• N. Korea town opens to Western tourists


    BEIJING: North Korea’s authorities have opened the border town of Sinuiju to Western tourists, Chinese-based travel agencies said, despite international tensions over Pyongyang’s nuclear test in February. The move opens up the possibility of foreign tourists being able to make day tours to the secretive state, a considerably cheaper option than the more expensive multiday trips currently on offer. The country is largely sealed off from outsiders, with Western travelers allowed in only on strictly controlled tours.
