Korea may not be the first country that comes to mind when planning an overseas trip. Although it’s not entirely closed to outsiders you can’t just buy a plane ticket and fly there whenever you want. Everyone needs a visa, which is only obtainable after paying for a tour, which in turn must be authorized by the North Korean government. What makes North Korea so intriguing is its self-imposed isolation and total lack of creature comforts. Seeing a place where cable television, mobile phones, mp3 players and fast food outlets are unknown makes for a surreal experience. North Korea’s openness, however, isn’t without caveats.

Don’t even think about trying to enter North Korea from South Korea. It’s impossible for tourists to go from one to the other freely. The only way to Korea is through Beijing and there are two transportation options from the Chinese capital. You can take a train or you can fly. Air koryo with its antiquated fleet of soviet jets in the North Korean airline and flights come and go regularly from Beijing to Pyongyang. If travelling by train, the journey will take about 24 hours. When on the North Korean side of the order it may be tempting to snap photos of train stations, but it’s important not to do this because it could put you in trouble. Upon arriving in Pyongyang you will be met by a state approved tour guide who will take you to your hotel.
