PYONYANG, August 28 (Itar-Tass) - The government of North Korea will take practical steps for attracting foreign tourists to North Korea; in particular, the government is planning reconstruction of large hotels in Pyongyang and bringing these hotels to the best world service standards, Director of the North Korean International Tourism Agency Cho Seong-kyu told journalists on Wednesday.
Both foreign tourists and tourists from North Korea will be offered an opportunity to travel to the city of Wonsan on the North Korean eastern coast and to highland areas of Pektusan and Chilbo by air.
