  • More a Communist monument sumptuous for demonstration of power. It was the first we saw coming to Pyongyang. But there's no need to stop.

  • 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.
