Come with us as we enter DPRK to join in on the celebrations of Korea’s Anniversary of Liberation day! This holiday marks the end of the Japanese occupation of Korea and considered one of the biggest national holidays. During this tour we will be taking part in all the official celebrations, as well as hanging out and dancing and singing with locals in the park, watching the fireworks, and spectate a mass dance
During our tour, we’ll visit the Mausoleum where both President Kim Il Sung and General Kim Jong Il lay in state. We’ll also experience the deep Pyongyang metro as we ride not two but six stations of line 1! We’ll also have an opportunity to visit the Korean War Museum and see the North Korean’s story of the war that took place against the Americans. No trip to the DPRK is complete without visiting Panmumjom (the DMZ) from the Northside where North and South Korea meet head-on! We’ll spend an evening down at Kaesong city at a Traditional Korean Folklore hotel, only 8km from the DMZ!
Stay longer with us on our must-see Group B option 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 busy little city. We’ll visit a Kindergarten, explore the central square of Sinuiju city, go for a hike to Dongrim waterfall (we recommend swimming under the waterfall too), visit a co-op farm, and even walk along the river that divides China and North Korea.
The Mass Games, the world’s largest performance with over 100,000 performers is expected to take place during this tour! Now is your chance to watch this grand spectacular performance. Tickets are on-top of tour cost and is paid in cash during your tour in Pyongyang. We highly recommend securing your spot on tour early as we expect spaces to fill up very quickly.
