Mangyongdae is a suburb about 12km south-west of the city centre and is famous for being the place where Kim Il Sung was born on April 15th 1912 in a simply straw thatched house. The jury's out whether or not he was actually born here at all and our guides really emphasised on his humble origins. When I was in China, I visited Mae Zedong's birthplace and that house is very similar. Mangyongdae also has a Kim Il Sung theme park but we didn't visit it.
