Pyongyang Cleaning Stations
“What do you think of Pyongyang?” asked one of our guides. As we carefully considered our responses our guide answered for us, “foreigners think Pyongyang is a clean city!” Well I can’t argue with that. While Pyongyang is a little rough and scruffy around the edges, the proud residents do work hard to keep the streets, parks, and public spaces swept and clean. If you do visit Pyongyang and happen to see some garbage, don’t take pictures, concerned citizens will complain to authorities, and the guides require you to delete the photos off your memory card.
