Join us as we head into Pyongyang to partake in the Children’s Day celebrations held in the capital’s largest park. We’ll have a chance to spectate but also compete against the students in games, competitions and explore the grounds of Mangyongdae Funfair.
During this tour you’ll have the best opportunity to explore all the must-see sights of Pyongyang including Kim Il Sung square, the Korean War Museum, riding the deepest metro system in the world, visiting a local department store, visiting the top of the Juche tower with a panoramic view of the city and much more.
For those who want to spend an extra day with us to see the DMZ from the north side come join our Group B option! We’ll visit the city of Kaesong which is only a few kilometres from the border. We’ll also check out another city halfway between Kaesong and Pyongyang to try their famous locally brewed Makkoli.
Extend to Group C for the Sinuiju extension as we spend a night in the DPRK border town city opposite Dandong in China. This city is way off the beaten track and gives you an in-depth look into this rural town. We’ll visit a Kindergarten, explore the central square and even walk along the river that divides China and North Korea.
By making use of traveling from Dandong (which is easily reachable from most of China), and the more than comfortable Chongnyon Hotel in Pyongyang, we are able to offer a great price that has you in the country for 2 nights, 3 days, which is inclusive of one full day seeing all the main sites of Pyongyang.
This trip is perfect for those people already in China, or those simply travelling through that do not have the time or budget to do a full trip.
