About this book

This is a new edition of the first travel guide to cover the practical aspects of travelling to and around North Korea – a country which both intrigues and concerns the international community. Everything a genuine traveller needs is here, including red tape and security issues, access from South Korea and Beijing, routes outwards from Pyongyang, and opportunities for excursions into unspoilt countryside. Altogether Bradt Travel Guide: North Korea is a fascinating insight into the culture and history of a country that currently exists in virtual isolation from the rest of the world.
