This capital city is 6 times bigger than New York, but most people haven't even heard about it! 6/29/2016 •

This capital city is 6 times bigger than New York, but most people haven't even heard about it!

The story of this city is so unusual that Naypyidaw deserves to be written about. It is often referred to as a modern ghost town and there are certain reasons for it.


Many are sure that the capital of Myanmar or Burma is Yangon. However, this information is outdated. In 2005, the capital of the country was moved to a new-built city. The government of the country didn’t substantiate this decision, so the true reasons are still unclear.

Looks very modern and very isolated. Not sure about living there, but I would like to visit and see it and then decide.

Spent two weeks in the area in Sept. 2015. There are grocery stores, and mall,, it's quiet, the people are great, friendly, quiet, no traffic. Hotels are modern, the whole area is very clean.

Visited Yangoon two years ago and saw the Shwedagon Pagoda, which was unbelievable, especially at night. The gold and precious gems on the top actually shimmered. None of the guides even mentioned Naypyidaw. Sorry we missed it.
