Sampan description
A sampan (Chinese: ; pinyin: shnbn; Peh-e-j: sam-pán) is a relatively flat bottomed Chinese wooden boat. Some sampans include a small shelter on board, and may be used as a permanent habitation on inland waters. Sampans are generally used for transportation in coastal areas or rivers, and are often used as traditional fishing boats. It is unusual for a sampan to sail far from land as they do not have the means to survive rough weather.

* Sampans are still in use by rural residents of Southeast Asia, particularly Malaysia, Indon
