What's it all about?
This is another of the big DPRK holidays!
As the weather starts to warm up, May Day gives us one of the best opportunities to relax, meet, and hang out with locals during the celebrations in the parks. North Koreans take this holiday very seriously and you will be expected to sing, dance, and play around with them during the festivities! There’s no better time to go.
Apart from the celebrations, Group A will be visiting all the must-see sights around Pyongyang city such as the Mausoleum, Korean War Museum, Kim Il Sung Square, the famous Pyongyang Metro, and much more! If you’ve got the energy to explore more with us, our Group B and C tour continues to the western city of Nampo. Here we’ll see more of the industrial side of North Korea and make use of a relaxing hot spring bath located privately in our own rooms. We’ll also stop by the recently opened Pyongsong city to visit the local school.
Group C will then continue up to Mount Myohyang -home of the very famous International Friendship Exhibition which is buried into the mountain. The exhibition displays a large collection of gifts given to the North Korean leaders from all over the world.
To add further spice to Group C tour we’ll be making our way all the way to Sinuiju on the Chinese border. We’ll take the domestic train from Pyongyang to Sinuiju and will stay at the Dongrim Hotel. We’ll then visit the Pomhayanggi Cosmetics Factory, Sinamri Co-operative farm, a local Folklore Park, and will finish off with a performance by the Bonbu Kindergarten.
