Opinion | Tourism to North Korea isn’t about engagement. It’s torture porn.
It is amazing that this has to be stated, but don't go to North Korea as a tourist. "Most of all, the real question on tourism to North Korea is an ethical one. Tourism is for individual enjoyment and generally a hobby for the privileged citizens of first-world nations. So what is there to enjoy in a gulag nation where 25 million citizens are held captive? Casually touring North Korea is akin to hiking at Auschwitz under the Nazis."
