This tour -- travelling in and out by train, from and to the Chinese border city of Dandong -- is ideal for those on a budget who are looking for a brief highlights tour of Pyongyang, as well as the Pyongyang Marathon.
Please note the DPRK does not allow for American citizens to enter or exit the country by train. As such, we are sadly unable to take American citizens on this particular tour due to its method of travel.
If you are an American citizen interested in taking part in the Pyongyang Marathon there are other marathon tours available.
The big event! The Pyongyang Marathon!
The Pyongyang Marathon — this is your chance to run the streets of Pyongyang in the DPRK’s largest annual sports event!Join the Full Marathon, Half Marathon or 10km race — all of which follow a return course that starts and ends in Kim Il Sung Stadium in front of a 50-000-strong capacity crowd of local Koreans.
The full route, which has been certified by the IAAF, leads right through the city centre, past a number of iconic landmarks, and then out into Pyongyang's less urban districts. The route for 2017 is a first for this race, and takes in more parts of the city than ever before. Don’t miss this incredible opportunity to see more of the capital and interact with people along the course. Prizes are available for the winners of each race.
The tour finishes in Dandong. You can go on to explore this fascinating border city, the surrounding areas, or make your way to Beijing or elsewhere after an amazing trip to the DPRK.
All hotel rooms on our all-inclusive group tours feature twin beds, and will be shared. If you'd like a room to yourself then you can upgrade for an extra 40 EUR per night. This rises to 50 EUR per night if you're on one of our marathon tours due to the shortage of rooms over this period.See more
