Etiquette

Greetings The standard greeting in North Korea is a handshake, no matter whom you're meeting.

Media Don’t ever fold, tear or throw away a newspaper with one of the Kims on the cover.

Stay Close Don’t wander away from your group; this can result in serious consequences for your guides.

Photography Take it seriously when your guides ask you not to take photographs. Never photograph only one part of a Kim statue, but the entire thing.

Politics Avoid discussing controversial topics with any North Koreans you may meet, even your guides.
