga Bay, on the way to James Bond Island. The limestone rock became famous thanks the Muslim village built on stilts about 200 years ago at the feet of it. Only a very small part of the village, as where the mosque is built, is on solid ground, the rest grew on stilts and slowly continues to grow. Koh Panyee is really a complete village with a school, police station, a small health centre and a mosque. The resident population consists of about 1,700 people, all descendants of two Malaysian nomadic seafaring families, who moved here from Java, Indonesia, at the end of the 18th century. The central part of village is a concrete floor connecting dozens of small souvenir shops, and from there, a narrow maze of uneven planks lead to the population’s houses. Near the main piers there are dozen of seafood restaurants where you can enjoy a good soup Tom Yam Kung or other dishes based on fish. Koh Panyee is a unique village full of life, colours, lights and smells, and offers plenty of photo opportunities. Nowadays this is one of the main attractions on tours of Phang Nga Bay from Phuket or Krabi.
