Mergui Archipelago

The Mergui Archipelago lies off the far south coast of Myanmar. It’s comprised of hundreds of islands that have coral reefs and beaches. The Mergui is home to the seafaring indigenous Moken people. It’s a heaven for birds, notably the plain-pouched hornbill, as well as marine life like dugongs and turtles.
