North Korea’s Yangdok hot springs and ski resort now open for business

Operation appears to primarily target domestic visitors for the time being, state media suggests

North Korea's recently-completed Yangdok Hot springs and ski resort opened its doors to local visitors on Friday, the country's state media reported.

Reservations can be made through the Pyongyang Koryo International Travel Company, the country's state-run Korean Central Television (KCTV) said Thursday, with a manager telling the broadcaster that "many guests are signing up" to the stay at the resort.
