Top 10 Tourist Attractions in North Korea 🇰🇵 Pyongyang Travel Guide Documentary


WARNING: Some governments advise against all travel to North Korea due to the uncertain security situation caused by North Korea’s nuclear weapons development program and highly authoritarian and unpredictable regime.
Though there is little evidence of safety issues concerning tourists on organized expeditions, those planning to engage in activities that the North Korean government forbids must be prepared to face severe consequences.
Under no circumstances are you to say anything that could be perceived as an insult to or critical of Kim Il-sung, Kim Jong-Il, Kim Jong-Un, the Juche ideology, the Songun policy, the ruling Worker's Party of Korea, the North Korean government in general, or the citizens of North Korea. Simply avoid these topics if you can.

My Daily Life In NORTH KOREA (MYSTERIOUS 7 DAY TRIP)

UPDATE - one year after visiting North Korea I traveled to South Korea and made a video comparing my experiences in both of these two countries. Watch it here:

Learn how I started traveling full-time at 19:
Catch me and meet me during my travels:

I've always been very interested in North Korea because it seemed to be one of the most unique and mysterious countries in the whole world. This is my day to day life throughout the 7 days that I spent in North Korea. You can never be sure whether things were staged or not in North Korea because you are only shown what they want you to see. You can't choose where or when you will be going to specific places, they simply tell you to hop on a bus and ask you to get off at one point or another.

That is why I didn't want to offer my opinion about whether things were staged or not, whether they were good or not, or honest or not. My goal was to show you what my day to day life looked like when I was there and let you make up your own mind and judge for yourself.

Do not judge North Korea only from what you see in this video. This is what they showed us and there's a reason they show some things and not show the others. Also, knowing how much control they exercise over the population, everything could have been staged only for us.

My favorite books about North Korea:

Dear Leader by Jang Jin Sung -
Escape From Camp 14 by Blaine Harden -
Nothing To Envy by Barbara Demick -
1984 by George Orwell (I couldn't believe how similar some things in North Korea looked to the ones in the book) -

This Video Will Change Your Perception of North Korea

I went on a 3 day guided tour in Pyongyang, North Korea in April 2017, and I put together this short video/documentary from trip.

Please keep in mind that this video is about my own personal experiences in North Korea, so please take what I say with a grain of salt. I am well aware that all tours to North Korea are organized and preplanned, and what I saw was a skewed perspective (a small fraction) of the realities that may exist behind closed doors.

My goal in making this video (and all videos) has always been the same – to focus on spreading happiness & positivity in our world by connecting with people across the globe. While it’s a bit more challenging to do this in North Korea, I tried my best to show you a different side of North Korea and connect with the people – apart from all the negativity the media has brought about to this nation.

Many of you know my deep love, appreciation and connection with Korea, as I lived and taught English in Seoul 18 months. I can speak Korean conversationally, so I used my ability to meet eye to eye with as many North Koreans as I could to have conversations with them. Most people I came across were friendly and kind-hearted, even after telling them I was American.

I welcome your thoughts, feedback and questions about my trip to North Korea. If you enjoy this video, please share it to help spread the message of peace and positivity within North Korea.

10 Days in North Korea. Inside the most isolated country in the world

More films about Asia:
RT takes an exclusive look at North Korea, the world’s most closed-off country. Life here is isolated from the outside world and every aspect of existence is regulated by order of the Great Leader, from the art you’re allowed to see, the books you can read, even to your hairstyle.

The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea is perhaps the least known country in the world today. Based on a political ideology known as ‘Juche’, the socialist government controls every source of information and the national leader, Kim Jong-un, preserves the peace and defends the state’s historical, spiritual and cultural heritage. It’s hard to overestimate the Commander-in-chief’s role in the country: his likeness adorns the streets and squares in every city and village. Through official portraits and statues, he is, literally, everywhere and kindergarten children are taught to sing his praises. Locals adore Kim Jong-un and consider him the Father of the Nation, he encourages everyone to be patriotic and surpass all other nations.
Almost 15% of North Korea’s GDP is reserved for military spending, and long after the Korean War of the 1950s, the country has still not signed a peace treaty with its capitalist southern neighbor. As a result, thousands of families were torn apart by the political divide. The army remains a source of inspiration; it determinates the social structure and stimulates ordinary people to devote their lives to work in the faithful service of the Marshal. The people believe that this military ideology consolidates national spirit and guarantees stability and order.
However, not even tough military methods and an ideological barrier around the country can solve the economic lag or the enormous social and economic gulf between South and North Korea. Self-reliance and self-sufficiency are in stark contrast to the economic reality. Despite developments in labour cooperation, a demilitarized zone, demarcated by a huge wall between the two states, is still amongst the most heavily armed areas in the world.
President of the Korean Friendship Association, Alejandro Cao de Benos explains that due to the generally accepted ideology of the Workers’ Party of Korea, the people will never understand nor accept a western mind-set. From childhood, they are taught to be loyal to their leader and to beware of western values.
For most viewers North Korea remains a mystery but this unique film offers a limited window of opportunity to view Korean lifestyle through the prism of North Korean peoples’ every day cares and joys. RT Doc meets ordinary workers and soldiers to hear first hand, how they lived before being isolated from the whole world.

Here’s what you need to know about traveling to North Korea!
10 - Tours
Contrary to popular belief, people can actually visit North Korea. The only detail is that you can’t do it on your own, like say, backpacking through Europe and staying at hostels all over the place. And if you’re an American, it’s RIGHT NOW HIGHLY recommended to NOT visit North Korea, as diplomatic relations are pretty much nonexistent right now. They’re just snatching up Americans left and right as bargaining chips.
But anyways, to visit North Korea you have to buy a guided tour with one of the authorized agencies. These tours are all government-approved and include 24/7 attention by official “minders” that explain the sights, take you to museums, and ensure that you abide the law. This is useful if you want to avoid doing something that might land you in jail, such as in the unfortunate case of Otto Warmbier, but if you were planning to get to know the REAL North Korea, you’ll have temper your expectations a bit.
Tours will mostly take you to the few tourist places that have been previously authorized by the government, so you most likely won’t be seeing how the general public actually functions and lives. The one good thing about the tours is that they’re pretty affordable. If you stay where you’re told to, and don’t go into the country planning to question everything you see, you should be fine. If you want to go off the beaten path all by yourself, then North Korea isn’t the ideal place to plan your next vacation.
9 - Visa
Citizens of most countries need a visa to visit North Korea, after doing the proper visa work, of course. Only a few countries have visa exemptions for its citizens to visit North Korea. After booking a tour with a travel agency, the tour must be approved by North Korean authorities. Once you have authorization, a visa will be issued. The travel agencies you travel with will take care of all the visa paperwork, but sometimes tourists are required to have a phone interview. These interviews are supposedly pretty friendly and usually only touch on certain aspects of your profession. If you’re a journalist or member of a political party, you’re pretty much gonna be rejected. South Koreans and journalists of any nationality can say goodbye to doing a special piece for a news channel. Missionaries and religious people are also forbidden entrance. Although the North Korean Constitution provides for freedom of religious belief”, let’s not forget the government doesn’t exactly actually allow religious freedom.
When traveling with a tour, the visas will be issued as a group. This way, visas are never held by the individual tourists. This might cause worry for some people, but you can take a picture with your phone of your visa and the tourist card of your tour guide, just in case. But then again, we ARE talking about travel to North Korea….so really, if they really wanted to do something, they’d be able to do it.
Ok, you have your tour booked, and your visa looks promising. Now you actually have to get into the country. Most foreigners can enter North Korea by train, plane or boat. But, US Citizens must enter and exit North Korea by air only. Flights for North Korea only depart from China, so tourists flying in are forced to travel to there first.
8 - Sightseeing
So, what would a typical tourist see inside North Korea? Nothing too exciting apparently. Tours will mostly consist of visiting war memorials and monuments dedicated to the supposedly great North Korean leaders of the revolution. There will also be museums that are mostly related to the war and the further glory of the Workers Party of Korea. Many tour groups also visit the Demilitarized Zone, or DMZ for short, which is a very popular destination.

10 Things Forbidden To Buy in North Korea

Get more Tips here!


We are used to buy anything we think of, but if we're heading to North Korea. We should bare in mind that due to the sanctions by the United Nations plus the restrictions by kim jong Un, there're lots of products we can't buy there.

1) Cable TV
As you can imagine, all the tv programes are monitored by the Government. In fact, they even have a strict scheadule, the tv channel starts at 3 pm. Everything that you can see has already been pre-approved, and it's basically, news, propaganda, documentaries and the activities of their leader. So fun!

2) Smoking
In 2007, smoking was completely forbidden to avoid health issues in their former leader Kim Jong Il. However his son and actual leader has been seen several times smoking freely and with no restrictions at all.

3) Magazines
Of course, we're talking about international magazines, forget about the ones you already know, you won't find them. This happens to avoid being brainwashed from foreign media. So, instead, they have others controlled by their Government, full of national propaganda and the activities of their leader. Very entertaining for sure...

4) Christmas trees
The country says to support any religion custom, however, that's not true. If you show a preference for any other religion you will have lots of really big problems. And... Christmas trees represent another religion so... you can imagine the consequences of having one.

5) Ipad
Apple company has restrictions on this country so they don't sell their products there, also in North Korea is completely forbidden to have one or an Iphone. However, their leader Kim Jong Un is allowed to own them and he doesn't hesitate in taking pictures with them.

6) Houses
It's a very strange thing for us to think of a country where you can't own a home, but... this is North Korea. So, here, the thing is that there are no builders, the army build everything, and... also, instead of buying a house, flat or whatever, you trade it. It's forbidden to own properties.

7) Birth control methods
Many North Korean people don't even know what they are. They used to sell them in the black market, however they don't do that anymore because they were expensive and unknown.

8) Jeans
Yes! you heard it right! Jeans! Well, the North Korean Government controls... everything. So the style of clothing is not less. They have established a specific style that doesn't involve jeans at all. In fact, it's forbidden, so you won't find them on the stores.

9) Coca cola
The real coca cola is impossible to find in this country due to the international sanctions. However, there is a fake Chinese coca cola that try to replace it on the stores. So if you are too anxious for one, maybe you can try this one.

10) Mc Donalds
No, you won't find any Mc Donalds at all in North Korea due to the international sanctions. Sure, you can find some burguer over there, but it will never be the same. If you go there, try to eat them before you travel.

Did you already know all of these restrictions in North Korea?
Comment below!

North Korea's Metro is UNBELIEVABLE

Did you know that Pyongyang, North Korea has the deepest underground public transportation system ON EARTH? It goes 360 feet below the ground!!

Before my trip to Pyongyang last April, I wasn't aware how complex and fascinating the metro system is -- and honestly, it was the best place to be surrounded by North Korean people and watch their culture unfold right in front of my eyes.

Would you ever visit North Korea? Did you know that this metro exists in North Korea?

10 Best Places to Visit in China - Travel Video

China, the gateway to East Asia, is a fascinating country. It is an ancient civilization that gave the world Peking Man, gunpowder and noodles. Visitors making their first trip to China usually stick to the larger cities. More experienced visitors to the Middle Kingdom will strike out in other directions, where traveling may be a bit more frustrating because of the language barrier, but most definitely doable for independent travelers. Here’s a look at the best places to visit in China:

Seoul Vacation Travel Guide | Expedia (4K)



Welcome to Seoul, the capital of South Korea. Start your adventure at the K-Style Hub, a state-of-the-art visitor centre where South Korea’s past, present and future converge.
 
At the head of Gwanghwamun Square sits the statue of Sejong the Great, whose reign oversaw a golden age of literature, science and technology. The great leader sits before the grandest of Seoul’s five royal palaces, Gyeongbokgung, the Palace of Shining Happiness.
 
A short bus or subway ride to the east, are the adjoining palaces of Changdeokgung and Changgyeongung, while just to the south at Deoksugung Palace, see the changing of the guard which takes place three times each day.
Just to the west, is the last of Seoul’s great palaces, Gyeonghuigung, a royal refuge in times of unrest.
 
After exploring Seoul’s temple complexes, see how ordinary Koreans once lived at the Namsangol Hanok Village. Then explore the Korea Furniture Museum where over 2000 exquisite items of furniture are displayed within ten traditional houses. The story of Korean craftsmanship continues at the National Museum of Korea, which houses national treasures such as the Ten Story Pagoda.
 
Close to Seoul’s great South Gate is Namdaemun Market, where locals have been bargaining hard for over 600 years. Looking for some Gangnam style? Head just upriver to Samseong-dong, the Beverly Hills of Seoul.
 
Spend a few hours in the wooded surrounds of the Bongeunsa Buddhist Temple, a peaceful antidote to the fierce pace of Seoul’s shopping. Then hike to the peak of Namsan, and take in the sweeping views from Seoul’s iconic tower. When the sun gets low, join locals on the banks of the Han River to see the Banpo Bridge erupt in waves of water and light.
