North Korea has introduced a new tourism program
that hopes to attract more European visitors. According to Pyeongyang’s state-run tour website
‘DPRKorea Tour’, the program includes a large gymnastics performance and chartered flights
to Baekdu-san and Chilbo-san mountains. The website posted contact details of the
tour agencies it will work with based in the UK, Netherlands, Sweden and Czech Republic. The new program is seemingly aimed at attracting
tourists outside of China, where the majority of visitors to the North come from.
