who transport bamboo. They ship bamboo from the hills (border of Rakhine and Chine states) upstream to the
towns and villages downstream.
They float bamboo rafts down the rivers.
At nights they sleep in the huts like these. These are also the places where people station to harvest nearby
At some places where there are no such places they sleep in a temporary huts on the rafts.
