Yanggakdo Hotel

This is the lobby of the Yanggakdo Hotel in Pyongyang, North Korea. I stayed here in September 2009 while on a group tour of the country. Granted, it’s not quite the Atlantis Dubai, but the rooms were decent, the draft beer was great, there was a bowling alley and karaoke bar in the basement, and you could even send packages via DHL (that was totally unexpected). Just don’t plan on straying very far – the hotel is located on an island, with guards posted at the bridges to ensure you don’t wander off into Pyongyang by yourself.
