    The place itself is very interesting. Village on stilts, Chapel, around the sea and the Islands, Internet, kindergarten and school! How nice. And a lot of cats. In the village live very neljubeznye people, gloomy, viciously looking) lunch in this village is something. The water was to the taste of rust and don't know what else, food is simply unbearable. Served it as dogs. I want to believe that these people simply do not want to let tourists, rather than the entire village of evil sea Gypsies.

    Canteen to tourist. We stop for vs vs restored during your excursion the waitresses are not very friendly. The place is nice because on stilts. And too expensive for the quality. For info. No alcohol.

    Depressing place, if you are interested in viewing marine pollution & junk trinklets along with sewage smells go to this place. The highlight was the happy little children.  more »

    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.

    Just a former fisherman village and now tourist place. View from water is much more interesting than inside.

    Small island with a lot of restaurants and great market with small shops for tourists. In 10 min. you can go to the other side of this Island.

    Panyi Village is a floating Muslim village near the James Bond Island with its famous Floating Football Ground. It is accesible by small boats only. I found it to be more of a tourist trap. The village is not exactly floating as most of it is built on stilts over the water. The village conditions are very slum like. The School and Football Ground are definitely interesting sights but not worth the long journey from Phuket. Despite the fact that so many tourists visit this place, it is sad to see such deplorable conditions of the locals who live here. Instead of encouraging such slum tourism, I feel it's much better to visit the scenic Phi Phi Islands instead.

Where to stay in Mai Khao

While there are plenty of accommodation options in Mai Khao, be sure to book well in advance if you're traveling here in high season: January is the most popular month. Look for guesthouses and hotels in the northern part of the region if you enjoy sightseeing, long walks, and relaxing in pristine nature. Be sure to conduct a lot of research before you set off or book anything, as a lot of websites can contain false or misleading imagery. Budget-friendly options in Mai Khao include camping--camping areas are abundant here--as well as bungalows. However, those who want to splurge on their beach retreat will find opportunities to do so in Mai Khao's holiday resorts and hotels.
