Important Attractions

The Myeik (Mergui) Archipelago, situated in the most southern part of Myanmar, contains over 800 wonderful isles. Only the only people living in this wonderful area are the ethnical Moken (Salone) â??Sea Gypsiesâ?, a breed of nomads. Their lifestyle in the town of Moken-Sea Gypsy is very straightforward and has hardly altered over the years.

Up until recently, the Moken were the Mergui Archipelago's sole occupants, using the same fishermen's and boat-building skills that have been in use for many years. These mokens are well qualified in swim and dive. Its way of living and its singular traditions are commemorated each year during the Salone Festival, which usually takes place in February.

It takes place in Majungalet Village on the island of Bocho in Myeik, Tanintharyi section. Each year it is commemorated to encourage sustainable travel and to introduce the salon and the Myeik archipelago as a travel destinations for the global markets, where you can experience authentic and sacred dancing, scuba dive contests and a captivating way of living.

You can also take part in a rowers' competition, folksong and a Moken-fest. Mergui Archipelago is also home to some of the best and least disrupted dive sites in the world. If that were enough, it is the smaller marine environment that is starting to gain appreciation, as diver recognize that there is more to Myanmar than just the big shots and the shelter.

Lobsters, crabs and shrimps of apparently any form, colour and height crawl across the seabed, while squid, spook fish, frogfishes and squid are enjoying the relatively boat-free Mergui water.
