Mangyongdae

Overview

Introduction

This suburb of Pyongyang is usually seen as a half-day trip from the capital. It's the birthplace of Kim Il Sung, and you can visit the refurbished thatched cottage where he was born (be prepared for a torrent of praise for the Great Leader and his humble beginnings). There are also a 700-acre/280-hectare botanical garden and lovely views. Tourists might also be taken through a pair of nearby amusement parks, complete with a double-loop roller coaster, two-story carousel and vintage video arcade. 10 mi/16 km west of Pyongyang.
