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

Most of these photographs were taking at the Damnoen floating market.

Check out my flickr for higher resolution copies of these pictures.

Kwantu Wildlife Photo Set

Last week Saaleha and I spent a few days at Kwantu Game Reserve.  Being a mid-week break, we scored on their pay for 2 nights, stay for 3 promotion. Kwantu has gained a popular reputation with the South African Muslim community. Being Muslim owned & operated makes it a very halal-friendly destination. Along with their 5-star graded accommodation, all meals are included. They have 2 professional chefs in-house and can easily cater for specific diet requirements. During our stay, a group practicing Jainism arrive. The Jain diet is one of the strictest vegetarian diets, this posed no problem for the chefs who created unique and well received meals for the group.
