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:

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) -

Surrounded by Japan and China, Seoul and South Korea sometimes doesn't get all the attention is deserves . Korea is home to a unique culture, cuisine and a fascinating history. If you ever have the chance to visit Seoul, you'll have a great time!

I traveled to Seoul Korea and was able to do all kinds of things, but I've narrowed this list down to twenty five of the best things to do in Seoul - of course there are other things as well but this list is just the beginning and intended to get your ideas and travel imagination flowing!

Anyway, on to the top Seoul attractions, here's the list in case you can't see the video:

1. Gyeongbukgung Palace
2. Bukchon Hanok Village
3. Jogyesa Buddhist Temple
4. Suwon's Hwaseong Fortress
5. War Memorial and Museum
6. N Seoul Tower
7. Myeongdong Shopping

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.

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.

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?

North Korea Travel Destination & Attractions | Visit Kumsusan Palace of the Sun Show

North Korea Travel Destination & Attractions | Visit Kumsusan Palace of the Sun Show
Kumsusan Palace of the Sun, formerly the Kumsusan Memorial Palace, and sometimes referred to as the Kim Il-sung Mausoleum, is a building near the northeast corner of the city of Pyongyang that serves as the mausoleum for Kim Il-sung, the founder and eternal president of North Korea, and for his son Kim Jong-il who succeeded him as the country's ruler.[1]
The palace was built in 1976 as the Kumsusan Assembly Hall and served as Kim Il-sung's official residence. Following the elder Kim's death in 1994, Kim Jong-il had the building renovated and transformed into his father's mausoleum.[2] It is believed that the conversion cost at least $100 million.[3] Some sources put the figure as high as $900 million.[4][5] Inside the palace, Kim Il-sung's embalmed body lies inside a clear glass sarcophagus. His head rests on a Korean-style pillow and he is covered by the flag of the Workers' Party of Korea. Kim Jong-il is now on display in a room close to and very similar to his father's.[6]
Kumsusan is the largest mausoleum dedicated to a Communist leader[7] and the only one to house the remains of multiple people. It is fronted by a large square, approximately 500 metres (1,600 ft) in length.[8] It is bordered on its northern and eastern sides by a moat.Foreign visitors can access the palace only on Thursdays and Sundays. They must be on an official government tour. Photography, videotaping, smoking and talking are not permitted anywhere inside the palace.
The building is accessed via an underpass adjacent to a tram stop across the road. Upon entering the building, visitors (both foreigners and North Korean tourists) are asked to check all personal belongings except their wallets in a cloak room, and are given a numbered ticket to claim their belongings when leaving.[9] Visitors proceed along a series of long travelators.[10]
They emerge in a long hall with two white stone statues of the Kims bathed in soft red light. Marble arched columns line the hall. Visitors are told to stop at a yellow line on the floor and, after a few moments of contemplation, beckoned into another room. Here, they are given small speaker devices that play a narration of the Korean people's grief when Kim Il-sung died. The room features bronze-like busts of people grieving. Finally, visitors go in a lift to the top floor in the white and grey marble walled building. They are filed through a dust blowing machine and enter the room with the preserved remains of Kim Il-sung and Kim Jong-il lying in state. A red rope barrier runs around the transparent crystal sarcophagi. Visitors are sent in groups of four and are told to bow at the Kim's feet, to his left and then right side, More Info :

16 Places You're Not Allowed To Visit

These 16 places are highly guarded and mysterious places are not easy to get to and visit like the dangerous radioactive Chernobyl.

Subscribe to Talltanic

7. The Colonel's LIttle Secret
Similar to the Coca Cola vault, Colonel Sanders really doesn’t want anyone else replicating his mighty fine, fingerlicking good recipe. He has a total of 11 herbs and spices he mixes in there and the recipe is stored in the an upgraded modern security facility at the headquarters in Kentucky. What are they putting in our chicken? According to rumor, even the President of KFC doesn’t know the recipe, so don’t try bribing the drive through to give it up.

6. Room 39
It’s not like anyone would willingly want to go to North Korea but if someone were to try to get into Room 39 it would be extremely difficult. At an undisclosed location, most likely in or near the capital of Pyongyang, lies a rumored headquarter that's in charge of North Korea's underground activities. They are mostly in charge of gathering foreign currency in whatever way possible. Whether it’s drugs, counterfeits arms deals the lists go on. If North Korea were to get a hold of a nuke, it would most likely have to come from foreign counterfeit.

5. Chernobyl
No one is legally able to visit the Chernobyl exclusion zone without permission from the Ukrainian government, which basically means it’s off limits. Some people are willing to take the risk to visit the abandoned city but it’s extremely risky especially for foreigners who don’t speak Russian well. The only way you’re getting in here is with a heavy bribe to the police if you’re stopped. In just a short period of time you might be able to get away with visiting the outskirts without too much bodily damage. The sludge that’s left here after the literal meltdown of the radioactive materials is known as the elephant's foot as you see in this photo is still extremely lethal. Just after 300 seconds of exposure gives you only 2 days to live. It’s actually still melting and could one day seep into the ground water. Good luck!

4. Ozyorsk, Russia
Sometimes entire cities can be completely off limits in Russia. Located in the Chelyabinsk Oblast Region, Ozyorsk is considered a closed town due to how close it is to the Mayak plant. However people do live here, you're just not invited to this one. The Mayak plant is a facility that processes nuclear waste and decommissions decaying weapons of mass destruction. It used to be a location where the Soviet Union would find its source of plutonium. The area is now polluted with industrial and radioactive waste.

3. Svalbard Global Seed Vault
If the world were to come to a tragic end or certain species of plants have become extinct, the svalbard seed vault has got their back! Located only 800 miles south of the North Pole in Norway lies a vault that has a set goal on preserving plant diversity and holding on to large amounts of seeds in the case of an emergency. More than 400,000 crop seeds are stored here and includes seeds for 32 varieties of potatoes. The Norwegian government spent 9 million dollars on this facility that one besides scientists can go to and maybe some day it’ll be useful.

2. The Demilitarized Zone
Also known as the 38th Parallel, the demilitarized zone was created at the end of the Korean War to keep the two countries at peace. It’s considered to be neutral territory that neither country is allowed to cross and at least a 10 mile wide buffer zone between the two. It’s most heavily militarized border in the worlds Near this zone, you’ll notice quite a few landmines, armed soldiers, watch towers. You can almost feel the tension about to burst. North Korea even built the 4 largest flagpole in the world in order to giver the southerners a view of communism. You’re really not allowed to visit this zone, and some how if you find away, you may bring on another world war.

1.Area 51 Nevada
No other place seems to be so secret yet well known at the same time. Also located within the isolated National Nevada Security Site, the government only recently admitted its existence. They claim to use the smooth, dry lake bed known as groom lake as a runway for experimenting with new aircraft. But do to the extreme restriction many wonder exactly what’s going on out there. Motion detectors and thermal body heat detectors are spread across desert and will detect anyone who thinks about coming close. Not to mention the constant surveillance of drones that relentlessly monitor the area for trespassers. Conspiracy theorist claim the government is holding extraterrestrial life forms or even their flying saucers at this location, but it’s restricted, i guess we’ll never find out exactly, will we?
