Panyee Island is usually the drop point for all groups visiting the Phang Nga bay especially those who visit the James Bond Island. This small island has a village largely on stilts and is focused on tourism. Half of the floating village consists in large restaurants that feed groups of tourists and a souvenir market mainly selling jewelry and other clothing. The island has two homestays that can be a good option to visit the bay and especially James Bond Island before and after the invasion of groups. The small traditional fishing village has changed a lot since the movie The man with the Golden Gun shot here in 1974 even if the fishery is still an important activity for the population that sees tourists flock especially during high season. In general, the guides take you to see the school and its small marine museum and often forget to tell you the extraordinary story of Panyee's football field(see here).

Practical information about Koh Panyee Island

For trips from Khao Lak or Phuket, negotiate the price and don't hesitate to go to several agencies to compare the rates. Prices can vary very significantly for exactly the same service.
Otherwise you can go to Phang Nga by yourself and hire a longtail for around 1500 baht.
For those who want stay in the bay there are two homestays in Panyee Island. A unique experience! But wake up in the early morning to enjoy the place before the tourist rush.
