North Korea: Beyond the Potemkin Illusion. 

 

Tourism in North Korea is nearly always decried as a grand exercise in fooling gullible foreigners, with visitors seeing nothing but gold in a gilded gulag of bombs and famine. North Korea tour leader Robin Tudge shows what really can be seen on a tour and how it challenges the West’s narrative about this country.

 

Robin Tudge is a writer, author and tour leader in North Korea. He is now taking a degree in paramedic practice.
