Visiting North Korea is an adventure of its own and with about 5000-6000 travelers in a year, this is the perhaps the last destination on anyone’s mind. But a new app call North Korea Travel wants you to visit the hermit kingdom from your armchair.


The app has information about getting the visas, frequently asked questions, history, culture and the ethics of traveling to North Korea. A Tour Guide Tips section offers insights by Koryo Tours manager Simon Cockerell, who has been leading groups into the country for more than 10 years. Other sections like hotels and restaurants gives you tips on where and what to eat.

Specific information like opening times, entrance fees and addresses of museums and other attractions are not mentioned in the app.
