    Closed frontiers since covid.

    Also Alejandro Cao de Benos can't go there because Spain stole his passport for 6 years.

    Also if you go there I recomend going only with carry on, if i. Any of the airports (european ones for.example) some corrupt staff plants you drugs in your suitcase, chinese or north korean prisons are no joke.

        I was there in 2018. It started with a meeting in beijing where we signed a paper that we know all the risks and we won't hold the travel company accountable if anything happens. Also they tell you the rules, don't leave the group, don't talk to anyone etc. etc.
        You arrive there and everything looks pretty awesome. Everyone is smiling, but you literally can't do shit. You can't go even a small step away from the group, you can't leave the hotel, you can't do anything. Every single day they tell you how great their life is, how great is is communism, how they love the leader and how bad is everything else. It is some kind of brainwashing and you feel like in some kind of a prison. The total humiliation for me was that we were forced to bow to their homosexual statue.
        It cost a lot of money and I was sick to my stomach that I didn't go elsewhere for that money.

                You are part of a tour group but you're not closely watched and can do stuff on your own as well up to a limit. And there is zero political talk, none of the guides will speak any propaganda to you or try to brainwash you or make you feel in a prison. To anyone who has been there, it's more than obvious that guy is just making shit up.

                I went there in 2019:

                - You have to jump through hoops to get it organized and you usually have to travel to China in order to enter the country.

                - You basically pay thousands of dollars just to go on a brainwashing/propaganda tour where your guides are actually secret police and won't hesitate to threaten you if you do so much as point at the wrong thing with your camera (Poverty, slums, etc). They only let you film what's sanctioned by the state and anything else they consider "spying".

                - The food is absolute dog shit, they take you to these state owned "restaurants" which are basically for the elites of the regime and where the kitchen is geared to service 2-3 tables at most when tourists aren't around. Everything is subpar compared to what you get back home. For example they take you to a pizza place and they brag that the chefs trained in Italy at the order of the supreme leader, but the pizza is undercooked, doughy, the sauce is sweet (Typical asian trend of throwing sugar in tomato sauces), and the cheese is low grade shit. The meats were surprisingly too salty and you quickly wonder what kind of "meat" it is to begin with.

                They treat fast food items like burgers like luxury and a proof of their progress but it's basically an outsourced malaysian company serving frozen goyslop at exhorbitant prices.

                The food at the hotel was inedible banchan items, everything fried from the veggies to the meats were basically cardboard.

                - You can't explore on your own, you can't leave your hotel, you step away from your group just a little and the guides start freaking out as if you were a spy or something and start threatening you immediately.

                - Within 2 days everyone in the group was a bit freaked out at this point and wanted to get the frick out of that place as soon as possible. We were counting the days lol.

                Dunno what year you went but when we went shit was pretty tight rules wise and we did feel like we weren't allowed to do anything.

          This is pretty much the same thing a former college roommate of mine said. He was with the State Dept. entourage that went with Trump. He said they couldn't leave their hotel or bus, went on a prearranged tour to few sites and didn't really see much. Funny thing he said was some big hat General walked around with some enlisted female and gathered everyones passport into a large velvet bag with a string (he said like a big Crown Royal bag) and when they got it back on their way out, it wasn't even stamped that they were there.

    I posted about my trip on SighSee way back in 2010. That was before the days of the archives. I'm sure a lot has changed from back then. Koryo's newsletters are saying they expect DPRK to open to tourists in 2024, but of course nothing is ever fully certain.

      It's very easy. Just sign up with a tour company such as Koryo. Though you obviously have to wait as the country is still closed, but check back next year.

    North Koreans seem to like Eastern Europeans aka former commies because everytime I watch some Slavs go there they drink alco with their guides, dance with the locals etc. I imagine Westerners are treated less kindly and with more distance.

    Went there in 2018 with young pioneers tours. One of the best (and totally fake, limited and artificial) trips of my life. Wanted to go back with a friend this spring but the country is closed "due COVID" (lol).

    My experience is very different from the other 2 guys that posted about their trip.

    I went in March 2019 with Uritours, 6 days/5 nights., Total was 1330 euro including flights between Beijing and Pyongyang. Some people in my group took the train back and it was cheaper for them.

    My biggest worry before going was that it is a group tour, I had never done one before and worried that it would be boring. Maybe I was lucky but I got along with the others in my group and the guides were chill and we could ask them stuff and the day are filled.

    When I was looking at what tour to book, I didn't want large group or dumb activities like workshop and the such. The tour I found was limited to 12 people and stayed at 3 different hotels so there was not as much time wasted travelling by bus. We were 7 in my group, + 2 guides and drive, so 10 people in a small bus, all men. The "main" guide switched to a woman guide on the 3rd day when we left Pyongyang.

    I got my NK visa at Beijing airport and upon landing the guide took our passport. Everyone's luggage's was checked but took only about 1min for everyone except 1 guy that had a book written in arabic so they asked him questions about what the content of the book was.

    We were told the rules about taking pictures:
    -If you take a picture of the leaders statue or portrait, you have to take them as a whole, you can't cut off the legs/arms/head, etc
    -Don't take pictures of the military
    -Don't take pictures of people without asking

    At first it is kind of scary because you don't want to do something bad so you ask if you can take pictures of things but you eventually relax and just take pictures of everything.

    I took a video and picture of military trucks (like a dozen) passing by and the people that were in the street waved at them but the guides didn't seem bothered. We have never been told not to take a picture, to delete a picture and they never looked at the picture we took.

      The food was alright, pretty normal hotel food. Breakfast is always at the hotel. Lunch was wherever we happened to be. I only had 1 dinner at every hotel (so 3), 1 time at some illuminated fancy building and the last diner is at a restaurant boat.

      As expected, you cannot leave your hotel or the group. I happened to be the only 1 in the group drinking alcohol as 5 members were muslims and the other didn't drink, so on the 2nd day a guide invited me to a bar next to the hotel after we were done with the day so I had a chat with him and went to the guides table after dinner to have a beer with them. Another guy asked if we could go have coffee next to a restaurant we had lunch at and so we went after lunch. So there was some flexibility with the guides, on the last day before the restaurant boat the woman guide said she would bring us to where she likes to have her coffee so we went to some fancy coffee place that was underground under a park, that felt like a secret fancy place for the elite out of view of the poor.

      The day were pretty filled, we met at 8am in the hotels lobby and came back around 6pm for dinner, dinner is done at about 8-9pm and then you are free to roam inside the hotel, play on very used pool table or babyfoot, buy something at the convenience store inside the hotel.

      We didn't go to some cringe show or pizza making or whatever. It wasn't listed in the tour activity and thats perfect with me.

      Our guides were chill, we could ask them stuff about things work, like food ration, military services of our guides, told us joke and tough some curse words, showed each other pictures of our family, kids, home. They had smartphones of really shit quality, cheap plastic and black display under the sun. We went to a shhoting range and I asked them which of them was the best marksman and so the 2 had a competitions. The loser said something like "I'm not good with a rifle, I used a Ak-47". Our guides were not the average north korean, but they are human and acted as such, you can have a normal conversation with them.

      The first 2 days, you are feeling really weird, because you hear about this is staged so you always wonder what if fake and what is real but you eventually realise that it is not staged. They just show you want they want you to see, obviously. But they can't hide that most of the time, the bus you are on is the only car on the 10 lines highway and it has to zig zag to avoid the giant potholes. They can't hide the poor farmers working with their hands and 0 agricultural machinery. Villages in ruins by the roads, there is almost no trees. Hotels outside Pyongyang lose electricity and have hot water for 15min in the morning, the normal people don't eat as well as we did.

      It is a shit country, but it is a unique experience.

      Picture: my tour guide and military guy at the DMZ, he stayed with our group when traveling within the DMZ so we could ask him question despited there being 3 large buses with chinese tourists. After the DMZ, I saw our guide give the guy a big carton of cigarette, when I asked her "did you bribe him" she replied "shhhhhh, you didn't see anything".

      It is a shit country, but it is a unique experience.

      Picture: my tour guide and military guy at the DMZ, he stayed with our group when traveling within the DMZ so we could ask him question despited there being 3 large buses with chinese tourists. After the DMZ, I saw our guide give the guy a big carton of cigarette, when I asked her "did you bribe him" she replied "shhhhhh, you didn't see anything".

      Sounds interesting. Also nice digits.

      >My experience is very different from the other 2 guys that posted about their trip
      That's because you actually went there. Those "2 guys" are one samegay who never went there and was larping based on what he was on Vice videos. It's obvious in this thread who has been to DPRK and who has not.

    The food was alright, pretty normal hotel food. Breakfast is always at the hotel. Lunch was wherever we happened to be. I only had 1 dinner at every hotel (so 3), 1 time at some illuminated fancy building and the last diner is at a restaurant boat.

    As expected, you cannot leave your hotel or the group. I happened to be the only 1 in the group drinking alcohol as 5 members were muslims and the other didn't drink, so on the 2nd day a guide invited me to a bar next to the hotel after we were done with the day so I had a chat with him and went to the guides table after dinner to have a beer with them. Another guy asked if we could go have coffee next to a restaurant we had lunch at and so we went after lunch. So there was some flexibility with the guides, on the last day before the restaurant boat the woman guide said she would bring us to where she likes to have her coffee so we went to some fancy coffee place that was underground under a park, that felt like a secret fancy place for the elite out of view of the poor.

    The day were pretty filled, we met at 8am in the hotels lobby and came back around 6pm for dinner, dinner is done at about 8-9pm and then you are free to roam inside the hotel, play on very used pool table or babyfoot, buy something at the convenience store inside the hotel.

    We didn't go to some cringe show or pizza making or whatever. It wasn't listed in the tour activity and thats perfect with me.

    Our guides were chill, we could ask them stuff about things work, like food ration, military services of our guides, told us joke and tough some curse words, showed each other pictures of our family, kids, home. They had smartphones of really shit quality, cheap plastic and black display under the sun. We went to a shhoting range and I asked them which of them was the best marksman and so the 2 had a competitions. The loser said something like "I'm not good with a rifle, I used a Ak-47". Our guides were not the average north korean, but they are human and acted as such, you can have a normal conversation with them.

    The first 2 days, you are feeling really weird, because you hear about this is staged so you always wonder what if fake and what is real but you eventually realise that it is not staged. They just show you want they want you to see, obviously. But they can't hide that most of the time, the bus you are on is the only car on the 10 lines highway and it has to zig zag to avoid the giant potholes. They can't hide the poor farmers working with their hands and 0 agricultural machinery. Villages in ruins by the roads, there is almost no trees. Hotels outside Pyongyang lose electricity and have hot water for 15min in the morning, the normal people don't eat as well as we did.

        No, they gave a paper visa before the flight and didn't stamp my passport upon landing, I don't recall what they stamp or if they gave some landing permission sticker. There was a guy from South Africa with me and he has his NK visa inside his passport because NK has an embassy in South Africa so he received his visa there.

        if the girl is in the tourism industry, restaurants, sites and such she has probably been trained and encouraged to be friendly to the point of being charming/flirty in an old fashioned innocent way - happy tourists might book a second trip, bring back gifts for the DPRK guides, and maybe even the girl. One serving girl who danced and sang at the restaurants was quite notorious for going too far, I was not the only guy she open mouth kissed, she ended up no longer working, with the other girls claiming she got married and was pregnant, but I feel she disappeared.

      Would you go back again after the borders reopen or do you feel you've seen everything there is to see with how you can only go on a government approved tour? I'm hoping to go myself when the borders finally reopen

        I would go back but the itinerary would need to be significantly different or if a friend asked me to go or go when there is an event or something.

    My dad who was Cuban used to go there regularly to teach at the medical schools before he retired. Cuba and DPR Korea are literally top allies. He said that most people over there just keep up appearances, but that the Soviet-styled mentality over there among civilians is just more of a style than anything else. It's just who they are and they know it sets them apart from the rest of the world. He would always say how it was the safest place in the world and that people live very simple lives over there. Marijuana is also absolutely not regulated at all; like it isn't even recognized and it grows wild everywhere.

    North Korea is prepping to invade South Korea so right now is by far the worst time to go there as a westerner. I wouldn't recommend it.

          For food and money you stupid Black person, not to invade South Korea. Their population is literally starving. I can't tell if this is bait or not.

            Their population has been starving since the 90s. Yet in that time they've managed to develop thermonuclear weapons and are working on ICBMs as we speak. I don't know if you've been paying attention or not but they have the 4th largest military in the world and have been training nonstop to kill Americans since the 50s. Kim Jong Un had numerous opportunities in the last 6 years to reach out to other countries to get food and instead he decided to cut all communications with the western world. It's pretty fricking obvious he's planning on invading South Korea.

              It's not starving the people, or they would be all dead. But rather, finding the maximum food input to work output ratio.

    Sure, no problem.
    They won't take you to the statue then, but be sure to inform them on arrival for them to save face.
    I assume it's the same when you want to visit the Wailing Wall without wearing a funny hat.

      I was in Pyongyang in October 2005, so this information is VERY old. The only way westerners can visit DPRK is with a government-approved tour group. At that time there was a spa in the Yanggokdo Hotel where "full service," which they acknowledged meant fricking, was available with Chinese girls for 132 euros. I did not partake, but another member of my tour group did. Whether this is still the case I don't know. Why don't you investigate and let us know (not that I intend to ever go back)?
