Pyongyang to Vladivostok: North Korea tourism authorities allow new route
Exit through border with Russia a seldom-used route for visiting foreigners

North Korean tourism authorities will soon allow foreign visitors to take a train from Pyongyang to the extreme northeast of the country and then cross the border into Russia, the Beijing-based Koryo Tours said on Friday.

The new route is the first major destination and protocol change in the North Korea tourism industry since authorities opened up the city of Sinuiju to Westerners in 2013.
