Photos - Pyongyang

We spend most time of our 2004 North Korea tour in Pyongyang. The North Korean capital is a showcase for the communist regime so tourists are allowed to photograph relatively much. We could not photograph anything we liked but still managed to shoot a bunch of nice photographs. We have pictures of monuments, street propaganda, the metro, dancing people and much more.

Tourists in North Korea have to walk a fine line between shooting to much and to little photos. Be too modest and you will only come home with the standard images, be too inventive and you may come home without any photos. We generally felt that we could have shot more but are still happy with the end result. We shot some really nice early morning cityscape pictures of the Pyongyang suburbs from our 34th floor Yanggakdo hotel room. We had a lucky shot at Pyongyang airport where we were picking up our cell phones. Our guides left us alone for a minute so we ceased the opportunity and managed to photograph a large part of the Air Koreo fleet. We managed to shoot another series of nice pictures during National Day celebration at Kim Il Sung Square. We also have images from Pyongyang railways station, the metro plus many monuments celebrating the Kim dynasty.
