The settlement at Ko Panyi was established by nomadic Malay fisherman. The settlement was built on stilts for easy access for fishermen and their families who live on the island. In the 18th century, when the community was established, it was not possible for non-Thais to own land, so a stilt fishing community on the sea was born.
