Naypyidaw, the capitol of Myanmar.
Naypyidaw, Myanmar's capitol since 2005, now greets visitors. It is 320 kilometres from Yangon, the former Myanmar capitol. Naypyidaw is currently Myanmar's third biggest town after Yangon and Mandalay. Naypyidaw is no longer the usual town, but the administration centre of the land, which makes Naypyidaw one of the ten most rapidly expanding towns in the state.
This is probably the reason for the changes in equity. The town of Naypyidaw lies to the west of Pyanymana, Mandalay, almost in the centre of Myanmar. There is a hilly countryside that is better for the army than Yangon. Naypyidaw was a peaceful country with little people. Not so many ressources in the town.
The Myanmar authorities, after declaring Naypyidaw the capitol, speeded up the building of a number of facilities: streets, houses and so on. From a deserted country Naypyidaw quickly turns into a town full of building plans. The extension of Hwy 8, which links Naypyidaw with Yangon, will begin. The Uppatasanti Pagoda, a reproduction of the Shwedagon Pagoda, was built.
The Uppatasanti Pagoda is the new Myanmar symbol that attracts visitors, following the example of the great Shwedagon Pagoda. Uppatasanti Pagoda is 1 ft less than the large Shwedagon Pagoda so that the Shwedagon Pagoda remains the large one of Myanmar as always. This great memorial to the three Magi is designed to glorify the important three Magi of Myanmar:
Naypyidaw is the centre of the town. Naypyidaw sightseeing is very much appreciated by visitors. Nesypyidaw town does not contain much skyscrapers or high buildings. That is why visitors can enjoy a great panorama in the far away from the citybus. Naypyidaw map is subdivided into 4 major zones: administrative area, hotels area, industrial area and war area.
A plane trip is only one way from Thailand to Naypyidaw, as the Myanmar authorities do not allow foreign nationals to enter the Peru. You can take a one and a half hours plane from Bangkok to Myanmar or a plane from Bangkok to Yangon, followed by a drive to Naypyidaw.
