September set to see surge in North Korea tourism, insiders say

Most Beijing-Pyongyang Air Koryo flights reportedly sold out for event-heavy month

September is shaping up to be one of the biggest months for tourism to North Korea this year with many transit options to Pyongyang already fully-booked, information provided by multiple DPRK travel industry insiders suggests.

The uptick in demand will coincide with the country's 70th National Foundation Day anniversary and related events on September 9: including the first mass games in five years and other perfomances throughout the month.
