For many reasons, the North Korean capital (like the country itself) is a captivating place. Reduced to rubble during the Korean War, the city has risen from the ashes and now boasts grand soviet-era architecture and gigantic monuments that immortalize the country's ruling family. The city has strict movement rules so unfortunately you will not be able to explore Pyongyang as you please. However, InterNations can support you, as an expatriate, in understanding the laws and customs of this enigmatic city. As you may have limited access to the locals, InterNations can act as a social lifeline, connecting you with fellow expats in the city.
InterNations is the largest global network for expatriates, with communities in 390 cities across the globe. Get to know fellow internationals in your city, before you're moving, or when traveling somewhere and never feel like a stranger. InterNations makes it easy for you to stay in touch with your expat friends, both online and offline, so you can grow your network of friends and contacts from all over the world. Whether they live in Basel or Cairo, InterNations allows you to be close to them even if they are miles away.
Pyongyang can be a challenge for new expats but InterNations and our Pyongyang network are here to help.
