Change things up with a short trip to Chongsan-ri Cooperative Farm in Nampo (about 1h 35 min away). There's still lots to do: make a trip to Kim Il-sung Square, steep yourself in history at Former Residence of Mangyongdae, appreciate the history behind Tower of the Juche Idea, and brush up on your military savvy at Victorious Fatherland Liberation War Museum.

A mountainous county, Hyangsan has long been a popular tourist destination with North Koreans, and the refurbishment of its striking, pyramid-shaped hotel in 2010 also gave a boost to international tourism.
