DPRK expands tourist access to Wonsan Kalma Peninsula

Tourists may soon be able to stay adjacent to military bases in Wonsan

UPDATE (August 11, 2013): On August 4 North Korean state television broadcast footage shot at the new facilities on the Kalma Peninsula. You can see the footage on Youtube here.  This television broadcast was helpful at filling in some of the information gaps in the initial report posted on July 31.

To begin with, it appears that the newly refurbished beach resort next to the Kalma Hotel is named the Myongsasipri Beach Resort (명사십리해수욕장).
