Would you go to North Korea if the trip were 100% free?
Most Helpful Guy
I would love to go. I've lived and studied in South Korea and took a class on North Korean society and politics. I've also read a lot of books about it. It's the country that really fascinates me. I had the possibility to go there for a few days but couldn't afford it. It would have cost me around 3,500-4,000 bucks and that was simply too much money for me. Plus, I wanted to go together with my girlfriend but she is not allowed to enter North Korea because she is South Korean (ironically, Americans are allowed to enter). I don't think I want to go there on my own. I find the country very interesting but it would still creep me out too much. However, my best friend is willing to go with me when we have more money, so we're sort of saving for that. He is a big guy, 6'2'', 230 pounds, big beard, strong... of course that won't prevent us from getting into trouble but at least I would feel safer than on my own ;-). And another good reason to go a little later is that I am currently learning Korean (for my girlfriend of course) and it would be cool to go there and actually understand what the guides are talking about among each other.0
