Korea Peace Tours has been established by U.S. peace activists to allow more people from the United States and elsewhere to visit the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) or North Korea and to experience the country, the culture and its people first hand.
Most Americans do not know that there has been a vast expansion of tourism from many countries to the DPRK in recent years.
Nothing takes the place of a first hand experience in learning about another country and another people.
In May 2015 a delegation of women from the United States, including Gloria Steinem, visited North Korea and traveled throughout the country. That was a powerful grassroots statement for peace.
Millions of people in the United States would like to see a new U.S. policy toward North Korea. Instead of endless hostility, threats of war and harsh economic sanctions it is time to sign a Peace Treaty ending the war between the United States and the DPRK once and for all. It is time to normalize relations. Instead of being spoon fed demonized stereotypes of the DPRK, the Korea Peace Tours mission is to help build mutual understanding by providing people in the United States and elsewhere an opportunity to visit and see the DPRK for themselves.
Korea Peace Tours is pleased to announce that it is sponsoring our second trip, an amazing 7 days, 8 nights tour from August 5-12 that will visit cities and towns throughout the DPRK.
The August 5-12 itinerary we have designed in partnership with Glocal Encounters Tour Company offers a wide range of sites and experiences in the capital city Pyongyang, in smaller historic towns and cities, and a trip to Panmunjon at the DMZ that still separates northern and southern Korea.
