Destination: Koh Pan Yi

08.20 N 098.30 E

Often erroneously referred to as "Sea Gypsy Village".

The only inhabited island in the Pang Nga Bay. There is a village which is entirely built on stilts in the water. One can dine out here and limited provisions are available.

Excellent overnight anchorage with protection from all winds and excellent holding. The rivers beyond Koh Pan Yi are navigable for a shallow draught boat which can take the ground and offer brilliant scenery and excellent opportunities for exploring.

Just north of Koh Pan Yi there are two caves with prehistoric cave drawings. The caves themselves are difficult to access but the drawings can be seen from a boat.
