Enjoy the epic train journey from Dandong – Pyongyang.

Epic train journey from Dandong to Pyongyang

Often a highlight for many on their journey into North Korea is the roughly 6-hour train ride from Dandong – Pyongyang. Taking the train into North Korea is a one of a kind journey. You will have the chance to see not only North Korea’s beautiful countryside but also have an insight into rural life in the country in area’s that are not always open to tourists. It’s also a great place to get to know your tour mates over a couple of North Korean Beers.

An action-packed day in Pyongyang taking in all the highlights the city has to offer.

On our full day in Pyongyang, we’ll dive straight into the heart of the city exploring all the quintessential sites. From all of Pyongyang’s Iconic places and monuments (Juche Tower, Kim Il Sung Square, Party Foundation Monument, Pyongyang metro and so much more..) we’ll make the most of our time leaving no stone unturned. After a full day of touring, we’ll get some well-deserved R and R visiting a local amusement park and a local beer bar to try some of North Koreas finest brew.
