Holiday to North Korea, anyone?

Not for me, thanks. But just in case you did, I got this in my Inbox today:

Destinia, first online travel agency to offer flights on the state-owned airline of North Korea


No trains to Pyeongyang today. At the closed station in Imjingak built when relations were better between north and south. Taken 2012

Exclusive booking of flights from Pyongyang to Shenyang, Vladivostok and Beijing on Air Koryo – all the rogue states, basically.

Destinia just closed an agreement to become the first online agency in the world to offer flights on Air Koryo, the state-owned airline of North Korea.

The international online travel agency, with more than 63 million unique visits in 2013, according to ComsCore, will be pioneer to offer never before sold routes: Pyongyang-Shenyang (from 365€) and Pyongyang-Vladivostok (from 405€). Destinia will also offer online booking of the route Pyongyang-Beijing for just 465€, compared to 650€ previously sold in exclusivity by AirChina. Prices are for round-trip airfare, including taxes.

    I’ve always wanted to try one of those North Korea tours! I know it’s not real travel, you have to give up your cell phone and there’s no internet and you have to be accompanied by an official at all times. But even still, to say you were in North Korea whether you see the reality of it or not, that would be amazing.
