  • We only stopped here for about twenty minutes on our way back to Phang-Nga town after our tour of the whole bay area. There were few tourists so late in the afternoon. Full of touristy trinket and clo...  more »
  • This floating village is charming to see the outside fe. On the other hand, the visit of the village almost a bit disgusted me... Is not cleanliness that reigns... Fortunately we had not planned to eat at this place. But I still do not regret the visit!

  • This was our lunch stop during the Hong island tour, everything looks great at first until you walk through the alleys. The smell is overwhelming and considering we had just ate lunch we couldn’t get ...  more »

  • Horrible!!! Dirty, stinky, smelly, small and lots of beggars! Go there if you want to feel sick to your stomach, not eat and maybe get some sea Gypsy sickness. One of the Worst places I've been to in my life. 3 Families started the village years ago, now theres around 100 families living there. Do you have any idea the inbreeding going on in there?! Every second person we saw there was Sick! Children cant stop asking for money. The stench is something out of this world. They let you eat at the docks before you walk through the village, since I don't think any one would eat anything if they walk through that flee infestest, virus breeding dump. I Live in Africa and I was Praying to go back to my country after walking through there. Do yourself a favour and rather hire a private long tail boat and go to a beach or hire a scooter or something. Go there if you want to catch sea gypsy Aids or something
  • Remarkable community. Floatation solution for our changing environment. If you're in the neighborhood I highly recommend you drop in. Thickly settled and not necessarily for the claustrophobic, but a very unique living environment. Now with a soccer pitch I see.
  • Worst experience in the whole of phuket Thailand!!! I got seriously ill with all the bacteria and viruses and inbreeding !!! Dirty, more like filthy... terrible smell, locals are rude and shopping is super expensive compared to the inland!! Would not recommend to my worst enemy !!! Once you arrive on boat and go to the restaurant.... everything seems great and delightful but when you go into the market you wish you never ate the food at the restaurant or even set foot in that place!!! Ended up sitting in the restaurant waiting for rest of tour only to see the buffet meal gets topped up waiting for the next group of tourists ... leaving the bottom layer of the food lying there for God knows how long !!! Lots of beggars and sick people on the island .... with no fresh water and no toilets ..... please make sure to wear a mask if you are truly considering going to this village .... better to look from the outside than to actually set ur feet in there !!!
  • Very interesting place. Good shopping-better than the main land with better prices. Not good for food though. Worth a visit. Must stay longer than 1 hour though.
  • Not fishing village anymore. A floating flea market on water would be better name. Also double prices for food compare to anywhere else nearby.
