Explore the Uppatasanti Pagoda

You must have surely heard of the famous Shwedagon Pagoda in Yangon. This Uppatasanti Pagoda constructed in 2009 looks so alike the Shwedagon Pagoda, but Uppatasanti is 30 cm shorter than it. This temple houses a sacred tooth relic of Lord Buddha that was gifted from China.

Explore the Nay Pyi Taw Bagan

If you are someone in love with exploring everything about the past and history, here's a great suggestion for you. Head to the Nay Pyi Taw Bagan which is about a 12-min drive away from the Uppatasanti Pagoda. This attraction reveals a lot of information about the Pyu Era of Myanmar that prevailed over 2000 years back.

Explore the National Herbal Park

This is another main treasure of this capital city. This herbal park which spans across an area of 200 acres was developed in 2008 and has more than 20000 different species of plants and herbs out of which some are native to Myanmar. You may walk through the woods to find rare types of medicinal plants and if you take a guided tour, you may also understand how these plants do their job in the traditional healing methods addressing diverse illnesses. This herbal park also has stalls to sell different types of herbal plants to the guests.

Explore the Hluttaw

Locals pronounce this building as 'lu taw' and it means the parliament complex of Myanmar. You will have to come along the 20-lane highway to come across this building complex. The parliament complex has 31 buildings in it. Do you know why it's 31? That's because Buddhists (who represent the majority of the Myanmar population) believe that there are 31 realms that humans can be reborn into according to the merits and sins they collect during their existing life. Thus, 31 is always special in Myanmar.

5

Explore the Sin Phyu Mount

Located around a 30-45 min drive away from Nay Pyi Taw, Sin Phyu is a mountain that's not so high in its elevation. You can opt for either hiking or taking the stairway according to your preference. Taking the stairway will be the easier and the faster option and that will only take 20-25 minutes. Once you go to the top, you'll be rewarded with the nicest views of all.
