Is North Korea safe?
North Korea is considered one of the safest tourist destinations in the world. Our customers have had no problems with either crime, or the authorities. The only way you are likely to put yourself in a difficult situation is by criticizing the North Korean leaders or government. Please note that you must obey all rules and laws set by the North Korean government and outlined by the tour guide upon arrival. Failure to do so may put you at risk of arrest.
I am American/Japanese/South Korean/Israeli, how is my tour experience affected?
Tourists traveling on a U.S., South Korean, Israeli, or Japanese passport cannot travel to North Korea at this time.
What are the moral implications of visiting North Korea?
Some believe it is wrong to visit North Korea as your money is going directly to their government rather than into the hands of locals. However, others believe visiting the country can help benefit the people you meet by making them aware of the outside world. There isn’t really a clear right or wrong answer to whether you should visit or not so we advise you to research the topic yourself and make your own decision. One thing is clear, you will gain a better understanding by seeing the country yourself rather than relying on the media to tell you about North Korea.
Can I video the trip when I travel in North Korea?
Yes, there is a special service. You have to ask for it. You can have Korean photographer to shoot the entire trip while you travel in North Korea. The cost of the video is 200-300 RMB per person depending on the number of requests.
