About Naypitaw

Naypitaw, also known as Nay Pi Taw and Naypyidaw, is a new city which was declared the administrative capital of Myanmar in 2005. Naypitaw’s central location makes it a transport hub, which is perhaps one of the reasons the military government at the time took the decision to construct a new capital in relatively underpopulated part of the country which few existing amenities or much of anything else. Other than as a place to catch a bus or train to somewhere else there isn’t much in Naypitaw that appeals to most tourists, although some people travel here to marvel at the uniqueness of this centrally planned new city.
