Arirang gets green light in DPRK!
If you are considering a visit to the Hermit Kingdom late this summer, do be aware that the DPRK has enforced a time limit on U.S. tours in the past. Usually, visits are capped at four nights, and Americans are only allowed to enter and leave the country by plane. Though, if this changes, Koryo Tours expects to be able to arrange extensions and travel via train, depending on how and when restrictions are eased. Also, Arirang has been extended into October in the past, and starts early from time to time.
So, put concerns of global tension out of your mind for a while. If you've been waiting for the opportunity to reach a corner of the world that few outsiders get to see, this is your chance.
