Abstract

Much has been written and researched on the more permanent, monumental and land based urban structures that form the ancient cities of Southeast Asia. In broad strokes, the monuments of Pagan to Hue and Angkor Wat to Borobodur have been captured on ink and print and stands as testimonies to the grandeur of Southeast Asia. This paper shifts the focus from the more permanent land-based monuments and explores the seldom discussed urban complexes of the water world of the vast Asiatic archipelago that forms the straits and island gateways for seaborne traffic between the Indian Ocean and the Eastern Seas.
