With a name that means ‘Abode of Kings’, Nay Pyi Taw is Myanmar’s administrative seat, having been built from scratch to replace Yangon as the country’s capital city. Most of the Burmese government’s offices are thus located in this new city, but that certainly does not rid it of its fun and cultural elements. Parks, dining outlets and shopping destinations are some of the attractions that colour it, beckoning tourists and locals alike to have a good time in its area of over 2,000 square miles.
