A first-hand "review" of the facilities complete with pictures. Despite needing to play nice with the regime, you can read a lot in between the lines of the Koryo Tours write-up here.
That is January snow? Wow.
This is going to be the largest ski area anywhere or whatever the propaganda was? Looks like Pennsylvania. With less snow. I would think the whole peninsula thing would dump a pretty good amount of the white stuff (similar to Japan)? Maybe this is near the China border and inland?
That hotel is only 120 rooms? Looks gaudy and comically oversized.
That pool could be the creepiest thing I have ever seen. It also looks straight out of 1960. I also notice no Jacuzzi, but you can make a Jacuzzi out of the kiddie pool? Erm....
Double chair. That's how you know they are building a world class resort. I can imagine how much fun the projected 5000 people are going to have waiting in line for the Chinese FGD.
This line could be the most ominous helmet warning ever. Leaving a word like "trouble" undefined in a place like North Korea makes you wonder how close you are to the camps.
Finally, I love the last picture showing the single car (Daewoo?) with a traffic guard/cop standing at attention.
