4 miles from Lampi Anchorage ‘A’
Enter the passage either side of the small rock island and south of the drying rock in mid-channel. Anchor in 7-10 metres on a mud and sand bottom off the eastern end of the small village. The currents can run up to three knots at mid-tide, so put out plenty of chain.
This village is the only habitation in the area and is definitely worth a visit. The local monk at the Buddhist temple is a very welcoming and interesting character.
A local boat builder has recently set up shop behind the bridge in the village. He is constructing traditional Moken boats that are being hand-sawn from trees on site. Take your camera.
