Koh Panyi was our first of 5-island hoping on a cloudy day. We were really surprised to the structure built on stilts on the sea, people there, their livelihood options, etc. About 360 fishermen families of Indonesian origin leave there. We only saw women and...More

Stopped here for Lunch as part of a speedboat tor round various Islands. Wish they found somewhere else for Lunch. Food was horrible and the Staff rude. The whole place was dirty. Amazed these tour companies would use such a place.
