Nampo

Southwest of Pyongyang lies the industrial powerhouse of Nampo, the center of North Korea's shipbuilding industry. Once a sleepy fishing village, Nampo was opened for foreign trade in 1897, and has never looked back. Because of the crucial role Nampo played in receiving foreign trade and, recently, aid, it was designated a special city - almost on par with the capital of Pyongyang itself.

EXPERIENCES

Chonsamri Cooperative Farm

Along the way from Pyongyang to Nampo, stop at the Chonsamri Cooperative Farm, a community of 2,500 people living and working together, with their own shops, schools, theaters and services. Chat with the members of the farm, and hear about their life and work amid the cooperative system, which includes essentially free housing, education and healthcare.

Nampo Orphanage

Take a tour of the Nampo Orphanage, a colorful, modern facility where you can spend hours playing with the children and talking with their caretakers about their lives and work with the orphans. The children appear very clean and happy, and are well cared for by their loving, affectionate teachers.

Sea Vessel Repair Shop

An active facility for the repair and maintenance of North Korean fishing boats and commercial ships, the Sea Vessel Repair Shop is an interesting glimpse at North Korea’s shipping industry. Indeed, the Repair Shop is the only North Korean industrial structure that foreigners are allowed to visit.

West Sea Barrage

Visit the West Sea Barrage, a nearly 5-mile (8 kilometer) long system of dams and an engineering feat of which the country is extremely proud. Completed in 1986, the multi-purpose barrage was built to control flooding and generate power, and allows 50,000-ton ships to pass through its three lock chambers and up the increased water level of the Taedong River.
