Naypyidaw, officially spelled Nay Pyi Taw is the capital city of Myanmar (formerly known as Burma). It is administered as the Naypyidaw Union Territory, as per the Constitution. On 6 November 2005, the administrative capital of the country was officially moved to a greenfield site centred some 13 km (8 miles) west of Pyinmana, and about 320km north of Yangon (Rangoon), the previous capital.The capital's official name was announced on 27 March 2006, Myanmar's Armed Forces Day. It first became the capital of Myanmar in 2006, after the government decided to move the capital from Yangon with minimal explanation. Much of this planned city was completed in 2012. The 24th and 25th ASEAN Summit as well as the Ninth East Asia Summit were held in Naypyidaw. It was also one of the host cities for the 2013 Southeast Asian Games. The city is notable for its unusual combination of size and low population density.EtymologyNaypyidaw is Burmese for "abode of the king", and is generally translated as "royal capital", "seat of the king", or "abode of kings". Traditionally, it was used as a suffix to the names of royal capitals, such as Mandalay, which was called (Yadanabon Naypyidaw).Plan your tour of Naypyidaw and Myanmar travel itinerary using our Myanmar trip planner.
