North Korea promises ‘safer than London’ holiday to Russian tourists

Published on : Friday, August 25, 2017

north koreaNorth Korea is asking the Russian tourists to visit their country saying it is “safer than an evening walk in London”.

 

 

Nkorean.ru, a Russian company licensed by North Korea’s government, is offering some organised tours for groups of up to 10 people or individuals “to show the travellers the multi-faceted life of this most closed of countries”.

 

 

Anybody visiting North Korea is mandatorily checked before their trip and is always guided by local person to monitor the “adequate behaviour of the tourist and guarantee his safety.” Pictures of strategic and military facilities are banned and long talks with locals “are not recommended”.

 

 

Recently, North Korea conducted two nuclear tests along with dozens of missile tests since the beginning of last year which significantly increased the tension on the heavily militarised Korean peninsula and in defiance of UN Security Council resolutions.

 

 

As per the tour organiser which will offer a “full immersion in the culture of North Korea” will cost around  118,090 roubles (£1558). The trip will include visits to a farm, a mineral water factory, a Buddhist temple, walks in the mountains and an introduction to national cuisine. Visits to numerous museums to founding leader Kim Il-Sung are also on offer.

 

 

Some of the relaxing activities include walking on a beach, attending an aviation show and a beer festival.

 

 

It is, however, unclear how much popular these trips would be amongst the Russians who are more fond of travelling to Europe and staying at affordable resorts in Thailand and Turkey.
