Hello travel folks,
I'm just coming back from a world tour, it included North Korea. I went for the company Explore North Korea. At first I thought the company looked a bit too cheap to be trustworthy, but then, I decided to take the step. Well, it wasn't a bad decision, at all. I chose to take off from Shenyang because I wanted to have the DPRK visa stamped in my passport, instead of a Tourist card (Explore NK is the only tour company that can do this I reckon). I got my visa in 4 hours, they…
I am going to North Korea in March 2017 & am unable to decide which tour company to proceed with. I have compared Lupine Travel & Young Pioneer Tours. Can anyone give me some opinions on their experiences with either company (or any other!!)
Hello, I ´d like to visit in a daytrip from Seoul the NK Border at the DMZ.
Does anybody know if its possible to go there by my own and book a tour for the tunnel when Im at the border?
Are there tour agencies where I can book it? Or does it has to be arrange in advance? Im German passport holder.
I´m wondering when Im in the tunnel, if I´m at any point on the NK side or is it all SK side?
(I was reading once that at one point GPS signal would be on the NK side...)
Anybody here has experiences or…
I am planning on taking a group tour with YPT in May. I would like to get a visa stamp in London. Can anyone tell me if this is a relatively easy process? YPT have warned me visas can be denied at the Embassy, which would mean I would lose my money on the tour.
Also would I be missing much by not taking the train, at least one way (as opposed to flying both ways).
Thanks in advance for any advice.

In a few months, I possibility might be going to the DPRK. I heard from others that they are accepting to japanese people so I am happy about that. My parents allowed me to go on my own because I turned of age.
I do want to know, what should I bring? What should I expect and is ther a way to study abroad?
Just back from my truly awesome trip. Incredible experience!
I won't repeat a load of stuff that's already been covered, but here are my headlines about things I didn't know or didn't expect. or just worth knowing...
1 - I collected my visa from the Embassy in London: weird experience as I was interviewed on the street due to "security reasons". Arranged through Young Pioneer Tours who were amazing throughout. You have to go to an Embassy to get a visa in your passport: if you just do…
