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.

  • Absolutely disgusting, the supreme leader looked the best though. Good thing he requested us all to climb the thing to show respect and it became a serious free for all. People started fighting each other and kicking each other off so my Friend and I started pretending to fight so no one would get in on it, even if anyone had gotten in it they would easily fall because they are so malnutritioned (most thrive on the satisfaction of pleasing the great leader but every once in a while someone falls into a deep sleep) anyways we got to the top and skydived off it and then returned home with weird green rocks in our pockets
  • I was walking with my bro here, then someone told us to climb the monument as a respect to the great leader We agreed, then we climbed that monument until the peak After that, my bro decided to pee to show dominance. No one could stop him except me because we were on the peak of the monument I decide to pee there as well. People were screaming in awe, but then the militaries came and we're under arrest now. Wonderful experience, 10/10 would visit it again Nb. The guards are talking about ropes and hanging, but no worries I'll be okay
  • While I was here there was a feminist with us. She got triggered and kept shouting that those hands are not female hands, the tour guide asked her to stop shouting and be quite but she kept on shouting "DON'T TOUCH ME!!" Korean cops had no chill, they put 8 lead shots, she was speechless after that. It was nice and calm after this. 10/10 - Would recommend everybody except shouting feminists.
  • Hello again. As usual, this place is a "great" tourist attraction. After all, who wouldn't want to get their families and friends hanged in public to show respect to the Supreme Leader? I "recommend" you visit this place.
  • Not sure. It seems like the entire area smells like an old turtle tank. Pretty neat monument, really aesthetic flooring. I forgot toilet paper and had to twerk on the corners of the monument to get a decent clean. **bring you're own toilet paper!!** maybe
