North Korea – A Tourists Paradise


Pyongyang, DPRK (North Korea). February 2010

Pyongyang, North Korea

I don’t know why, but North Korea has a certain fascination for me.  Maybe it is the morbid curiosity, or the allure of the forbidden or maybe the sheer element of wanting to see the unknown.  I have no idea.  The link here* is from Time magazine and consists of photos taken by Chinese tourists on a cruise along the North Korean coast.  Pictures are so rare of this country that it is almost an event when they are released.

About John

I enjoy travel, sports, music and anything else that jumps up at me for the moment, which is why I blog. There will be lots of music and travel posts and a smattering of sports and humour. I enjoy promoting Canada and am unabashedly a proud Canuck.

    It really does seem like a fascinating country! I always thought that you would see such limited amount of things, due to their strict policies on tourism and crazy propoganda but after reading this blog http://americaninnorthkorea.com/2012/01/07/laughter-blogging-and-north-korea/ i feel maybe there is a chance to actually meet real people and experience a bit of North Korean life…maybe! 🙂
