Pyongyang, the capital of North Korea (DPRK), sprawls across its north west of Korean peninsula. From the capital, most of the classic itineraries introduce the visit to the vicinity coastal towns of Nampo, Haeju, followed by a visit to the DZM Kaesong, an intriguing spot which shares the border line with the South. Over to the East, Wonsan is the main draw for its beaches and the access it offers to the string of smaller islands that pepper the East Sea (Sea of Japan). From here, if we move south, the wild crags of Mount Kumgang (Kumgangsan) offer dramatic scenery, whilst moving a bit up north, industrial city of Hamhung acts as second largest city in the North Korea (DPRK). If you have more time and want to experience something off beaten track, there is an option to charter a flight to visit sacred Mount Paektu (Paektusan) or visit special economic zone of Rason - bordering Russia and the Korean Autonomous Prefecture of Yanbian in China.
