Filipino People: Sitangkai, Tawi-Tawi

"Imagine 50,000 people living in houses on stilts on the reef, bridged only by wooden planks and manmade walkways. Imagine an islet less than 1 km square which the predominantly Muslim Samal and Bajao people chose to snub in favor of living on the water that is their life. Imagine a place that is practically the last digit island South of the Philippines and is as close to Sabah Malaysia as the main Bongao island of Tawi-Tawi. This is the glorious place of mystery called Sitangkai." -- Farl
