Traveling to North Korea isn't really one of my travel lists but if I can go to North Korea I think I'd just observe their culture and not do anything about it or else maybe I'll be in jail.

I don't much about North Korea, but I did read a bit about the country and about tourism. I didn't think that it was possible to visit North Korea at all, but sounds like there are a few tourists in the country. I know that it isn't possible to travel around independently, it is simply not allowed, so the only option is to join a group tour. The tour guides are supposed to watch everything that the tourists say and do and the tourists are not allowed to speak to the locals. There are probably even more limitations, but a trip there would definately be a very different experience. It does sort of attract me to try something so different, and if I had the chance to go I would probably take it, but I would have find the details about safety etc before I accepted the trip.

North Korea is not a country that I have ever thought of going to. I imagine to go there a visa would be necessary. I am not sure if it has many sights. It is not a popular destination for tourists. Although I like to get off the track I would have to read up about safety before going there. I think flights might go there from Beijing possibly. Flights probably wouldn't go there from South Korea. I have met people that have worked in South Korea and it is a normal sort of destination. The government of North Korea I guess might not be too friendly. Really I would prefer to go to South Korea.

If I can go there, I really would like to see how the people are living their lives. I have always heard that people there are starving that North Korea need so much assistance of basic needs from China and other countries. Also, I would like to ask the people living there whether they really support what their leader is doing. I mean there is nothing wrong to maintain a certain military position to protect the country (more powerful nations are doing much much more than what North Korea is doing). But then, their leader is doing it with the aim of irritating other nations rather than actually increasing its own defensive power. Do those people really support their leader even though they are having harsh lives?
