    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

    We had a few hour drive down to Orang airport for our flight back to Pyongyang, again no photos were permitted.

    We had a lovely picnic lunch by the sea at the revolution memorial on the way.

    Back in Pyongyang, we had our last supper at the Koryo Hotel. It was our last chance for souvenirs for a few to get drunk in Korea.

    On the way down we briefly stopped at a hotel by the beach, it was quite nice there with locals bathing so the itinerary was changed so we could spend some more time there by the beach, but this morning it was cool, overcast and showers and no locals on the beach. Some of our group still had a swim, I relaxed on my tablet and tried to dry my …

    The low light of the day was the so called US atrocities museum, I'll get to this.

    We started of viewing an 8km dam at the mouth of the Taedong river to prevent flooding. It was a significant scheme to built.

    We then drove around Nampo and to a scenic spot in the mountains where we had a picnic lunch after a walk up to a Buddhist …

    Oh, what a fantastic day.

    Our group is privileged to be the first foreigners to ride the full subway with the locals, stopping at stations to get photos. This has come about by past tourists being sceptical that the entire subway existed after only being allowed to ride between 2 stations. Our group confirmed that the subway definitely …

    What a fabulous day we had on Korea's National Day.

    It all started at the fabulously named "Victorious Fatherland Liberation War Museum" that I was so looking forward to see. Outside were very well preserved relics captured in the Korean war. It was interesting to see the Jeeps, helicopters, tanks etc. of the era.
