Factors In Recommendations
Chinese tourists flock to North Korea amid détente By Wooyoung Lee | June 27, 2018 at 5:49 AM SEOUL, June 27 (UPI) -- An increasing number of Chinese tourists are visiting North Korea as diplomatic relations improve between North Korea and Beijing. Hundreds of Chinese travelers are visiting major tourist sites in the North, including the capital city of Pyongyang, according to a travel agency based in the Chinese border town of Dangdong, Chosun Ilbo reported Wednesday. Photos of Chinese group tourists in Pyongyang are seen on the Chinese social media service Baidu. Chinese travel agencies selling North Korea travel packages are receiving increasing inquiries, industry insiders said in the report. Air China resumed flights between Beijing and Pyongyang this month as military tensions in the region reduced following the summit between North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and U.S. President Donald Trump on June 12. The Chinese national carrier suspended its flights between the two capital cities when sanctions against North Korea heightened with the North's sixth nuclear test in September of last year. Qunar, one of the biggest travel agencies in China, released travel products that include visits to major North Korean tourist attractions, including Pyongyang and Mount Myohyang, last week, according to Hankook Ilbo . The Chinese government has blocked its people to travel to Pyongyang since November when military tensions intensified following North Korea's missile and nuclear tests. It only allowed people in the northeastern provinces bordering North Korea, home for ethnic Korean Chinese residents, travel to the North starting the end of last year.

Enjoy Your Next Trip By Using These Tips
Anyone will enjoy getting to see the world from a different angle. Traveling can offer new educational opportunities and adventure. With so many different places to explore around the world, everyone can find a unique destination for their unique dreams. You can make the most of your traveling by using these tips.
Don't exchange your cash in another country, use an ATM instead. Banks will get better rates for exchanging currencies than you would be able to get. This can end up saving you a good bit of money in the long run.
Once you know where you're traveling, you can take some time to learn about where you plan to go. Get yourself a good map and take the time to review key spots. By studying a map now, navigating your way around will be much easier later.
If you are required to have certain vaccinations in the country you are traveling to, make sure you have the certificate verifying you have been vaccinated. This is important information needed to enter and leave many countries, but keep in mind that it can also be required to travel to different cities within the country. If you don't have this certificate, authorities may quarantine you and prevent you from traveling.
Even when on long flights, never assume the airline will provide everything you need. If you really need headphones, a blanket and a pillow to be comfortable while flying, you should bring your own on board with you. You should also pack snacks to ensure that you won't go hungry if you do not like what the airline offers.
We all love our pets and if you simply refuse to board them at a kennel, why not choose a way to travel with them? Vacations that are pet-friendly are becoming more commonplace, with a lot of hotels offering promotions for travelers with pets. Many will provide services like daycare, spas, and even cruises that welcome pets. Ask about your pets first before you make the booking.
If you're going on a long trip with kids, take along a cookie sheet or two. These sheets will be for the kids to play cards on or color in coloring books. For young kids, magnetic numbers and letters can be fun and educational to bring with.
When traveling abroad, prepare for emergencies ahead of time, such as losing your U.S. passport. The U.S. Department of State has a website which provides all of the information that you need for the country you're visiting. Bring this info with you as you travel. You can have a replacement passport ready within a couple of days.
Cash your traveler's checks before going shopping or eating. Traveler's checks may be something that you will want to avoid. You could find yourself losing money by using them, so be smart and exchange for the local currency.
When you begin planning your travel, check with major airlines to see if they offer e-newsletters. Their online newsletters often include last-minute discounts, special offers and other promotions not offered to any other consumers. It's true, this means one more email to fill your inbox, but the amount of money you can save could by well worth it.
While some car rental companies ask that drivers be at least 18, others require that their drivers be 25 years old. Drivers younger than that usually pay higher rates and have to give a credit card number as security. Some cities prohibit senior citizens from renting cars. When you make your reservations, make sure you ask if they have any age restrictions.
You now have the tools you need to plan a great vacation. You might even take a trip to another country. This advice will make your trip less stressful and full of fun. So get out there and start exploring! ทัวร์เกาหลีราคาถูก 2560
