Recently I read an article with title 11 Curiosities  Making Vietnam so Special and read about the new administrative city of Myanmar at Nay Pyi Taw. If many years ago the Malaysian government shift the administrative city from Kuala Lumpur to Wilayah Persekutuan Putrajaya with amazing architecture buildings. The same happened for Nay Pyi Yaw. A truly new city with traditional and modern build of buildings. Here I shared some photos of Nay Pyi Yaw which I collected from several sources. I love architecture and design, so don't ask me why I just share building photos in this blog entry.
