North Korea

North Korea Holidays

The Korean war ended in 1953 and since then the Korean Peninsula has been divided by a demilitarized zone (DMZ) separating the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) in the north and the Republic of Korea (ROK) in the south. Probably the most mysterious country in the world, sometimes known as ‘the Hermit Kingdom’, North Korea has historically been controversial and has shut out the rest of the world. By only periodically opening and closing its doors to foreigners, it consequently remains one of the world’s most inaccessible countries with few international friends. The country is therefore by no means an ordinary tourist destination.

Many travelers have asked us: is it safe to travel to North Korea? Our answer is: Definitely, why not? There is now a major change in the country’s circumstances under the new leadership of the youthful Kim Jong-un, and visiting North Korea now will be a really safe and enjoyable experience. With our specialists having organized countless North Korea Tours, you will be offered valuable advice to tailor a perfect trip to this isolated but interesting country.

Ideas for Experiencing North Korea

A country known for rockets and nuclear bomb test, North Korea (DPRK) is the world's most isolated nation promising an eclectic mix of things to do. The capital, Pyongyang, is where the most important monuments, crumbling, historical centres such as the Arch of Triumph and Kim Il Sung Aquare are located. A city tour will also offer you the chance to ride the famous underground train, then see people on the train so happy to be returning home. Away from the city, the small countryside town of Mount Myohang acts as one of the most beautiful areas in the Korean peninsula. Of course, no North Korea (DPRK) trips would be complete without visiting DMZ or Military Demarcation line, an area that Bill Clinton described as 'one of the most dangerous places in the world'.
