Part of the tour when visiting James Bond Island. Fascinating place, a stilted village but quite commercialised with the locals selling souvenirs. A meal was also provided which was quite spicy. The local people are very friendly and helpful, they do not seem to mind...More

Stopped at Panyee Island on the way from James Bond Island for lunch. Interesting little place with about 3000 inhabitants. The shopping area is on stilts with the locals displaying their wares to tourists. Worth a visit.
