Ko Panyi Village Phang Nga Bay
Tucked away in the turquoise waters of Phang Nga Bay in southern Thailand is the hidden gem of Ko Panyi Village. This small fishing village is built on stilts and is home to a largely Muslim community who have been living there for generations.
Despite its remote location, Ko Panyi has become a popular tourist destination in recent years due to its unique architecture and laid-back atmosphere. Visitors can explore the narrow alleyways and wooden houses of the village or take a boat ride out to see the nearby James Bond Island.
The village has its own soccer team which competes against other teams in the area. The team is made up of players from the village, and they train on a makeshift field in the village. The team has been successful and has even won a few tournaments. The villagers are very proud of their team, and they support them wholeheartedly.
Whether you’re looking for a secluded beach getaway or an exciting day trip, Ko Panyi Village is definitely worth a visit!
