The mysterious land of North Korea is one of the few places left on the planet untouched by mass tourism. The bustling capital city of Pyongyang is the natural first stop for travelers and expats alike, but look beyond the city and you will find an ancient land replete with millennia-old mausoleums and medieval fortifications, all nestled across a sweeping mountainous landscape that offers hints of Korea's rich history. North Korea has had economic difficulty in the past and as a result, the largest proportion of expats living in North Korea reside in Pyongyang as part of aid agencies or belong to the diplomatic corp within foreign embassies. With a population of close to 25 million, North Korea undoubtedly has great potential and provides a challenging and rewarding environment for expats who want to get off the beaten track. InterNations aims to support you, as an expatriate, in getting to know the expat community in North Korea and discovering the North Korean way of life in all its facets, from having the traditional kim chi to celebrating the Arirang mass games.
