Put my chips next to yours. There's an rock (islet?) offshore of Ko Khai that matches the one seen over Amani's shoulder. (photo source)

So you think Ko Panyi is the pitstop? Someone made a model of it for GE: enable "3D buildings."

Pit Stop:  yes!

This shot was taken from the end of the dock just like this Panoramio (it's worth zooming in on so go to the source!)

 :lol:  Or, maybe the mat is on the soccer field!   :lol3:

Detours first....

Sure looks like it! My only question would be if the Roadblock and Pit Stop are both on Ko Panyi, why is Cathi waiting on the speedboat for Bill to complete the task?

That is indeed the same company that Prophet found earlier: Nonthasak Marine. Their dock is the one that Chateau posted just above you.

Finally got an exact map match! (And we knew it was South Thailand since Episode 1...) South is oriented up in these maps. The island's called Ko Raya Ring.
Found out that Neobie in Chinese means "f*king awesome"! No, really. Look it up!

I already posted this on Page 1, but not with your screenshots! Bing Maps calls the island 'Koh Nom Sao'.

I remember Dom El (and credit goes to you)! Bing had it mislabelled which is why I got confused and couldn't match the shot, plus Google sends you to all sorts of crazy places if you try to search for Ko Nom Sao.

According to this and this Ko Nom Sao is the little pair of islets 3km to the northeast of Ko Raya Ring, which is the big island.

Good find! This is where the big name map sites let you down.. Its always better to trust a traditional hand-labelled map!

I couldn't make any sense of the Bing link either.  It gives a map of the entire Earth and asks:

Quote
Did you mean:

    A Ko Panyi, Phangnga, Thailand
    B Ko Panyi, Phangnga, Thailand


 :lol:  I though it was just my PC

But I still don't see where the cliff for the Roadblock is.  Could be Phi Phi since the boat company talks about it.

Okay, that's the first and last time I'll ever use Bing Maps!  :lol:

But it looks like the Muslim stilt village is set against a backdrop of towering limestone cliffs.
