North Korea launched their tourism site. The site is to appeal to international tourist even though its borders are closed and it's written in Korean. Yeah! Let's go there! Let's hope we don't get put in a work camp! No Bibles allowed!
I would love to see what North Korea is really like but I bet people never get the chance. I had no idea that this was the only way you could see the country, of course you are only going to get to see what THEY want you to see.From what I have read about tourism in North Korea tourists are pretty much herded onto an island and only allowed to "tour" certain areas and that is with a guide. You never know though people may really want to see what it is like over there.
I will have to see if I can find the article again. It was from a blogger and they were part of a tour group that was some kind of goodwill mission to North Korea. Her description of everything was really humorous and she had a lot of pictures, but she admitted it was really scary when they were there. In her opinion, the people of North Korea are just brainwashed to an enormous degree.I would love to see what North Korea is really like but I bet people never get the chance.

Somehow I feel that the chances of a snowball surviving in hell, is slightly better. The last thing a closed country like North Korea needs are citizens who have open minds. It's closed minds which keep them in power.My hope is that Kim Jong Un and his generals, in their infinite stupidity and greed, will accidentally and irreversibly open up the country to capitalism.
This just makes it more interesting haha. But in all seriousness, I'd really rather not go. It could be a trap. Who knows what their "great leader" has in mind really. I won't risk it.Or Kim Jung Un is bipolar and off his meds this month. We'll have to wait and see.
