  takraw (in the rain)

 

Myanmar

Next to chinlone, the ball game takraw is so popular in Myanmar, that even heavy rain does not put off these men, playing at Kyaihtiyo (fig.).

 

To allow more freedom in movement, the front end of those wearing longyi is brought up and fold between the legs to the back, where it is stuck behind the belt (fig.).
