It stands on high land and views are fantastic. You can enjoy great 360 panoramic views from pagoda's platform. Inside, there are very nice stone carving images concern with Buddha's stories. Please take care when you are walking inside around pagoda. There will be slipping...More

My favourite pagoda in Myanmar. While Yangon's shwedagon is perhaps more architecturally impressive it is also very busy. Uppatasanti however is virtually empty. This enhances the bizarre experience of naypyidaw and allows you to appreciate the building more. However, my favourite part was the views...More

..... not quite as high from what the guidebooks say. Well worth a trip and some interesting background and history to learn about plus some great views.

I went with a group at night and had a good time. It is similar in design to the Swe Dagon Pagoda in Yangon but modern and a bit less grand. Lots of signs in English to tell you what is what. We were there...More

Pretty much the best (and only) thing to see. Around 20 mins from hotel area. Free entry but no shoes or socks allowed. Stunning building. Not so great if you've been to Yangon already. Very very quiet. Blazing hot in the day. Better go before...More

If you happen to be in Naypyidaw you are most likely in the capital for some kind of business, a convention or other work-related matters. To get at least a bit of local flavour (as much as that exists in the capital at all) try...More

The pagoda is huge and looks awesome. The place was pretty empty as we were there, just like everything in Naypyidaw. The inside is stunning and you can take some great pictures on the platform outside. Also a nice view from the pagoda as it...More

Take a taxi. You can probably negotiate an all day taxi rate. I've read $20-25 would be enough for the whole day and then you could go anywhere. I've not seen any bus services in NYT.
