At a glance

Without a doubt one of the top tours of the DPRK tourist season, the birthday of President Kim Il Sung is the biggest celebration of the year. We expect this to be a huge celebration with fireworks, mass dancing, possibly parades and a number of other events that will most likely be announced much nearer the time to mark the 108th anniversary of the President’s birthday. During the tour we’ll explore the must see sights of Pyongyang such as the Korean War Museum, ride the Pyongyang Metro, a 360 degree panoramic view of the city from the Juche Tower, explore Kim Il Sung Square and much more.

Aside from the special events linked to the birthday of President Kim Il Sung and the highlights of Pyongyang, our short tour takes you south to the infamous DMZ where you’ll see the famous blue huts with a military officer guide. We’ll even take you further off the beaten path to visit the concrete wall of the DMZ where we can catch a further glimpse of South Korean and US watch towers along the hill from the DPRK military post.

For those who want to see more of North Korea, this is the perfect opportunity to extend your tour onto Group B & C. From here we’ll head south west of Pyongyang visiting the beautiful port city of Nampo and a therapeutic hot spa resort located on the west coast, as well as factories , a farm, and a tour of one of the lesser visited cities. Our super long spectacular tour for Group C takes us to Mt Myohyang where the astonishing Friendship Exhibition is built into the mountain and holds gifts presented to both Kim Il Sung, Kim Jong Il and Kim Jong Un from other nations. We’ll also be visiting Kumsusan Palace of the Sun where President Kim Il Sung and General Kim Jong Il lay in state.

To further spice up the tour, Group C will be taking a visit to Sinuiju, the border town of the DPRK located next to Dandong in China across the Yalu River. We’ll be taking the domestic train from Pyongyang up to Sinuiju stay at the Dongrim Hotel in a small town just outside of Sinuiju. We’ll then be visiting the Pomhayanggi Cosmetics Factory, a local Folklore Park where you can engage in traditional Korean activities with the locals, and to watch the famous performance at the Bonbu Kindergarten.

This is what we believe to be one of the most exciting tours of the year. So don’t risk losing your spot and enquire now to secure your holiday to the DPRK.
