  • Nayptitaw - one of the weirdest cities I've ever been to. The huge, empty city was rumored to have been created in 2005 by Burma's ruling generals on the advice of fortune tellers. It's thought that the wide boulevards were designed to double as airstrips in case of emergency and a nearby hill is honeycombed with underground bunkers and passageways. Most of the people you see on the streets are street cleaners and gardeners - in this case working in front of Parliament. #naypyidaw #naypyitaw #myanmar #burma #latergram
