What people say

"Consisting mainly of towering limestone cliffs, Koh Panyee is home to a community of villagers living in hundreds of huts, shacks, restaurants, and houses constructed on stilts above the shallow waters that surround the island. The exact number of wooden and concrete pillars supporting this remarkable settlement is unknown, but the village stands as an intriguing and unparalleled example of informal engineering."
"A floating village where homes stand on stilts above the water. Immerse yourself in the local culture as you stroll along the narrow wooden pathways and engage with the warm-hearted villagers."
