The Truman Show

A travel blog entry by claude_and_iain


This replaces a previously 'holding' entry I had here. The earlier fixed rule about not writing about our visit got progressively more lax as the week progressed. Hence I can share a heck of a lot.

This 5 day visit to North Korea has been far and away the most interesting place I have ever visited. No contest at all. Many places in the …

Arirang Mass Games

A travel blog entry by kennethq


There are simply no words to describe this show. Every show I have seen come a distant second to this. There's a reason why it is in The Guinness Book of World Records. 100,000 performers in a 150,000 capacity stadium doesn't even come close to describing it. Over 400 photos taken may give you some idea. I'm not going to make an attempt to put it …

Welcome to Pyongyang!

A travel blog entry by kennethq


Well we landed safely...Air Koryo is certainly not the worst airline I've been on but the microwave burger they served us was nice and rubbery... No issues going through customs thankfully. We took off on a brand new tour bus to our hotel.

First day in the DPRK

A travel blog entry by matthewbeard


So up at 3am and a taxi back to Beijing Capital airport. Check in at the Koryo Air counter was interesting. The only passengers seemed to be our tour group and a large team of North Korean athletes, all dressed in smart black blazers and carrying numerous trophies. I noticed that they were all wearing pins with two portraits of Kim Il-sung and Kim …

I wasn't expecting that!: Kim Il Sung's Mausoleum. Wow. Truly amazing. Kim Il Sung is the eternal president of the DPRK, (despite the fact that he died in July 1994) and when he died his residence was turned into his mausoleum. Before you enter the mausoleum you are required to hand in all of your belongings and you are then patted down ( …

    Stayed here for the duration of our trip to North Korea. It is a 47 floor hotel for international guests on an island in the middle of the city. Seems that the guests are made up of foreign government officials, tourists and arms dealers. Mystery surrounds the place, including rumours of wifi internet being available "somewhere outside" and lots of mystery floors on which the lift doors open to complete darkness. Every meal is taken in the revolving restaurant on the top floe
