As with many of the places I saw on my tour of North Korea this too was a visit worth remembering. You can go inside the arch to see plaques of other countries that have endorsed the idea of the meaning behind the arch. Wandering...More

It is on the main road from Pyongyang to Kaesong and DMZ (the border with South Korea). Usually your tour would stop here for half a minute for visitors to take pictures. It is nice for pictures but nothing much else to see around here.

En route to the DMZ we stopped to see the Arch of Reunification. For best photos you needed to stand on the double yellow lines in the middle of the road! No problem because no vehicles drive under the arch they all take the deviation...More

An impressively massive monument with sombre undertones just outside Pyongyang and straddling the Reunification Highway between Pyongyang, Kaesong and the DMZ. We saw it twice on the way to and back from the DMZ. The monument comprises of two statues of ladies in traditional dress...More

You will most likely stop there on your way to the DMZ. Notice that the cars have to go around the monument - special traffic rules in DPRK.

Fittingly visited on our way back from the DMZ, the Arch of Reunification appropriately straddles the Reunification Highway that connects Pyongyang to Panmunjom. The arch consists of two women in traditional Korean dress holding a sphere of a reunified nation. The sphere, of course, is...More

You'll stop here twice on the way to kaeson, and it is quite grand. Through the arch you can see the city and the empty roads.

Whilst I don't go along with the concept the engineering and construction is very impressive. Why feed your population when you can build another monument? A must see on the way to the DMZ.

This is on the city limits leaving/entering Pyongyang. The only chance you may get to see it is asking the driver to take the road that passes underneath it on the way to Kaesong. It would be easy to stop off and take photos as...More

This statue is my favourite among the thousands of statues/monuments you will see in North Korea. It's big, tall and beautiful. A highway runs right under it, but the traffic is so sparse there is no problem standing in the middle of the road taking...More
