I'm starting to look into a trip to the DPRK for next year and want to see a Military Parade. They don't appear to happen with certainty at any particular time of the year (correct me if I'm wrong), but I am sure that there would be times of the year that they happen regularly or more frequently.
I was considering travelling during the National Day holiday period and I would think that a Military Parade would possibly take place then.
I have scoured the usual tour company…
Despite reading about big camera lenses not being allowed in the DPRK, my travel company says there are no restrictions (I plan to bring a 70-200mm). Has anyone experienced restrictions or confiscations?
Has anyone had a video done by the tour company during the trip and was it any good (quality and content wise)? Did it contain DPRK music and/or comments? I think it would be fun to have a video made thru "official" eyes...
Did anyone visit the Viennese café or the pizza parlour in…
We are starting to pack our bags for DPRK and I am wondering if there is any clothing that is better left at home. We are also going to China and South Korea so I (and my teenage daughter) would not like to have some of our clothing confiscated. Do they confiscate clothing ie Band t-shirts, tshirts with words and phrases etc
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.
