The Ko Lanta Sea Gypsies

Sea gypsies are originally from Nicobar, one of the Andaman Islands. In the earlier centuries they lived in boats and had fearsome reputation as pirates. The village of Sang-ga-u next to the national park headquarters is inhabited by sea gypsies.

The offshore islands between Phuket and Penang offered numerous hiding-places and were considered the most dangerous in Asia. So also was the entrance to the Street of Malacca, where Dutch, Spanish and Portuguese traders passed on the way to their colonies.
