The Dragon Trip's tour of North Korea enables intrepid to discover the world's most secretive nation.
North Korea is the final frontier in world travel for many people. The 'DPRK', as it's officially called, is a destination that even die-hard solo travellers will join an organized tour to catch a glimpse of. It's so rooted in mystery, untouched by globalization and mired in world headlines that this Cold-War relic is one of the world's ultimate adventures.
DAY 1 - Meet your tour leader in Beijing, to collect your visa and head to the airport to fly to DPRK’s Capital, Pyongyang. Take in your first glimpses of the hermit Kingdom, and enjoy a tour of the Arch of Triumph and Kim Il Sung Square.
DAY 2 – Head to Kaesong and check out the fascinating Koryo museum with over a thousand relics from the Koryo period. Enjoy a taste of Korean local cuisine at the Tongil Restaurant before wandering in Janam Park and over Sonjuk Bridge. We will also visit the tomb of King Kongmin before returning for an evening stay in Pyongyang.
DAY 3 - See the Mansudae Grand Monument. These are two giant statues of Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il that stand proudly over the city. You will then hop on the Pyongyang metro alongside local commuters to the Juche Tower and imagine life as a North Korean citizen. Ascend the Juche Tower and take in the aerial views over the city- a great chance to grab some incredible photos.
