Following on from my recent trip to North Korea, I’ve been buzzing ever since! I’m delighted to announce that my readers, that’s you guys can get an exclusive 5% off any North Korea tour if booked through Young Pioneer Tours and quoting the code “Don’t Stop Living”!! (the best tour agency to run trips to North Korea by the way). If you follow my travel blog since it’s inception in 2007, you’ll know I’ve now visited almost 80 countries and North Korea is without doubt in my top 5 of those countries! It’s just an amazing off the wall place to head out to!
This is such a great time to visit North Korea too, and I have a load more stories to write about during my amazing time there. While in the country, you will be given a full guided tour by the North Korean guides, accompanied by a representative from Young Pioneer Tours. My guide was Rowan – a top lad who knows the ins and outs of this incredible country! Rowan even found time away from his busy working schedule to have some drinks and beers with us. As we took the train out of Pyongyang and headed back to China we opened the beers and toasted to a top trip!
To take advantage of my exclusive cheap North Korea tours offer (5% off all tours) , here’s all you need to do:
1. Visit Young Pioneer Tours Website
2. Pick the tour you want to go on (they cover more places than North Korea by the way – Chernobyl in Ukraine is also on the list 😉 )
3. E-mail them/phone them and arrange the booking
4. While booking tell them that you found out about the tour from Jonny Blair’s Travel Blog “Don’t Stop Living” and quote the code “Don’t Stop Living”. You’ll get a whopping 5% off. That’s $50 US Dollars off a $1000 US Dollars tour – not bad at all!
5. Go to North Korea and have the time of your life!!

No way! North Korea? How much of the country are you able to see nowadays through tours?
Quite a bit Trevor! It’s a great country and I recommend visiting. I havent had time to write about all my adventures there yet, but we toured all over Pyongyang, had a day in Kaesong and the DMZ and we alsogot the train from Pyongyang to Dandong in China. Get it booked!! Jonny
Going to North Korea is on my bucket list. However there have been a
number of disturbing news recently. Hope it continues to be an
adventurous but safe place to visit in the future.
Thanks for the comment Torsten – I found North Korea to be easily one of the top 5 safest places I have ever been. Petty crime and theft is almost non-existent! As are muggings and lootings. Even bombs and shootings are almost unheard of, especially against foreigners. It’s really safe, and you’ll be with a guide most of the time anyway – hope you head out there to see it. Safe travels. Jonny
North Korea, sounds like an exciting journey! I’ve always wanted to do it, but because apparently one has to go with a tour company, it seems rather expensive! What was the overall cost for your trip to NK including bookings with the tour group, flights etc?
Hi Arden, the cheapest you can do it on is about $500-600 for a 3-4 day trip. I did a 5-6 day trip over National Day and it cost around $900-1100. Check the YPT website for further details. It’s really worth doing! A great trip. Safe travels. Jonny
is this 5% off still valid?
Hi Natalie – yes but please remember to quote my website Don’t Stop Living when booking through Young Pioneer Tours. Gareth and Rowan at YPT will be able to sort out the discount and the trip for you. Safe travels, Jonny
