Trip Itinerary


So, I’ve previously mentioned I’m going to North Korea on this upcoming trip and while that is obviously the crown jewel of this trip, there are a few other places I’m visiting as well.

In total, the trip will be just over 3 weeks and here’s where I’ll be…

After an 11 hour flight from Vancouver, I arrive in Beijing where I’ll spend 5 days.  This gives me plenty of time to explore the city, eat some amazing food and, of course, visit the Great Wall of China.

From there, it’s a 24 hour train ride to Pyongyang – my destination city in North Korea.

After a 4 day tour of North Korea and another 24 hour train ride back to Beijing where I’ll immediately head south to Shanghai.

To get to Shanghai, I’ll be hopping onto the world’s fastest passenger train (350 km/hr) which will travel the 1320 km south in just under 5 hours.

I’ll be in Shanghai for 3 days and then fly to Seoul for 3 days which will also be the last three days of the Olympics.

The final stop is a quick day and a half in Hong Kong before heading back home again.
