the Moken Village

The Moken Village, also referred to as the Moken Sea Gypsy Village, is a unique community located in the Khao Lak area of Thailand. This indigenous group, often known as the "sea gypsies," has a rich cultural heritage deeply intertwined with the ocean. They are renowned for their seafaring skills and sustainable way of life, relying on fishing and traditional boat building for survival.

The Moken people have a deep connection to the sea and are known for their extraordinary diving abilities, enabling them to harvest resources from the ocean with remarkable precision. Their village consists of stilt houses built along the coastline, providing them with easy access to the sea while protecting them from tidal fluctuations. Despite facing challenges from modernization and environmental changes, the Moken Village continues to preserve its traditional customs and cultural practices.
