Hong Kong’s football team has drawn North Korea in the Asian Cup and the two sides will meet in Pyongyang.
We previously mentioned Koryo Tours as a reputable tour operator in our blog post on visiting North Korea. Koryo is arranging a special five-day package trip to North Korea for the Hong Kong match. As well as the match, other sporting elements on itinerary include a documentary screening about the North Korean 1966 World Cup team, visiting North Korea’s top football academy, a morning run along Pyongyang’s Sports Street, a visit to a sports equipment factory and a tour of the May Day Stadium as well as other standard sights from Koryo’s North Korean tours. The cost per person is 1,499 euros ($14,011). The trip starts and ends in Beijing so local fans will need to make their way there first.
More details about this trip are available on the Koryo Tours website.
