Welcome to Pyongyang

While these bombastic statement pieces are all impressive, the real delights of Pyongyang are to be had in the quieter moments when you can glimpse everyday life. A gentle stroll on the city's relaxed Moran Hill, for example, is a great chance to see locals having picnics, playing music and idling away sunny afternoons. As you are bussed between sights, you’ll often be able to detect a semblance of normality surviving in the capital, though you'll definitely have to look pretty hard for it.
