I'm a frequent traveler to North Korea with North Korea is a must-see destination for any serious traveler. The place is packed with history and culture. An eye-opening experience, especially as contrasted with how the country is portrayed in the western news.


Absolutely fascinating capital of the "Hermit Kingdom." Though a bit frustrating not to being able to leave your guide behind to explore, the few glimpses of local life that you do get are well worth the journey.
