What better time to escape the madness of Dragon Boat Festival in China this year than to be away from it all in North Korea.
During your tour you’ll have the unique opportunity to explore all the must-see sights of Pyongyang including Kim Il Sung Square, the Korean War Museum, riding the deepest metro in the world, dropping by 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 extend your stay with us to visit the DMZ from the northern side, join our Group B option! You’ll visit the city of Kaesong which is only a few kilometres from the border of South Korea, explore Panmunjom Village (DMZ) and Sariwon city located halfway between Kaesong and Pyongyang to try their famous locally brewed Makkoli and for scenic views.
Make the absolute most out of your trip with our Group C Sinuiju extension as you spend an evening at the DPRK border town opposite Dandong in China. Sinuiju is way off the beaten track and gives you an in-depth look into the rural life of North Korea by visiting a local kindergarten, touring a cosmetic factory, walking along the Yalu river that creates the natural border of China and North Korea, and more.
By making use of traveling from Dandong which is easily reachable from most of China, this tour 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. If you need assistance with organising accommodation in Dandong or making your way to or from Dandong city, we’ll be happy to help book for you!
Please note: All travellers must have a re-entry visa into China as there isn’t enough time to apply for a Chinese visa in Pyongyang and the 144 hour transfer visa doesn’t permit rail use.
