BO CHO ISLAND

Lush and teeming with some of the best seafood in the world, Bo Cho Island is located south of Lampi Island in the Mergui Archipelago. The island’s stunning natural beauty, with white sand beaches and aquamarine waters, is complemented by the simple houses built on stilts near the shore, from which residents keep a watchful eye on their boats and the sea.

Bo Cho Island is a sacred home for the Moken (Sea Gypsy), and a small resettlement zone has been established on the island which has turned into a year-round Moken village of approximately one thousand year-round residents. Visitors going ashore can take in a local culture that is deeply connected to the ocean, where locals employ unique methods for fishing and boat design. On the island there is also a small temple with a statue of the Buddha in view of the bright turquoise sea.

Expedition activities with Silversea Expedition team

Bo Cho Island is a lush island just opposite the southeastern tip of Lampi. In the channel between the two islands lies the Moken village Ma Kyone Galet. Moken (Salone) fishermen find shelter here during the rainy season and some families have made it their permanent home and today we have the opportunity to visit this community, see the large Buddha statue overlooking the bay and experience the local cultures. About 850 people live here on houses built on stilts near the water to keep an eye on their fishing boats.
