Sea-Gypsy Village: The large community of sea gypsies is settled in the village of Baan Sangkha-Ou on the southern tip of the island. Sea gypsies are called in Thai as Chao Le or Chao Nam (Le is abbreviated Thale which means Sea in English and Nam is Water alike), and are known as the minority group of “Thai Mai”, meaning new Thai people. Originally, the sea gypsies of former centuries were living in their boats and were feared as pirates. Nowadays, as being considered eligible for citizenship in Thailand, they began to settle along the coast in their stilt-built houses erected between the water level of hide and low tide. They earn their living on fishing, catching lobster, and other sea food as well as collecting bird’s nest for the Chinese cuisine. Despite the close relation to other village, the sea gypsies do not integrate into Thai population. They still retain their own language, traditions and ceremonies. Their belief in supernatural and traditional spiritual worship is still influential in the community as seen in their traditional ceremony “Loy Ruea” (Floating Boat). The village men will build a symbolic boat and place wooden statues of themselves in it along with nail pairings, hair and popped rice. By performing this ritual, they ask forgiveness from the sea gods and for any offences they have made to the sea. It is believed that all evil is carried away in the symbolic boat. Visiting their village is thus a worthwhile experience. TOP^
