Koryo Tours is offering the least expensive North Korea travel deal I've ever seen. Granted, there aren't many tours to this corner of the world, so there can't be too many discounts. But, even in this limited field, a $1,000 jaunt to the most isolated country in the world is an incredible find.
For this low price, you can spend three days in North Korea in August (departing from and returning to Beijing). The price of the package includes flights, accommodations, guides, entry fees and the other basics of getting into and out of Pyongyang. You'll also get two chances to see Arirang – the Mass Games – and a tour of the country's capital, including the Juche Tower, Kim Il Sung Square and the Pyongyang Metro. Meals are also covered.
The trip runs from August 27 – 29, 2009, with the last date to book August 17, 2009. Students, children and groups of at least three are also eligible for discounts. And, Americans are allowed to take the trip.
There has been nothing like this deal, and the odds of it being offered again are rare. This could be the best chance you have to go to North Korea.
