Embark on North Korea Expats Life
From the Mysterious Fragrant Mountain of Myohyangsan to the eight historic provinces of Korea, North Korea has much to offer to expatriates, tourists and travelers from all over the world. However, the growing expat North Korea community is mainly attracted by its economic challenges, e.g. in the mining sector, and the urban development in Pyongyang and Chongjin. Expat living in North Korea surely can face a challenge once in a while, but at the same time it is a wonderful intercultural experience you will never forget.
