Koh Panyi (Floating Muslim Village)
The limestone island of Koh Panyi is home to a floating Muslim fishing village, built on stilts over the water. The village has a mosque and a school, and is home to around 100 families who make their living from fishing.
Seafood restaurants are a big hit here, and market stalls sell souvenirs, T-shirts and postcards.
An overnight stay in a traditional home with a local family, in a room hovering over the water, is a unique Thailand experience.
Ko Panyi (Floating Muslim Village) is an island in Phang Nga Bay, in Phang Nga province. Krabi is 1.5 hours away by bus.
To get here from Phang Nga, sail over in a traditional longboat.
