See Mass Games more affordably this year

UPDATE 9/2/2009: According to the Koryo Tours newsletter, the mass games will be extended to the 10th October–so an extra 2 weeks for Americans to visit DPRK this year.  Also, a quick mass games tour for 850 Euros will be repeated Sept. 24-26. Finally, Koryo Tours is resuming a tour of Turkmenistan this November.  I took this trip and recommend it.  Learn more about travel to Turkmenistan here.

    I recommend this tour company. If you want to see the DPRK with people who have access I recommend Koryo Tours. I went last year and I am going again this year. A great group of folks.

    I would love to go, but how do you sleep knowing your money is going to Kim Jong Il and his buddies?
