A Moken fishing boat moves past one of the Sister Islands at sunset in Myanmar's Mergui Archipelago. These boats, called kabangs, are the mainstay of the nomadic Moken culture. Each is roughed out in the forest from a single tree, then hauled to the beach to be fitted with a hull and roof. Some take up to four months to build.
