List of Things to do in Nay Pyi Taw – The Best Experiences from the Capital City

Located 400km from Yangon, the capital city of Myanmar, Nay Pyi Taw is a city that has everything. Hotels, shopping centres, government houses, and everything is here, and there are also many other attractions to explore and enjoy. Here are some of them.


Enjoy the Water Fountain Garden

With artistic bridges, waterslides, fountains, and ponds, the Water Fountain Garden is a huge park spanning across 165 acres. Visit this park in the evening to witness the fountain show with different colours and music. Don't forget to bring your camera when you come here because you will need it to capture the amazing sunsets and also the views from the tower located on the same premises.


Explore the National Museum

Myanmar is a country with a proud history. So, why not explore some of these historical facts during your holiday, especially with your kids? You just need to head to the National Museum. It was built in 2015, but what it has in store for you goes way back. There are exhibits from the Bagan period, very important fossils, and architectural models of the ancient temples you find in the country.


Travel to the Zoological Garden

Let your kids have some fun with the animals during their holiday spent in Nay Pyi Taw. The zoological garden spans across more than 1000 acres and is home to over many mammals, reptiles, and birds. Kids will especially love to see the penguins and white tigers here.


Explore the Uppatasanti Pagoda

If you have ever been to Yangon in Myanmar, you must have surely gone to its main attraction- Shwedagon Pagoda. It's one of the most sacred and religious sites in the whole world, and the Uppatasanti Pagoda you find in Nay Pyi Taw is a replica of the same. But, according to the statistics, this pagoda is 30 centimetres shorter than the Shwedagon Pagoda. It's an impressive creation in which you can find out statues and images of different sorts.


Visit the National Landmarks Garden

How about enjoying all landmarks of one great city in a single location? Here in Nay Pyi Taw, you get that chance. The National Landmark Garden houses miniature versions of famous building structures and pagodas in the country. This attraction spans across a land area of 50 acres, but you don't need to walk all this distance. If you want to take a guided tour, a golf cart will come and pick you from the entrance and you will travel around the place comfortably while knowing all the details. You just need to sit and relax.


Where to stay in Nay Pyi Taw?

Do not worry about accommodation options in this city because there's quite a lot. Nay Pyi Taw hotels the likes of PARKROYAL Nay Pyi Taw are there to provide world-class hospitality services for both domestic and foreign travellers. Most of these hotels are located within the city limits and provide convenient access to many attractions in the city.
