Visit Myeik (Mergui) Archipelago, Myanmar (Burma)
The Mergui (Myeik) Archipelago is a beautiful cluster of islands located off the southernmost tip of Myanmar, close to the Thai border. The entry point into Myanmar is at Kawthaung, and it's then a short boat ride to these idyllic islands.
There are more than 800 of these pristine, unspoilt islands, which are home to the sea gypsies, or Moken, who were once infamous for their piracy. There are reports of these sea gypsies diving to depths of over 60 meters with rocks tied round their waists and breathing through an air hose held above the surface of the water.
