Nay Pyi Taw has been bustling with enthusiastic revellers as the annual Thingyan Water Festival comes to a close, sources say.
The Mayor’s Pavilion featured entertainment programmes with local artistes and Myanmar traditional dances, as well as K-poppers and Russian artistes.
Revellers toured round the city by car, and pedestrians enjoyed various Thingyan snacks at donation spots across Tatkon, Lewe, Zabuthiri, Ottarathiri, Dekkhinathiri, Zeyathiri, and Pobbathiri townships.
The second Nay Pyi Taw Walking Thingyan witnessed more visitors on the last day than on previous days.
Likewise, religious centres, including the Maravijaya Buddha Image and Uppatasanti Pagoda, were crowded with merit-makers.
Festival-goers also visited famous landmarks such as the Nay Pyi Taw Water Fountain Park, Zoological Gardens, and Safari Park.
All these festivities were possible thanks to security provided by the police and traffic police.
