Desperate for money, North Korea opens up ‘full immersion’ tourism for Russians


Communist North Korea announced it is opening up the country for tourism for Russians and called it “safer than an evening walk in London,” according to Reuters.

A Russian travel agency licensed by North Korea’s government now offers organized tours for a group of up to 10 to “show the travelers the multifaceted life of this most closed of countries.”

Reuters reported that each guest traveling to the communist country must first be “checked” and will be accompanied by North Korean minders to ensure “adequate behavior of the tourist and guarantee his safety.”

According to Reuters, North Korea is attempting to open up a tourism industry due to a dire financial situation. During weeks of trading threats with the U.S. over North Korea’s continued development of nuclear missiles, Washington passed sanctions on North Korea that drove the country’s economy further into crisis.
