Tourist in North Korea

Girls playing on the beach, hair salons and bored commuters: Tourist who took camera inside North Korea expecting to find 'really, really sad people' is shocked to discover a happy country

  • Singaporean photographer Aram Pan visited North Korea last year
  • Gained permission for his 360 photography project after sending emails and faxes to North Korean contacts
  • A BBC Panorama documentary led him to believe he would see lots of starving people
  • Discovered healthy looking men and women shopping, playing volleyball and clocking off work at 6pm
  • Believes that 'North Korea needs more friendly interaction with the outside world, even if it is just tourists'
