I'm just back from North Korea - this is what it's like. Imagine living like you were on a movie set. Welcome to Pyongyang, the capital of North Korea. Imagine having to wake up everyday of your life and perform like you are on a movie set and if you don't - it could mean death? This is real life North Korea today. I travelled to North Korea and filmed this so you can see what it's like. VISIT MY WEBSITE : FOLLOW ME ON FACEBOOK: FOLLOW ME ON INSTAGRAM: Some of this footage is secretly filmed. You'll get an idea of what it is like to travel to the most isolated country in the world. Visiting many places, including the capital Pyongyang and the poor countryside. Please do not judge the North Korean people in this video. It is impossible to make a fully balanced view of the country by traveling there - on a controlled guided tour. This video is simply presented to give you an indication of my travel experience and my thoughts after returning. North Korea is a unique, if not slightly weird experience. It was safer than many countries I've visited. Hopefully, this will give you another perspective on the DPRK. Thanks for watching. --------------------- Featured Music: All music is from the production website Opening sequence - "Oh The Humanity" Gavin Luke Kim Il Sung Square Dots: "In It To Win It" Gunnar Johnsen Contiki Travel: "Drone Alone" Stefan Netsman CCTV Cameras: "Artificial Dreams" Gavin Luke Yanggakdo Hotel Arrival: "Contraband" Christian Nanzell Subway Arrival: "Cardboard Suit" Niklas Ahlstrom Subway Trip: "Yeah Cool" Martin Veida Wide Motorways: "Airport Action" Gunnar Johnsen Chopper Flight: "Air 16" Gunnar Johnsen End Credits: "Either Or" Kata feat.

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.

Visit to the Strange Land of North Korea (DPRK)

This is a film about a traveller in the strange land called North Korea or officially the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK). Tours to the DPRK are tightly scheduled and normally include a visit to the demilitarised zone, museums and statues to Kim Il-Sung and Kim Jong-Il, Pyongyang’s amusements parks, chandelier-laden metro system and showcase entertainment facilities such as the Circus and the SchoolChildren's Palace. In addition to these, I took a flightseeing flight on a Mi-17 helicopter over the DPRK's capital city of Pyongyang. As well, as my tour was an extended one, it also went the northeast of the DPRK to the tri-country area around the Rason Special Economic Zone where the DPRK, China and Russia conjoin. The cult of the Kims is perhaps the most extraordinary feature of the DPRK. Images or statues of Kim Il-Sung and Kim Jong-Il are found everywhere. These graven images are effectively worshipped. This film shows scenes of the veneration of the Kims (Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il) that were witnessed. The government guides control both what you can see and also what you can take photographs of. If you take a photograph of the military, construction or something that they feel does not portray the DPRK in a positive light then they force you to delete the photograph. On exiting the country, the border guards also reviewed photographs to see if they conformed to the aforementioned standards. Despite these restrictions, this film contains images that accurately portray the state of the country as I saw it. --- Table of Contents --- 00:08 Overview of trip to North Korea (DPRK) 00:52 Beijing International Airport 01:40 Air Koryo to Pyongyang 02:31 US Navy visits the DPRK too 02:49 Pyongyang International Airport 03:13 Traffic policewoman directing traffic 04:09 Map of Pyongyang 04:19 pollution in Pyongyang 05:50 Chollima (mythical flying horse) 06:07 Arch of Triumph 07:04 Traffic policewoman in traffic 08:01 trolley bus ride 09:14 Pyongyang Metro System 11:56 Yanggakdo Hotel 13:19 6AM city wakeup call for Pyongyang 14:12 stockpiling gravel for construction 15:17 women encouraging hard work 16:07 Monument to Party Founding 16:39 Victorious War Museum (Korean War) 21:22 May Day in Moran Hill Park 21:53 Kaeson Youth Park 22:25 Mangyongdae Funfair 24:04 propaganda in Pyongyang 24:35 Mangyongdae Children's Palace 27:09 helicopter fightseeing over Pyongyang 30:07 Pyongyang Circus Theatre 32:43 Juche Tower 33:30 Kim Il Sung Square 34:20 Grand People's Study House 35:10 traffic policewoman 35:58 Jang Chon Model Cooperative Farm 37:29 luxury department store 37:58 peasants ploughing with oxen 39:22 Veneration of the giant Kim statues 43:18 Pyongyang at night 45:10 Mirae (Future) Scientists Street 45:48 Science and Technology Centre 47:14 View out over Pyongyang 48:05 Reunification Highway to Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) 49:59 Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) 52:39 Kaesong 59:00 Tomb of King Kongmin 1:01:10 Sokdamgugok (Sokdam Ravine) 1:01:40 Haeju 1:03:30 Suyangsan Falls 1:04:04 Sariwon 1:06:50 Mt.

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.
