Visiting Myeik (Mergui) Archipelago, Burma (Myanmar)
Mergui (Myeik) Archipelago is a wonderful archipelago off the southern tip of Burma, near the Thai state. Getting into Burma is in Kawthaung, and it is then a brief boating trip to these Illyllands. More than 800 of these untouched, untouched archipelagos, home to the lake glyphs or Moken, were once notorious for their pirating.
Records of these saltwater gays dipping to a depth of over 60 meters, with cliffs bound around their waist and breathed through an inner tube kept above the depth.
Visiting Pahtaw Island, Myeik, Burma
Recently I stayed a few nights in the South of Myanmar, in the municipality of Myeik. MYIK may have industries, but the center of the country, like all Burma's cities, was busy and amiable. There is a major street running alongside the water alongside a street, and beyond that there are couches and long side streets full of happy, inviting people.
Off the Myeik coastline lies the Mergui Arcipelago, more than 800 islets with pristine sandy shores, mangroves, coral riffs and the Moken, sometimes referred to as sea gypsies. It will only be a question of getting the administration and the locals to see what kind of possible money crowd this is, and the big thing will begin.
This is the policemen's office on the isle. There were no sand dunes, mangrove, coral or tokens, but I had a marvellous days between peagodas, towns, shipyards, saw mills and brick factories, with a 12-year-old kid who chose to join me, and later a 17-year-old girls who also came.
I didn't seem to care that I didn't know Burmese, or that he didn't know English. but it was cute that the linguistic barriers didn't play a role. Eventually we came to the isle' s Catholics, which he liked to show me. Then we walked on through the town and stopped to take photos of children, cottages and the apparently regional theater!
That could be the only TV in the city. Some of the children were upstairs in an airy area, so we took a little rest. The pagoda'hti' (umbrellas) and the beachhouse. All three of us chose to go to the lying Budda, which is seen from the other side of the waters in Myeik.
We crossed this spooky old deserted plant on our way, but I couldn't find out what had been made or worked there, and the children couldn't tell me. Eventually we made it to the lying Buddha, who to my amazement was cupped! Love those children!
