We stopped here for lunch as part of a trip with BJ canoeing tours. Ate in the main restaurant and the food was lovely. Left us with around 30 minutes to explore which was plenty of time. It is strange to see the school based...More
We have seen a couple other 'floating' fishing villages, so we probably could have skipped this one. It is much more tourist-oriented than the others we have visited, which were actually villages that relied on fishing. But Phuket in general is very tourist-oriented, so this...More
With lots of shops to browse it is easy to get confused and lost. The food buffet has a great selections of Thai food. tour of the self contained island is fascinating. You will also experience a number of aroma's.
We visited this village as part of a tour to James Bond Island. We stopped here for lunch and it was definitely one of the more interesting parts of the tour. The food was very good. Let them know ahead of time if you're vegetarian/vegan...More

Koh Panyi is not actually in Krabi, but rather 95 k.m away in Pang Nga Province close to "James Bond Island". It's about 30 minutes off shore so must be reached by long tail boat. The seafood is so fresh from the nets and expertly...More
In all honesty this was the most uncomfortable we felt all holiday, we did not feel at ease at all - the poverty was very apparent, the smell was quite unpleasant but at the same time it was also mesmerising seeing how the community had...More
I did it with James bond island tour it's small village of Muslim community having Mosque one playground (on water).Tourist guide take you from one end to other end by walking. Don't miss the queue. One time watch only
I did enjoy visiting Koh Panyi and learning about their history and their way of life and they built the “floating island” or “village on the water” with the use of floatable plastic. They have also build mosques, a school, restaurants on water. During the...More

Try contacting Boonchu Pier for a private long tail boat to take you there. Very good service and very affordable way to avoid a big crowded boat. We did a full island tour with them, but I am sure they would be available to just take and drop you off at Koh Panyi for a visit as long as you want to stay there. It is worth lunch and about an hour or two to walk around. Fantastic food with very generous portions and great service.
Yes, the full island hopping tour does go out to all the touristy places but I would still consider it, and the private long tail boat was great for a couple reasons:
1. It is just you and your friends/family
2. Overall it is cheaper than what I was seeing for the speedboat tours.
3. You can leave at whatever time you want, since you don't have to wait for other people. We left at 6 AM, and really avoided most of the crowds everywhere we went, including James Bond Island
Boonchu Pier's number is 093-795-6748. We booked our tour through Alex Taxi Phuket-they have a great website and are really good about emailing. You could send him an email and ask about arranging something specifically to your liking or choose the full day island hopping tour. Included hotel pick up and drop off through Alex.
Probably your hotel could contact the pier too if you want and inquire, might be easier that way.
Hope this helps. Good luck!
