Should you ever want to visit North Korea, you’d be entering a world where you can’t even take pictures freely. Your visit would be micromanaged to the point where you’d only see the positive side of the country, and not even be allowed to make a negative comment without the threat of prison. If that’s how visiting is like, living there must be even more intense. But if you’re part of a wealthy family in North Korea, then you live in a completely different world. In a country where poverty is the norm, being rich makes you a different breed of people with a different set of rules and privileges! With so many rules in North Korea, it’s all about finding the little things that you can use to show off just how much money you have!

10 Regular objects men and women cannot find in North Korea. Subscribe: https://goo.gl/Hnoaw3 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Because of strict United Nations sanctions and the harsh rules set in place by the North Korean government, its residents are limited in terms of what they can buy. You probably don’t think twice about buying a house, purchasing a Starbucks coffee, stocking up on sanitary napkins, or booking a weekend vacation. However, many North Koreans won’t be able to experience these things. If you’d like to see a list of items you can’t buy in the country, make sure to watch our video: 20 Things You Cannot Buy In North Korea. Did you know that buying a Coca-Cola is impossible to do in the country? Well, actually, it’s not entirely impossible. The soda brand doesn’t operate in North Korea at all, but that hasn’t stopped its citizens from bringing in counterfeit Coke from China. Another product that can’t be purchased in North Korea is Apple’s iPad. However, their leader, Kim Jong-un, is reportedly a fan of Apple products. Go figure! The citizens are also banned from purchasing hair dye to color their hair, magazines that aren’t approved by the government, and music from foreign and local artists. Not only that, condoms aren’t readily available either, they’re unable to get access to medicine to treat common ailments and viruses, and they aren’t allowed to buy Christmas trees during the holidays. Make sure you watch our video to find out why! We’ll show you even more shocking things you can’t buy in the country, including real estate, WiFi, healthcare, fertilizer, cable TV, DVD players, jeans, and cigarettes. After you watch our video and let us know which of these banned items surprised you the most. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Our Social Media: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/TheTalko Twitter: https://twitter.com/thetalko Instagram: https://instagram.com/the_talko ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- For more videos and articles visit: http://www.thetalko.com/
One year ago I went on a strictly guided 7 day-tour in North Korea where they took away my passport and did not allow me to explore anything on my own. North Korea was definitely the weirdest country I had ever visited and throughout that trip I kept wondering what life was like in the neighboring South Korea, because it used to be the same country just over 60 years ago. To answer my questions, this year I traveled to South Korea and made this video, where I compare my time in the North and my time in the South. I still have a lot of questions about the whole situation, but one thing was clear - the daily lives of the Korean people couldn't be any more different than they are right now.

UPDATE - one year after visiting North Korea I traveled to South Korea and made a video comparing my experiences in both of these two countries. Watch it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AJUSIWSaQX4 I've always been very interested in North Korea because it seemed to be one of the most unique and mysterious countries in the whole world. This is my day to day life throughout the 7 days that I spent in North Korea. You can never be sure whether things were staged or not in North Korea because you are only shown what they want you to see. You can't choose where or when you will be going to specific places, they simply tell you to hop on a bus and ask you to get off at one point or another. That is why I didn't want to offer my opinion about whether things were staged or not, whether they were good or not, or honest or not. My goal was to show you what my day to day life looked like when I was there and let you make up your own mind and judge for yourself. Do not judge North Korea only from what you see in this video. This is what they showed us and there's a reason they show some things and not show the others. Also, knowing how much control they exercise over the population, everything could have been staged only for us.

I had always wanted to visit North Korea. This fascination had gotten the best of me and I decided to venture into the mysterious country for a 7 day trip with Young Pioneer Tours. It was truly a life-changing experience. I learnt so many things about the history and culture. I also learnt that the North Korean people are very friendly. Many of them don't want to be governed by the Kim family but have no choice.
I tried to be as unbiased as possible, while just showing you the things you can expect to see if you YOURSELF decide to take a trip to North Korea one day.
I was only allowed to freely video things that the North Korean tour guide wanted me to. So this video is not meant as an expose of any sort. It is just a travel blog of my time in North Korea. I tried to remain as respectful as possible (while they held onto my passport).
I hope truly for peace and freedom for the people of North Korea. The North Korean people and myself wish for peace. The North Korean people don't all hate foreign people. They wake up, eat breakfast, go to work and love their families like we all do. It;s important that I made an effort to not demonize the people like Western media does.
I hope you enjoy the video! And let's all hope for a resolution to the North Korean conflict and for long-term peace and stability.
I hope you enjoy the video.
