North Korea launches intranet-based tourism promotion website

N.Koreans can now access "Kwangwang" website to browse options and plan itinerary: DPRK Today

Pyongyang has recently launched what it says is the “highly popular” Kwangwang website, an apparently intranet-based tourism website which allows North Koreans to plan holiday itineraries.

Existing as it does on North Korea's private intranet, the website is not accessible outside the country, but two articles in state media provided some information about what the website contains, and how the government's definition of the term “tourism” is changing.
