Koh Panyi in Photographs

During December 2014, we did some island-hopping tours in and around Phuket.  One of these hops included the village of Koh Panyi.

Koh Panyi is mostly on wooden stilts and has a predominantly Muslim population. Fishing and tourism is their primary income.

Check out the YouTube video at the end of this post for a feel-good story of their floating soccerfield and history.

Larger pics can be found on my flickr photoset
