Moken boats

Visiting the village of Palua Tone-Tone

The road trough the settlement



The road through the settlement was not very long, but really hot. There were busy people everywhere, even though the shops and their equipments where sometimes different from what we know.

Short refreshment along the road. Again, children's chairs do for the Burmese and so they do for us.

The shorelines of busy places seldom are the cleanest area of the town. Also, we've found pretty dirty beaches where nobody lives. But the amount of drift waste found here at low tide was impressive to us. The sight is even stranger, as people seem to like a nice environment and have their potted plants and orchid baskets right next door.
