Tired of normal vacations like trips to Paris, London, or going backpacking in the Australian outback? For the traveler who has been everywhere, The Great Canadian Travel company just announced that they have procured Visa access to North Korea, and is now offering a 10-day, almost all-inclusive cultural tour of North Korea for CA $4,340(approximately US $3,981) for the 2014 season. A tour of the great leader’s personal basketball courts with Dennis Rodman not included.
But if you do buy this “steal of a deal,” you’ll be able to visit the war museums, metro stations and art galleries of Pyongyang, as well as experience North Korea’s premium spas, historical sites outside the main cities and even the border between North and South Korea where you can see the two countries “continue their decades old face-off.” The group will also visit an orphanage not usually included in guided group tours, and visit the US Atrocities Museum which details, you guessed it, the horrible things Americans have done to North Korea since the Korean War.
The tour will take place from September 4th-13th during which visitors will be able to see the celebrations for DPRK Day, the 66th anniversary of the founding of North Korea.
