Separated from the waters below only by wooden stilts, the fishing village of Koh Panyee in Thailand is one of those places that almost makes you believe in miracles. It simply shouldn’t be there, why doesn’t it just float away? And yet it’s home to over 1500 people. An absolute marvel to explore, I’ve never seen anything like it.
I couldn’t resist taking some shots of the narrow alleyways that sit almost impossibly between the buildings. This is one of many, and probably the least scary of the lot! Unfortunately we didn’t have time to wander down any of these as the tour we were on moved through fairly quickly. But there was something incredibly intriguing about Koh Panyee that means I’ll have to return one day.
Have you ever visited a town on stilts?! Or a place that almost defies belief with its location? I’d love to hear from you!
