"Into the unknown" North Korea by crewsada
North Korea Travel Guide: 550 reviews and 1,757 photos
No wonder the roads are quiet. Most people need a pernit to get from one place to the other, most are lucky to have bikes.
You could honestly lie down for a afternoon siesta and not worry about being run over - though I wouldnt advise it. There are many kinds of things in short supply.
It truly is a fascinating place to get to know.
You may need to pay a lot of cash just to get inside, but if you can afford a few days or even a week, it should be enough to absorb some of your desire and need to know about a secret pocket of the world.
The main square of the capital will surely be part of your tour list as well as many visit to several of the Pyongyangs' mammoth monuments and statues. This is adjacent to where the military parades take place during the mass games event.
Another bound to be included part of the tour will be a visit to the DMZ (demiliterized zone on the border between North and south Korea)
- Pros:the people we met were very welcoming
- Cons:you go where you are taken
- In a nutshell:An insight to a completely different world of culture
So, like with most of the things you will do in North Korea, there will be little alternative but to accept the places... more travel advice
