Electrical outlets on a large tree

I spotted this in Luang Prabang, Laos. I couldn’t really understand why.

A few days later I visited the night market which is along this street and they string up electricity for all the vendors. That still doesn’t exactly explain why someone decided to mount an electrical outlet box on a tree trunk but I do believe it was put there in support of the electrical needs for the night market.

Banana tree leaves while driving up to Fraser’s Hill, Malaysia. For 20 km (more probably) before you get to the small town of Fraser’s Hill you drive through a nice forest.
