Ko Panyi – Fishing Village (Phang Nga, Thailand)


Ko Panyi is a small island in Phang Nga, Thailand. It is mostly a fishing village (and a tourist attraction) populated by a close-knit community of muslims. It’s often referred to as the “Muslim Fishing Village” on tour routes. The people are quite friendly (almost too friendly since they’re really trying to get you to purchase some of their wares), and it’s interesting to see how they go about their daily lives in the small community. You can visit the school and see the children learning, playing soccer, or eating lunch. The waterfront is especially eye-catching with all of the fishing vessels and nets waiting to head out to sea to haul in their next catch.
