North Korea is a staggering place. There’s no other way to describe it. It’s an eerie, perverse, brutal country — this we know well — but it’s also tender, funny and entertaining in a way I have never encountered. It’s the only country where you will visit the corpse of a dictator who still reigns, see a 100,000-person acrobatic spectacle, enjoy a hilarious round of dick jokes over afternoon spelunking, take walks with starving child soldiers, then finish up the day at a shooting range that serves alcohol — and all of this on a peninsula that boasts an enviable gene pool and one of the craziest chapters in history.
If that sounds absurd, it was. And I haven’t even told you about the citizen actors or stand-up comedy yet. The seven days we spent there were insane — and insanely interesting. We were on a straight-up high for a good two months after returning to the States. I think I still am.
Which is why North Korea is the perfect place for a bachelor party.
The DPRK is a dude’s playground (and an equally fascinating destination for women), and the country offers something unique to a group looking for a truly special way to celebrate. You’re guaranteed to return home amped, and with some of the most killer stories on the planet.
So Jordan, of lifestyle and talk-show fame, took the liberty of creating an itinerary for a legendary man-cation that puts anything Vegas has to offer to shame. You heard it hear first: Pyongyang is the real Sin City, in all senses of the term. We hope you enjoy his recommendations.
