What to do in North Korea
North Korea is a country of rich history, stunning landscape, and exclusivity. It’s no secret that this nation is the world’s most secretive and isolated country in the world. So if you’re ready to experience something truly new in your travels, then it’s about time you head to North Korea.
Your gateway to North Korea is the capital city, so fly to Pyongyang. It’s also where most of the country’s tourist attractions are. Bring your camera to the city’s monuments at the Arch of Triumph, Chollima Statue, Monsudae Grand Monument, and the Workers Party Monument.
Spend an afternoon or evening out to watch the Pyongyang Circus. If you want more kid-friendly fun, enjoy a day at Kaeson Funfair and Munsu Water Park. Then see an incredible view of Pyongyang from the viewing platform of Juche Tower.
From Pyongyang, make your way to Kaesong. Take pictures of the lovely Nam Gate. Wander through Kaesong Old Town and add more classing Korean-style buildings to your travel photos. Then for a touch of nature, enjoy the scenery of Pakyon Falls and the landscape around the Tomb of King Kongmin.
Next, make your way to Kumgangsan. Visit the Python Temple. Check out the impressive Kuryong Falls. Find the platform at the Kuryong Pavilion to get amazing views of the surrounding scenery.
You can’t miss the gorgeous Kuryong Lake. Cross the thrilling Ryondam Bridge and climb to Kuryong Rock for a spectacular view of the deep valley and several lakes. Don’t forget to see Samil Lagoon and Manmulsang.
If you’re looking for time by the sea, travel to Wonsan and go Haean Fun Fair. And for a cooler experience in North Korea, have fun at Masik Ski Resort.
