List of Things to Do in Nay Pyi Taw – Explore the best of a sprawling city

If your wish is to make your travel diaries much more wonderful and exciting, your decision to travel to Nay Pyi Taw will not dissapoint. But it's sure to be more awesome if you choose the best of all attractions to please your senses. Check this out!

1

Visit the Uppatasanti Pagoda

Have you heard of the ever-famous Shwedagon Pagoda in Yangon? Although not this Uppatasanti Pagoda is not as popular as the Shwedagon, it has many similarities with the Shwedagon Pagoda. Everything from the structure to the colours used, Shwedagon and Uppatasanti are almost the same, but there is a small difference with their heights. Uppatasanti is 30 cm shorter than Shwedagon, but you won't even notice that!

Visit the Nay Pyi Taw Bagan

This is the best place to head to if you want to know historical facts about Myanmar. Over 2000 years back, Myanmar has had the Pyu Era, and this building has all the information you need to know ever since then.

Visit the National Herbal Park

Spanning across an area of 200 acres, the National Herbal Park in Nay Pyi Taw is a must-visit during your tour. It was opened to the public in 2008, but during this short period, it has won the hearts of many travellers from Myanmar, and from all around the globe as well. You find over 20000 diverse gerbil plants, and some of them are to be only found in Myanmar. As you must be knowing, herbal treatments are the best for some of the diseases, and if you feel like taking a plant or two home, you just need to purchase them from the stall established by the management staff.

Visit the Sin Phyu Mount

Sin Phyu Mountain is not located within the boundaries of this capital city, but it's just a 30-45-minute drive away. What you'll love the most about this mountain is that it's not very high in its elevation, and that says to you that the hike will not at all be hard or exhausting. If you are not into hiking, you can always take the staircase to reach the summit. This is so far the best way to have the perfect panoramic views of the city while you are in Nay Pyi Taw.

5

Enjoy the authentic culture

Yes, you may visit the attractions and enjoy all of those, but you need to admire the rich authenticity in this city too. One of the best things you can do is choosing a great venue to spend your holiday. Nay Pyi Taw hotels the likes of PARKROYAL Nay Pyi Taw are so awesome with their authentic hospitality services. While tasting the traditional cuisine, you may also enjoy their traditional spa treatments.

Visit the Hluttaw

Since this is the capital city, you also find the parliament complex of Myanmar here. This complex has 31 buildings in it, and you will have to come along the amazing 20-lane highway to visit this nationally important building structure.
