Why do Chinese tourists like to visit North Korea?
I don't have the stats on where Chinese tourists go for comparison, but I definitely believe that Chinese tourists are the vast majority of tourists to North Korea.
Reasons for this? I'm guessing, because its close to China, because China is North Korea's only major ally, because its cheap? Also a lot of other countries have significant restrictions on traveling to North Korea. I can't imagine it would be much fun to visit there because you cannot really travel around the country without North Korea supervision. Then again... when was the last time Chinese tourists traveled around any overseas country without a tour guide? I also can't imagine that North Korea makeup or fashion styles would be more popular in China than South Korean makeup or fashion styles, so I don't know what exactly Chinese tourists buy in North Korea, lol.
