Join us for one of the most spectacular holidays to celebrate in North Korea, May Day!
Aside from all the usual sites, May Day gives us one of the best opportunities to relax, meet, and hang out with locals during the celebrations on Moran Hill. Koreans take this holiday very seriously and you will more than be expected to sing, dance, and play around with them during the festivities. Could there be a better time to go?
Whilst celebrating we’ll be visiting all the must-see sights around Pyongyang city such as the mausoleum, the recently renovated Korean War museum, Kim Il Sung Square, the famous Pyongyang Metro, and much more! If you’ve got the energy to explore more with us, our Group B and C tour continues to the western coastal city of Nampo where we’ll see more of the industrial side of North Korea and partake in a relaxing hot spring bath located privately in our own room. We’ll also stop by the recently opened Pyongsong city to visit the local schools and museums, stopping along the way to enjoy scenic countryside and some of the smaller towns.
Our Group C will then head up to Mount Myohyang, a beautiful mountain located further north of Pyongyang where the very famous International Friendship Exhibition hall is buried into the mountain displaying the large collection of gifts given to the DPRK leaders from all around the world.
To further spice up the Group C tour we’ll be making our way to Sinuiju, the bordertown of the DPRK located next to Dandong in China across the Yalu river. We’ll be taking the domestic train from Pyongyang up to Sinuiju and are to be one of the first groups to stay at the Dongrim Hotel located in a small city just outside of Sinuiju. We’ll then be visiting the Pomhayanggi Cosmetics Factory, Sinamri Co-operative farm, a local Folklore Park where you can engage in traditional Korean activities with the locals, and will watch a performance by the Bonbu Kindergarten.
This May Day also marks the 8th year “birthday” of YPT taking revellers into the DPRK! So join us as we too celebrate a very special time for both us and the locals in North Korea!
Unfortunately for those travelling on US passports, you will be unable to join us for Group C as the local DPRK law restricts US passport holders to use the rail in the DPRK.
