Book Now on North Korea's International Holiday Site

By Gary Cutlack on at

North Korea has opened a new travel and tourism web site, designed to promote international travel to the notoriously hard-to-enter state via the medium of a colourful internet tour.

The DPRK Today site offers a glimpse at the sort of things incomers can expect to see during an aggressively curated trip to the country, making the state look like it's one permanent cross between a local village fete and a theme park of plenty. Obviously it's neither, but it does look less military than usual in these pink, fun-packed photos. [Guardian]
