Fancy a citybreak?

NORTH KOREA HAS launched a new tourism website, reportedly in a bid to appeal to overseas visitors.

It’s full of photos of people in North Korea having the absolute time of their lives, under the watchful gaze of Kim Il-Sung and Kim Jong-Il.

The website went live earlier this month, despite North Korea currently having a total ban on overseas tourists due to the Ebola crisis, the Guardian reports.

And the photos are an opportunity for the isolated country to show off. The site showcases North Korea’s facilities and living arrangements.
