Everything about it screams BACKWARD, but it’s still luxurious by North Korean standards.
Over the weekend, 130 Chinese tourists and journalists boarded the 39-year-old Man Gyong Bong, a former cargo ship that’s just been recently renovated and remade to become the DPRK’s very first cruise ship.
The ship took them from Rajin, a city in North Korea’s northeast close to the Russian border, to Mount Kumgang, a scenic resort that was initially jointly developed with South Korea but now seized by the government of the DPRK.
If you can put up with cracked compartments, crappy toilets with no running water, and the possibility that you might have to sleep on the floor because there aren’t enough beds, this might be one hell of an adventure to experience one of the world’s most exotic destinations!
