This little-known abandoned city in Burma is six times larger than New York

This mysterious town in Burma was built to house millions of people, but less than a million residents live in Naypyidaw today. This large city looks like a real ghost town, and most of the western world has never heard about it.

You can see Burma's empty capital from a bird’s eye view in this exclusive footage:

Have you ever heard about Burma's ghost capital before? Would you like to see the city with your own eyes?

How was such an impoverish nation able to be this large and apparently beautiful city?

I wonder where the money came from to build this! Isn’t this country sort of poor?

I'm going out on a limb by saying there is probably not a high traffic fatality rate in Naypyidaw.
