Is Myanmar’s new capital a ghost town?

I didn’t quite know what to expect in Naypyidaw. The capital was moved here to the middle of the jungle in 2005.

It is true that there is a 20-lane highway with very, very little traffic. However, other highways and roads have more traffic. Maybe not by Myanmarese standards, but a ghost town this is not.

There’s even a bustling market.
