  • From the windows of our hotel, from bounce, residents do their gymnastics facing the River on a haunting music written by their leader. Little, if any, river traffic, the only ships seen are a boat-restaurant (impossible to know if it is active) and a kind of junk. We have seen a human chain draw water with all sorts of containers and then go to water the trees in the city. The engineers are trying a of the culture on the water. The food of the nation remains a problem.

  • Maybe, there are organizations that follow as a tourist resort. Is moderately paced, I would say that you realize that this river because of the frequent crossings by bridges. Needed to cross the city nothing else

  • Nice river and waterfront, where you can take a walk with your guides, and enjoy the views. If you are lucky, you might see some locals exercising or dancing.  more »

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.
