I grew up mostly in New England (the US) and partly in Germany but I spent most of my adult life in Asia. I'm up for living just about anywhere for a year to get to know the people and culture. I prefer clean basic huts on the beach to resotrs, but at the end of a roughing-it kind of trip sometimes a few nights in the right kind of upscale accomodate can strike a nice balance.

Todd Hi Katie, have you obtained a visa yet? I'd be interested to know how difficult it is. There's another trip on here to North Korea too: http://globetrooper.com/tour-of-a-lifetime-in-north-korea-2010

urbanomad I went last year to Pyongyang to check out the Mass Games and the city. My friends and I went with Koryo Tours, they're based out of Beijing (all the tours start from there). I thought they were very knowledgeable and the group was interesting (although I guess it's a certain kind of person that goes on holiday to North korea). I live in China and planning to go back to see other parts of the DPRK in the spring.

comehikewithmike Would love to see those pictures. I think it's easy to assume North Korea is colorless, when really I imagine it's an amazing dimension.

Katie Hi Urbanomad, How did you find the trip? Were the mass games good? I think i will still go with the company in Dandong as they are a fraction of the price. Do you think you will go back?
