The Monument to Party Founding commemorates the establishment of the Workers' Party of Korea that rules the one-party state of North Korea

The U.S. Department of State is pretty clear in its stance on travel to North Korea, strongly urging U.S. citizens to “avoid all travel to North Korea/the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK).” The story of student Otto Warmbier alone is enough to scare people away.

But despite government-issued warnings, some people (the curious, the adventurous, etc.) do still go. It is possible to travel to North Korea as an American, and contributor Harvey Silikovitz is proof of that. In his write-up for JohnnyJet.com, Harvey discusses how he was able to travel to the DPRK legally, what accommodations and tours were like, sensitive subjects and how he learned to handle them, and much more. I don’t encourage travel to North Korea, but I do recommend you read his excellent post!
