Nay Pyi Taw is the administrative capital of the Union of Myanmar and is home to most government offices as well as a growing array of businesses and cultural attractions. Its hotels offer the best value-for-money in the country, and the wide streets are a pleasant change from the traffic- choked streets of Yangon and Mandalay. The city is also surrounded by attractions, including colonial- era hill stations, mountain pagodas, heritage-listed cities and elephant camps. Its central location provides easy access to tourist destinations like Bagan, Mandalay and Heho which are all within 30 minutes by flight. Nay Pyi Taw is fast becoming a weekend getaway for both locals and expatriates living in Yangon.
