Cultural

Visit to the Moken village

The Austronesian people of the Mergui Archipelago, living a semi-nomadic hunter-gatherer lifestyle heavily based on the sea. Their knowledge of the sea enables them to live off its fauna and flora by using simple tools such as nets and spears to forage for food. What is not consumed is dried on top of their boats, then used as barter for other necessities at local markets.

During the monsoon season, they relocate to dry-land into temporary huts and use this time to build additional boats. Normally they live in small hand-crafted wooden boats which serve not just as transportation, but also as kitchen, bedroom, and living area. Aside from ancestor worship, the Moken have no religion.
