ABSTRACT
The sun is low and the sand is warm, bathed gold in the afternoon light. Welcome to Chujin Beach, North Korea. Since its founding in 1948 by the late 'Great Leader' Kim Il Sung, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea has spurned all efforts to engage the world. And yet, precisely because of its wanton disregard for development, North Korea remains one of the most unspoiled countries in Asia. North Korea scores particularly well with those looking for the eccentric, whether it is bird watching along the DMZ or visiting the world's tallest hotel -- still unfinished at 105 floors.
