Naypyidaw Travel Guide
Naypyidaw, also spelled Nay Pyi Taw, officially replaced Yangon as the capital of Myanmar in 2005. It is officially known by the acronym NPT.
Naypyidaw is unique and a little bizarre. It’s a large and fully laid out city but with insufficient inhabitants and buildings for its size, so you can experience the unprecedented Asian scenario of never getting stuck in traffic. Whether this weird situation will remain when Burma‘s economy begins to boom is another matter since the lack of gridlock is certainly not down to superb road planning and cutting edge traffic control. What helps are the eight-lane boulevards and Parisian-sized roundabouts.
Naypyidaw was a rather secretive construction project by the ruling military junta in the early 2000s and, in November 2005, was suddenly officially announced as Myanmar’s new capital. Government workers were given two months notice that they would have to move from Yangon with the re-location of all government offices and ministries. Most embassies and international organisations, like the UN, have not relocated since an education and health infrastructure is not yet in place.
Naypyidaw Tourist Attractions
- Defence Services Museum, Zeyathiri Township. (Updated Feb 2017) An enormous half open-air, half housed complex celebrating the country’s Military. For a country with so many pressing needs you may find this multi-million dollar vanity project hard to stomach, but it’s free, and anyone interested in military hardware and history will easily be occupied for some hours. It’s a very long walk to see everything. If possible, hire a scooter from your hotel, register at the office 300 yards beyond the entrance gates (bring passport) and then park at each of the three main buildings. Otherwise, brace for a walk of several km, at least most of which are under covered walkways. It’s wheelchair-friendly, for paralympians. Looking from the main road, the area on the left is Navy, straight ahead is Army and History, to the right is Air Force. There are few signposts in English. The Air Force has planes outside including a moth-eaten Spitifire. The Navy has scale models of ships outside. The three main buildings serve to eulogize the top brass and national heroes. The buildings behind/beside contain the detail, including military kit, 3D dioramas of varying quality, and engaging battle paintings. Most commentary is in Burmese but the key material is also in English. Free.
- Gems Museum.
King Statues. Three enormous sculptures depicting the three most important kings in Burmese history: Anawrahta, Bayinnaung and Alaungpaya U Aung Zeya.
- National Herbal Park. Exhibits of plants having medicinal applications from all of the major regions of Burma. There are thousands of plants at the park, representing hundreds of different species. Free.
- Naypyidaw Safari Park.
- Naypyidaw Zoological Gardens. Opened in 2008 with some 420 animals and a climate-controlled penguin house. It is the largest zoo in Burma as most of the animals were relocated from the zoo in Rangoon at the same time as the government officials were making the same journey. When a well known comedian consequently announced that “all our animals are going to Naypiydaw”, he was predictably imprisoned.
- Uppatasanti Pagoda (Peace Pagoda). A prominent landmark in Naypyidaw. The pagoda, which houses a Buddha tooth relic from China, is nearly a replica of Shwedagon Pagoda in Yangon and stands 100 m high. It also has a Maha Hsutaungpyae Buddha image in the Maha Pasadabhumi Gandhakuti Chamber, four jade Buddha images in the pagoda’s hollow cave; a 33 m high flagpole; Bo tree garden with Maha Bo Tree and the images of the 28 Buddhas, Marlini Mangala Lake with the chamber of Shin Uppagutta, and a pagoda museum.
Oppositie the eastern (main) entrance there are two cage houses with gilded roofs where they keep around eight white and three normal Indian elephants in pitiful conditions.
