We’ve just confirmed with Rason that tourist’s phones will also be allowed into the Rason Special Economic zone, however officially phones with GPS and satellite phones are still banned.
Rason was the original testing ground when cellphones were re introduced and is supposed to be something of a playground for new policy so it’s not particularly surprising that they have also allowed phones. YPT are now especially looking forward to our first Rason tour of the year where traditionally Gareth, myself and one other guide accompany what is usually a very small group. We’re also in the process of adding a quick jaunt to Chongjin and Mt. Chilbo to the itinerary, which should go live soon.
