Chollima Statue, Pyongyang

2.3
Chollima Statue reminds residents of the fast development of the country. The monument shows a horse, a man, and a woman riding it. The couple symbolize the working class, who worked at the "Chollima speed." The horse, believed to have travelled 400 km (about 250 mi) a day, stands for the Chollima movement, which encouraged fast economic development. Built as a gift to Kim II-sung, the site also boasts beautiful greenery surrounding the site, which provides for a pleasant stroll to enjoy the landscape.

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.
