How to travel to North Korea

Do any of posts and pictures make you want to plan your own trip to North Korea?  Its not for everybody, but its a strange and unique travel and cultural experience unlike any other in the world.  Get there now before it changes – it could open further or could suddenly close, who knows.  Setting up a trip to the DPRK is actually quite easy, you will need a double entry Chinese visa and to get yourself to Beijing to make the orientation brief, from there my friends at Koryo Tours will do all the rest – make sure to ask for Hannah!

There is some fine print involved:  Professional journalists and photographers will need to sign an agreement to not publish unauthorized news stories about the DPRK – posting to Flickr, Facebook, and to blogs by normal people is fine as long as they don’t go overboard with criticism.  Americans can easily arrange a tour to North Kora at all times of the year but we are restricted to a stay of just 7days/6nights, and while other nationalities normally fly in and depart by train, we are required to fly both in and out.
