There’s no way to sugar coat it. DON’T VISIT NORTH KOREA.
Those travel obsessed friends of yours probably have their heart set on visiting every country in the world. However, we’re here to tell you North Korea might just be one you want to skip. Seriously, these 12 reasons are EXACTLY why, and they’re anything but travel photo worthy…
1.) Electricity (or lack thereof).
2.) Arms Dealing With BAD People.
3.) Defections Are Rampant…And Deadly.
4.) North Korea’s Economy Is About The Size Of South Dakota’s.
5.) They Build Massive Toys That Have Zero Practicality.
6.) North Korea Has The 4th Biggest Army…But Has No Navy.
7.) Human Feces Fertilizer.
8.) Insurance Fraud As An Economy.
9.) Labor Camps.
11.) Three-Caste System.
North Korean law dictates that if you commit an offense, your family for three generations will bear your punishment. Since this usually means a lifetime in a labor camp (if not execution), that means children are regularly born in those same camps, and forced to work there for their entire lives as punishment. The most interesting offense to date involved Western movie DVDs that have been smuggled into parts of the country, which are illegal. The North Korean National Security Agency has begun raiding villages in the north of the country by shutting off the electricity to a whole village then storming into houses and checking which DVDs are stuck in the DVD player.
So… you still want to visit? (We didn’t think so.)
