A hand paddled wooden boat crossing the width of the Ayeyarwaddy river, near Bagan, on one evening before sunset. Nowadays there are a lot of motor powered boats of many sizes plying the Ayeyarwaddy (Irrawaddy) river. This boat man is still using his physical and mental power to transport goods and people from one side to the other across the wide width of the largest river of Myanmar (Burma) - the Ayeyarwaddy.

Hand paddled boats are not going away any time since they have their advantages of low cost and environmental friendliness while also retaining a certain level of usefulness in small size transportation.
