I Sør-Koreas hovedstad Seoul er det en ølrevolusjon på gang, spesielt i bydelen Iteawon. I “Beer Craft Alley” ligger blant annet bryggeriene Magpie, Craftworks Taphouse, og The Booth. Alle bryggeriene er åpne for publikum, skriver Se og Hør.

Et annet tips verdt å ta med seg for både ølhunder og andre, er at en av Seouls kulinariske trender, pi-mek, kort og godt betyr pizza og øl.

Det kinesiske turistselskapet Young Pioneer Tours slutter å arrangere turer til Nord-Korea, melder nrk.no 

Etter at den amerikanske studenten Otto Warmbier (22) døde mandag, uttalte selskapet på sin Facebook-side at risikoen for utenlandske turister nå er for høy, ifølge nyhetsbyrået AP.

Warmbier lå i koma da han ble løslatt fra fengsel i Nord-Korea, etter å ha blitt dømt til 15 års straffearbeid for å ha stjålet et propagandaplakat fra et hotellrom. Han besøkte Nord-Korea som student i 2016.

Han var fra Cincinatti i Ohio.

Den kinesiske turoperatøren ligger i byen Xian, og har spesialisert seg på lavpristurer til Nord-Korea. Selskapet ble startet i 2008 av briten Gareth Johnson.

North Korea tourism: Flights over Pyongyang offered as new attraction

In an effort to create more activities for his people and foreign tourism companies, North Korea leader Kim Jung Un has reportedly allowed a Pyongyang flight club to fly citizens and tourists over the capital city, the Associated Press reported, according to the International Business Times.

Running since July, the flights on ‘ultralight’ aircraft fly over some of Pyongyang’s biggest sites like Kim II Sung Square, the Munsu Water Park and the May Day stadium.

The flights can cost as much as $150 for longer trips to $65 for shorter ones. The trips also reach an altitude of roughly 6,500 feet.

North Korean officials have said more than 4,000 citizens have climbed Pyongyang’s skies along with ‘hundreds’ of foreigners from 12 countries.

Compared to the other headlines North Korea’s made of late, the flights are likely some good news for North Koreans. 

The flights are also a boon to tourists who often visit museums or other closely monitored areas. Previously, the best view a tourist or North Korean could have was from the 492-foot tower in Kim II Sung Square.

However, while North Korea loosened its travel policy in 2010 to allow visitors from the United States, the State Department has consistently put out travel warnings to all U.S. citizens and asked they not attempt to visit North Korea.

The department’s official site says at least 14 U.S. citizens have been detained in North Korea over the last 10 years and that even being part of a tour group cannot ensure safety.

And there still are travel restrictions, or difficulties, for Americans to enter North Korea. Unlike visitors from China, who can take trains directly to the mainland, U.S. tourists must travel by plane, according to CNN.

And while journalists will have a tough time gaining visas, most other U.S. citizens can be approved for a visa with little trouble.

An updated Seoul guidebook will be published by the end of the year to reflect new tourist attractions and public transportation in the South Korean capital, a city official said Monday, yonhapnews.co.kr. reported.

“We’ve placed an order to make 100,000 copies of the new ‘Seoul Best 100’ by spending 160 million won (US$140,000),” the source said.

The new 120-page guidebook will be printed in five languages — Korean, English, simplified and traditional Chinese, and Japanese — the official said.

“We’d like to help tourists visiting Seoul, especially those coming for the first time, get a comprehensive grasp of attractions in the 25 wards in our city with just a quick skim through of this book,” the official said. “It’s kind of a basic book to learn about Seoul.”

There have been voices that the latest guidebook, published six years ago, does not reflect new attractions, including Dongdaemun Design Plaza, and new public transportation like Subway Line 9.

In making the new book, the city will launch a panel comprised of tour and promotion experts and foreigners residing in Seoul to find the city’s top 100 attractions by October, the official said. Public opinions will also be reflected in the book via online surveys, he added.

The guidebook will contain information on contact numbers, addresses, transportation, operation times, fares and visitor opinions, as well as basic information about the attractions, the official said.

In particular, the city has decided to not copyright the book, enabling everyone to make use of its content.
