Kaesong Army Camp is near to the Kaesong city main entrance from Pyongyang direction.
It Is located side of the Pyongyang-Kaesong highway. So our driver slow down the speed for us to have a clear look of the army camp.
May, the season for Wild Sakura in North Korea.
Not just only focus on people, during the journey, sometimes every single scenery pass by can be very breathtaking.
Just like this hill area outside the north of Kaesong city, the contras of Sakura Pink and the lawn green was really a beautiful scene.
You can ask your drive to stop or a break to enjoy the nature fresh air.
The are definitely not the baggers, but they will ask food from you.
Like ‘give me something to eat…’, or ‘give me some sweets…’, some even may ask ‘give me some banana…’,
I don’t know do there have any money changes in the town, however I still prefer to give to the child some money like Chinese RMB.
This couple believes moving to the market.
Based on my basic Korean language ability; the wife said the ‘ The unprocessed rice 5 Kati’s has been booked 2 weeks ago’,
The husband replied ‘give them more money, otherwise, they won’t sell it to you….’
From the conversation, you can learn that due to the heavy rain this year, the rice, vegetables and other foods are extremely lacking in North Korea.
Local school is where the local receive the education.
You can hear some students are singing, some are reading the book out loud.

If you want to go nearer to the locals, make sure that you have some sweets on hands, they will be happy to receive from you.
Area for photography allows in North Korea is very limited.
Most of the time consult your tour guide and they will announce area “YES” or “DON’T” for using your cameras.
Mean while, do not forget to take some funny picture like a jump, or with funny face.
Going off the beaten path in North Korea will get you shot at. And that's if you don't step on a landmine first...
Stay close to your handlers, and do what they say.
Getting shot at, or losing a leg, is not a good way to remember your vacation.
Seoul is only 60 km south of Kaesong, but for most North Koreans it may as well as be on the Moon. And getting to Pyongyang, 150 km to the north, is not much easier either. There may be a fast four-lane highway – often completely free of traffic - but frequent military checkpoints slow down travel, and if you don't have the right permit, you won't get through. But Kaesong drivers, used to the traffic in their home town, would probably never cope in any case with Pyongyang's congested streets!
