Isolated and reclusive, labeled as part of George Bush’s ‘axis of evil’, and after almost 60 years still technically at war with South Korea and the USA, the DPRK truly is the last bastion of the cold war. With less than 2000 westerners visiting each year it is not only totally untouched by mass tourism, but truly is one of the last places on earth to really be “off the beaten track”.
North Korea is one of the only places left on earth representing a communist ideology that at its peak governed half the planet and held heavy influence over the rest. North Korea is living political history, in a world of constant upheaval. Nowhere is immune from change and the DPRK is no different.
When you then factor in the breathtaking untouched natural beauty of the countryside, the pristinely clean showcase capital of Pyongyang, the hypnotic influence the Great Leader still wields over his people, and the fact that a trip here lets you not only look, but take part in this unique country, it makes for the most amazing travel experience you are ever likely to have.
