Visitor’s Guide To North Korea Published PDF Print E-mail


A French travel guru just issued info on how to enjoy a trip to one of the most dangerous destinations in the world. Your travel4seniors.com editor can attest to the reputation from experiences in the early 1950s as a member of a reactivated U.S. Navy Carrier Air Group during the Korean War.
