A cooperative scientific project had been set up to promote the local heritage, nomad culture and the Burmese historical and cultural inheritance. The reader will discover ancient rock paintings, the archaeological land marks of the Indian world on its way to Southeast Asia, the colorful history of the region since the first arrival of the Westerners; he will also share the Moken nomads way of life.
