Mergui Archipelago: Untouched Beauty

Mergui Archipelago is composed of 800 islands. It is one of those areas that remain almost totally unvisited by foreigners. Though now some live-a-board dive boats and yachts venture with special permission into the southern islands from their bases in Thailand, the bulk of the archipelago has remained unvisited since colonial times.

On this journey, we will visit Mokkein islands such as Lampi in the Sullivan Islands. It is inhibited by the Mokkein, often called sea gypsies or pirates. They are a people with their own language and culture. They also entirely live on the sea and have evolved a remarkable way of life.
