A new lovely view has unfolded in the Pothong riverside of the capital city of Pyongyang where modern riverside terraced houses were built.

An excursion boat moves along the Pothong River leisurely.

Many people have had a good time aboard the boat since it began service last April.

The boat plies the route from Mo Islet to Kumran Islet in front of Kyongru-dong where there is the riverside terraced houses district, through the section before the Chongnyu Restaurant which is a household name in Pyongyang.

According to waitress Ri Hyang Mi, people like to enjoy the view of the Pothong riverside in the gentle river breeze in this sultry summertime and especially more sightseers come to board the ship in the evening to have a nocturnal view.

Actually, more and more people come to take in the riverside scenery aboard the ship.

Ro Haeng Rim living in Ansan-dong No. 2, Phyongchon District, described her impression as to her boat excursion on the evening of the anniversary of the victory in the Fatherland Liberation War:

"All my family members celebrated V-Day together. It was stunning to see the fireworks display on the boat at night. The scenery of the Pothong riverside was beautiful, the modern buildings were brightly lit and the fireworks nicely decorated the night sky. It was really an unforgettably lovely night adding to the joy of victory in the war which had been achieved so dearly.”

Sightseers are absorbed in shooting breathtaking sights seen from the middle of the river and a variety of scenes in their emotional life.

Rim Ung Song, native riverside dweller living in Ryugyong–dong No. 1 in Pothonggang District, said: “In my childhood I frolicked by the Pothong River as I dipped my feet in its water. And now I enjoy the scenery of the riverside with wonderful structures, which fills me with deep emotion. I love Pyongyang, our capital that gets more beautiful along with the Pothong River with each passing day.”
