Koh Panyi, Ko Panyi, Mueang Phang-nga District, Phang-nga, Thailand
Koh Panyee is a small island community about 20 minutes by longtail boat from Surakul pier in Phang Nga province. Koh Panyee is mostly made up of huge and almost vertical limestone cliffs. The hundreds of huts, shacks, restaurants and houses where the villagers live are built on stilts over the surrounding shallow sea. No one seems quite sure how many wooden and concrete piles hold up this extraordinary community, but it's certainly a fascinating and unique feat of informal engineering.
