Rakhines reside in western Rakhine coast, they are closely related to Burmese proper, though their form of Burmese language varies from the language of the Ayeyawady Valley, notably in the retention of the 'R'sound which in Burmese proper has been replaced by 'Y'. 

By religion they are Buddhists. Total populations over 2 million and Sittway Town is the most populated place. Rakhines and Bamars are living in delta region, Yambyai and Man Aung islands.
