Starting and ending in Beijing, this incredible six-night tour truly is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity! Check out what you’ll be getting up to:
Day 1: The tour begins in Beijing, where you’ll catch the 5:30pm sleeper train to Dandong. Relax on the train and check out the beautiful Chinese landscapes before getting some sleep!
Day 2: Arrive in Dandong and check into the Rui Xin Dan Tie Hotel. In the morning you’ll collect your visa from the Embassy, before you have the rest of the day to explore. Why not visit the Tiger Mountain, Great Wall or take a boat trip along the Yalu river?
Day 3: Meet at Dandong station and board the train into North Korea. You’ll cross the Yalu river on the Sino-Korea Friendship bridge over to Sinuiju, before transferring to a North Korean train to meet your experienced tour guides. Admire the stunning Korean countryside as you make your way to Pyongyang and enjoy a packed lunch of delicious, authentic Korean food. You’ll reach Pyongyang in time for dinner and head to the Yanggakdo hotel, where you’ll spend your evening relaxing as you please.
Day 4: After breakfast you’ll be driven to Mount Myohang to visit one of most beautiful areas in the Korean peninsula. After, you’ll take a trip to the International Friendship Exhibition Hall, a huge complex home to over 90,000 gifts given to Kim Il Sung and his son Kim Jong Il - including two trains given to Kim Il Sung by Chairman Mao and Joseph Stalin! You'll then return to the hotel where you can bowl, swim, play pool or relax in the bar.
Day 5: After breakfast you’ll visit Mansudae Monument, before heading to Panmunjom in Kaesong - the 'truce village' which straddles the North-South Korean border - to visit the Armistice Hall. You’ll hear a talk on the history of the site, before heading to the Military Demarcation Line, the Koryo History Museum and the Tomb of King Wang Gwon (talk about historical!). After lunch you’ll return to Pyongyang to view the Tower of Juche Idea and enjoy a traditional Korean meal, before returning to the hotel for the evening.
Day 6: After breakfast you’ll return to the train station for your journey back to Sinuiju and out of North Korea, enjoying lunch on the train. You’ll arrive back in Dandong at 4:30pm, before taking the 6:30pm train to Beijing.
Day 7: You’ll arrive back in Beijing at 8:30am.
