About this title


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 a fascinating insight into the culture and history of a country that currently exists in virtual isolation from the rest of the world.

From the Back Cover:

Watch the spectacular Mass Games performance at Pyongyang’s May Day Stadium

Discover ancient temples and the rich Buddhist history of Myohyangsan

Stand at the border between North and South Korea at the DMZ

Join the procession to the statues of Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il overlooking Pyongyang

In-depth information on red tape, visas and culture etiquette

North Korea feels like a world apart, a secretive state often synonymous with radical politics and a distrust of foreigners. However, the country offers a rewarding and thought-provoking travel experience. Learn about the cult of the Kims in Pyongyang and then head down to Panmunjom to visit the Armistice Hall and Joint Security area.Trek to the volcanic mountain lake of Paektusan, the spiritual birthplace of Korea, or travel to the beautiful valleys and beaches of Chilbosan. Fully updated in its third edition and packed with practical information from planning your trip to little-visited side trips and detailed historical information, Bradt’s North Korea provides a comprehensive and compact guide to this intriguing and challenging country, whether you’re travelling with a tour group or from your own armchair.

Robert Willoughby is a freelance journalist who has worked and travelled extensively in Asia.
