Living in Shanghai, the epitome of a bustling city, can get tiresome at times. With its towering skyscrapers and population of nearly 25 million, it’s hard to find nature or an empty stretch of land in this crazy city. For those who want a short break from the hectic situation that is Shanghai, you can easily travel to exotic destinations, such as Mongolia or Tajikistan or even North Korea, with the help of Koryo Tours. While one may want to see the vast plains of Mongolia or the Kim Il Sung Square in North Korea, it is challenging to visit these places alone because of their lack of transportation or political situation. With experts that have dedicated their lives to tourism in remote territories, Koryo Tours works to provide responsible tourism to the world’s most isolated and least understood places. Visiting these exotic destinations is truly a once in a lifetime opportunity!
