Ryugyong Hotel, the tallest hotel in North Korea

Certainly a lot of questions for potential travelers before making their choice, how about North Korea? Sure, why not. North Korea is a beautiful tourist region and become one of the world's travelers.

Countries in East Asia, which includes the northern portion of the Korean Peninsula, as saying the tourists who've been there, the country resembled "a sea in a heavy gale" because of the many successive mountain ranges that alternate in coastal strip.

Exotic country in the northern hemisphere, more dynamic place to visit. Their government had planned to build the hotel building since 1987, Ryugyong Hotel (or sometimes called Ryu-Gyong Hotel or Yu-Kyung Hotel) - a 105-story pyramid-shaped skyscraper. There is something special with this hotel building, the towering height reaches 330 meters into the sky.

In cooperation with an international hotel chain Kempinski Hotels & Resorts, which acts as the operator of this hotel with 105 floors, it becomes the tallest building in the country, even being one of the tallest buildings in the world.

As quoted from CNNGo news, the cost of construction of this hotel has spent 750 million U.S. dollars, or about two percent of the GDP of North Korea.

Kempinski parties would need to negotiate further their role in managing a hotel with such a tall building, in accordance with their long experience. Kempinski Hotels & Resorts run 74 five-star hotels in 32 countries worldwide.

Travelers soon enjoy this, if they then are in this exotic country - in the north at the summer of 2013.
