Hyangsan

A mountainous county, Hyangsan has long been a popular tourist destination with North Koreans, and the refurbishment of its striking, pyramid-shaped hotel in 2010 also gave a boost to international tourism.
Kick off your visit on the 14th (Thu): contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Pohyonsa Temple and then examine the collection at International Friendship Exhibition.

For photos, maps, and more tourist information, go to the Hyangsan road trip planning website.

Bucharest, Romania to Hyangsan is an approximately 25-hour combination of flight and car. The time zone changes from Eastern European Standard Time to Pyongyang Time, which is usually a 7 hour difference. Finish your sightseeing early on the 14th (Thu) to allow enough time to drive to Pyongyang.

Probably the world's most reclusive country, North Korea remains off the radar for most tourists. The few travelers who realize it's actually possible to take a trip to North Korea end up exploring only a small part of the country, accompanied at all times by official government guides. Isolated from the rest of the world, this communist state exists outside the realm of the 21st century, playing by its own rules and living in the shadow of its hereditary rulers' powerful personalities. If you do choose to spend your vacation in North Korea, prepare to discover a place quite unlike any other in the world--where the surprises may in turn delight and unsettle.
