This Abandoned Secret Town Is 6 Times The Size Of New York But Totally Hidden

Naypyidaw, the new capital city of Burma is designed as an artificial tribute city to the glorious military Junta which ruled the country of Myanmar since the World War II. Then Shwe, the despotic ruler of Burma spent more than 26 billion Euros, borrowing major amounts of it from the Central Bank, a debt directly imposed on the already poor citizens of one of the poorest nations of South East. 

The new capital has been shifted to a barren land from the cultural, historical and economic heartland of the country, Yangon, 320 miles north. The city is six times the size of NYC is almost vacant, and one of the biggest abandoned cities of the world.
