Myanmar, the land of 1000 pagodas

The TV series “Grenzenlos – Die Welt entdecken” featuring “Myanmar, the Land of 1000 Pagodas” was aired on Saturday, March 31 at 7PM on SAT1. Here you can meet Ken Schluchtmann on board of SY Meltemi, a modern catamaran from BurmaBoating.com, exploring the Mergui Archipelago along Burma’s southern coast. It’s seven years Ken travels to this country which only recently opened to tourism and since then he is capturing the ongoing change with dedicated photo reportages.

He met the Moken, one of the few remaining hunter-gatherer populations in Southeast Asia who have made the sea their home. In Myanmar there live approximately 3,000 Moken on the 800 island of the Mergui Archipelago of overwhelming beauty but yet one of the least touristic places in South-East Asia because of the long closure of Myanmar’s frontiers.
