Aside from all the usual sites, May Day gives us one of the best opportunities to relax, meet, and hang out with locals during the celebrations on Moran Hill. Koreans take this holiday very seriously and you will more than be expected to sing, dance, and play around with them during the festivities. Could there be a better time to go?

Whilst celebrating we’ll be visiting all the must-see sights around Pyongyang city such as the Mausoleum, the recently renovated Korean War Museum, Kim Il Sung Square, the famous Pyongyang Metro, and much more! If you’ve got the energy to explore more with us, our Group B and C tour continues to the western coastal city of Nampo where we’ll see more of the industrial side of North Korea and partake in a relaxing hot spring bath located privately in our own room. We’ll also stop by the recently opened Pyongsong city to visit the local schools and museums,  stopping along the way to enjoy scenic countryside and some of the smaller towns.

During Group A of our tour, we’ve been given special access to an Mi-17 helicopter to take for a whirl around Pyongyang city for a unique aerial tour of the capital.

We’ll swoop around the iconic, 105-story Ryugyong Hotel, do a low flyby of the Taedong River passing the Juche Tower, have a great glimpse of May Day Stadium – the world’s largest stadium, and explore the many districts sprawling across the city for fantastic and unique photography opportunities. This joyride is completely optional and is €250 per person on top of the tour costs. If you are interested please let us know while booking.

Our Group C will then head up to Mount Myohyang, a beautiful mountain located further north of Pyongyang where the very famous International Friendship Exhibition hall is buried into the mountain displaying the large collection of gifts given to the DPRK leaders from all around the world.

To further spice up the Group C tour we’ll be making our way to Sinuiju, the bordertown 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 and are to be one of the first groups to stay at the Dongrim Hotel located in a small city just outside of Sinuiju. We’ll then be visiting the Pomhayanggi Cosmetics Factory, Sinamri Co-operative farm, a local Folklore Park where you can engage in traditional Korean activities with the locals, and will watch a performance by the Bonbu Kindergarten.
