Ever-Growing Beauty of the DPRK

September 27 is World Tourism Day.

World Tourism Organization (WTO) adopted a resolution to designate September 27 as World Tourism Day at the 3 rd UNWTO General Assembly held in Spain in 1979.

Accordingly, every year on this day, the UNWTO organizes various activities and events under different themes.

The higher the people’s cultural level and living standards grow, the more desirous they become to visit more and experience more.

Nowadays, many countries around the world attach importance to tourism, regarding it as an important lever that helps promote international travel and exchanges, mutual cooperation and understanding, and peace.

After joining the WTO on September 22, 1987, the DPRK has paid deep attention to tourism with a view to promote friendship, cooperation and exchanges with peoples of various countries and to provide people with affluent and civilized cultural life.

President Kim Il Sung said that the DPRK, a land of golden tapestry with beautiful mountains and crystal clear water, has extremely favorable conditions for tourism and should therefore make good preparations to this end.

He saw to it that various places within the country were turned into tourist attractions including Pyongyang City; Hyangsan County; Hyesan City and Taehongdan County of Ryanggang Province; Wonsan City and Mt. Kumgang of Kangwon Province; and Kaesong City.

Chairman Kim Jong Il said that the DPRK is full of scenic sites everywhere, and gave instructions on turning Mt. Kumgang, Mt. Myohyang, Songdowon and Myongsasipri(4-kilometres of beautiful sand) into world-class tourist and recreational spots.

Respected Comrade Kim Jong Un pays deep attention to tourism, saying that revitalizing tourism is essential to enable our people to enjoy a more civilized life and to demonstrate to the whole world the ever-changing appearance of our state.

He provided tireless leadership and meticulous care, giving birth to the first-class Masikryong Ski Resort which was built in a little more than a year on the steep peaks of Masikryong meaning literally that even a horse stops for a rest while climbing up the hill, as well as Mirim Riding Club which was built in Mirim area into a superb modern equestrian center for the people.

This is not all.

A few years ago, Yangdok Hot Spa Resort was wonderfully built in the hot spring area of Yangdok County, South Phyongan Province. It is an all-round balneotherapeutic center and comprehensive sports and recreational facility contributing to the health promotion and cultural life of the people.

They are now leading our people to a higher level of civilization.

A marine park is soon to open in Wonsan-Kalma coastal tourist area, which will give the world people a surprise and envy.

And a new comprehensive international tourist and cultural zone will make its appearance in the beautiful Mt. Kumgang where our people and foreigners can enjoy to their hearts’ content.

Korea has long been called a silk-embroidered land of three thousand-ri and her scenic spots were there since ancient times.

But never before have they been visited like today as places of cultural activities and holiday resorts, genuinely serving the people and adding vitality and rich emotion into their life.

Our fatherland will become more beautiful day by day and lead our people to a higher level of civilization as we hold in high esteem peerlessly great men through generations.
