Rural North Korea

by in Asia, North Korea

Here is some footage taken on our drive south from Pyongyang to Kaesong and the DMZ. There were hardly any cars on the expansive six lane Reunification Highway, and as you can see from the video, the road itself was in very poor condition.

The next video was taken at a rest stop that straddles the Reunification Highway. The women selling tea, coffee, and fruit stopped momentarily to sing. The fellow on the harmonica is Nick Bonner of Koryo Tours.

One Response to Rural North Korea

  1. From James Drolet:

    The highway is in terrible condition! I was there in September 2011, it was hard to sleep on our bus as we kept being bounced around by the rough pavement. We had maybe 8 cars total pass us round trip, not counting the other tourist busses, filled mostly with Chinese tourists.
