  • Ugly, Soviet, dated in representative form. And Yes, placed on a highway with little traffic on the outskirts of the city. In fact this dream of reunification, place in a drab setting, fails in its purpose to celebrate the triumph of a possible rapprochement between the two Koreas. Almost to symbolize that basically they don't believe them anymore.

  • On 28 September 2017, we stopped at my request on the arch. Here, the desire is represented oversized and symbolically. For me at this point is of particular importance.

  • Not as big as I had expected. But still worth the photo opportunity. Somewhere to stretch your legs before the 3 hour drive down to the boarder.
  • This is the great leaders 'Golden Arches" the first MukDoonals in North Korea. The food is pretty good for NK. I had the signature KimJongUN Nukem Burger, hot and spicy rat meat with secret sauces, but the deep fried cockroaches are to die for, but hit and miss for fresh ones. They also have a drink called KockaKrola but it taste like fermented sewer juices , the locals love it.
  • Again they need to broaden their hours of operation. As soon as I had my camera prepped the exhibit was closed and I was pepper sprayed. 6:30AM- 6:31AM what kind of garbage is that?
  • Truely a WTF moment.
  • If the spots are unified

Where to stay in Pyongyang

Hotels remain just about the only form of accommodation in Pyongyang, with options ranging from budget stays to luxury complexes featuring restaurants, shopping, and even casinos. The one budget hotel is often filled, but on the other end of the spectrum, the capital has many more mid-range to pricey options with exciting amenities, including one that operates a casino out of the basement of its 47-story structure.
