The Moken of Ko Surin by Kristin Sherwood

We are grateful to Kristin Sherwood for the lovely blog describing her stay with the Moken of Surin:

“Imagine waking up to the sound of water lapping along the shore, a picture-perfect beach outside your window. The shallow sea is a mesmerizing aquamarine. There are no cars, no commercial fisherman, no loggers to threaten this paradise.

This was my reality for three days, as I visited the island national park of Ko Surin in southern Thailand.

I was one of the lucky few, having come with Andaman Discoveries, an organization whose mission it is to partner with communities to help them to benefit from tourism. As such, I was privileged to spend much of my time with both a Moken guide and a translator, learning about the culture and getting a taste of their way of life.”
