"Murals to the 'Great Leader'" Top 5 Page for this destination North Korea Things to Do Tip by Willettsworld

North Korea Things to Do: 89 reviews and 282 photos

You'll find these all over the country and they're straight out of the first page of the book on how to be a communist dictator leader. Simply plaster yourself on buildings, walls etc so that the general population know, everyday, that you are their leader and that is that and that nothing else matters in their lives. Give them hope that things are good and going well when, in essence, things are damn right terrible. I have to admit that these murals are actually quite nice and colourful in the drab environment and were what I wanted to see as part of my trip.
