OVERVIEW
Thinking of North Korea, many opinions, images and words would come to mind but have you ever thought of North Korea as a tourist destination? As a one-party state with a centrally planned industrial economy, what is life like in North Korea? On the other hand, China has been among the world's fastest-growing economies since its opening to foreign trade and investment and implementing free-market reforms in 1979.

This tailor-made program is designed along with three main areas - by looking into the economic systems, brands and youth’s aspiration through observation, sharing sessions, and interaction with the locals. To grasp a holistic understanding and discover the similarities and differences between North Korea, Beijing (China) and your home country, teachers and students will be participating in sharing sessions and discussions on history, architecture, food, public transport, as well as visiting schools, corporate offices and attending local performance.
