5th Part: North Korea – How to invest in North Korea

This is the 3rd part of a multi-part posts. North Korea has been getting a lot of attention recently and all for the wrong reasons. Dennis Rodman’s diplomatic mission, nuclear weapons, potential war, mysterious crazy behavior, propaganda and the list goes on. I decided to compile together a collection of North Korean pictures and documentaries to get a better view inside of the hermit Kingdom. Some of it is funny, sad, disturbing and weird.

Here is few collections of beautiful pictures of the hermit kingdom.

Inside North Korea: tourist photos of Pyongyang and the surrounding area
By The Telegraph

An eight-lane super highway in North Korea is almost devoid of traffic in this image taken by Swedish photographer Björn Bergman. The road - which stretches around 160km from capital Pyongyang to the border with South Korea - is also in a state of disrepair.

Björn Bergman spent nine days in North Korea capturing the life of locals. It took him two years to get a visa and once inside the secretive nation, he was whisked around the country on an official tour bus. Björn said: "My rule as a photographer is shoot first, then ask. The guards were very hostile. At the hotels they told us to stay in and would not allow us to leave without guides. We tried three times but didn't get further than three metres before they told us to go back. A hostess stands outside the train at a Pyongyang Metro station Picture: Photo2be.com / Barcroft Media
