North Korea in pictures

North Korea has been a hot topic worldwide in recent weeks. Headlines are a plenty, Kim Jong Un is receiving visits from the likes of Dennis Rodman, and nuclear missiles are being prepared to level the ROK and Guam. So, being a short way north of the border, I thought I might go have a little peek.

Yes, that’s right! Myself and 2 friends took a little trip down to Dandong (A Chinese city on the border with North Korea) over the Qing Ming holiday…

Writer’s block is a b*tch! Dandong was nice, seeing Korea was amazing! Here are some photo’s.

The next group of photos were taken from within North Korea, on a boat trip for 50RMB. Yes that’s right! For only £5 you can pop over the border.
