Join us on tour to North Korea and witness the celebrations of Liberation day! This holiday marks the end of the Japanese occupation of Korea in 1945 and it is considered one of the most important national holidays held with a Mass Games performance, mass dances, and possible fireworks!
During your tour with us you’ll have the opportunity to explore all the must see sights of Pyongyang such as the Korean War Museum, take a ride on the deep Pyongyang metro, explore around Kim Il Sung Square, visit the iconic two large bronze statues of the former leaders, head to the top of the Juche Tower for panoramic views of the capital and much more. No trip to the DPRK is complete without visiting Panmunjom Village (the DMZ) where North and South Korea meet head-on!
You’ll then board a local domestic train to the small rural town of Dongrim, a place that sees very few foreign tourists. Here you’ll embark on a gentle hike to the waterfalls (where we also recommend swimming) and stay overnight in a modern and very comfortable hotel. You’ll then head to Sinuiju, the largest border town city of North Korea to China, to explore Sinuiju’s grand central square, visit a local kindergarten, inspect a cosmetics factory, and more.
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.
