 Nay Pyi Taw - Voyage MyanmarNAY PYI TAW (Capital)

In 2005 the military rulers proclaimed a new capital approximately 400kms north of the old capital of Yangon, and called it Nay Pyi Taw, which loosely translates to “Royal City of the Sun”. This sprawling, quickly constructed city has become home to government departments and the military hierarchy that rules the country. Some areas of this capital city remain out of bounds to anyone but those who live there, although there are areas of government housing, shopping zones, and hotels springing up in dedicated areas. It is the only area in Myanmar that does not have power black-outs, and has power 24 hours of the day. Some sites to visit in the new capital include the zoo and safari park, the massive Uppatasanti Pagoda, just a fraction smaller than Shwedagon Pagoda in Yangon and housing two white elephants, the Gem Museum, and the National Museum.

The beaches at Ngapali are an incredibly beautiful stretch of beaches with their pristine white sandy shoreline, coconut palms, beachside bungalows and seafood delights set on the azure blue waters of the Bay of Bengal. Fast becoming the hot-shot place for older Europeans, it is also becoming a “getaway” place for the richer locals. If sun baking, snorkeling, relaxing, and taking it easy watching incredible sunsets are what you are searching for then this is the place for you! There are a number of small fishing villages to explore, and a small market to hold your interest but it really a purely relaxation destination.
