Refuga is organising two trips in 2017 to one of the world’s most isolated countries. Check out this unparalleled chance to discover the entrepreneurial spirit in North Korea.
The first trip runs from 16 to 24 June 2017, followed by the second trip on 28 June to 6 July. North Korea is still one of the most secretive non-western countries in the world. During the trip, curious travellers will have the chance to explore this country in a unique way. Along with like minded people, travellers will visit and meet local companies, as well as Western companies doing business with North Korea.
Nine days in North Korea
Some of the programme highlights include the following.
- A 24-hour train ride from Beijing to Pyongyang.
- All the highlights of Pyongyang, such as Kim Il Sung Square and Mansudae Grand Monument.
- The Korean Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) border.
- Drinking beer with the locals.
- Meeting local artists and expats.
- Visiting Chollima Steel Complex, one of the North Korea’s most famous industrial sites.
- A hike around Myohyang mountain.
Prices start at $3,000, but if you’re travelling alone and have never done a trip with Refuga before, you pay just $200 more. There are only a few spots left on the 2017 trips so if you’re interested, sign up fast or get in touch with Refuga for more details.
