Day 3: Pyongyang City Tour
AM: Start the morning off at the Mansudae Grand Monument. This important site is famous for its large, bronze statutes of Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il. Visitors are sometimes asked to follow local custom by bowing and laying flowers at the feet of the statues. Take a tour of the Grand People's Study House, a national library used to house Korean language and foreign books, and to hold recreational classes on a variety of subjects. Then take a walk in the Kim Il Sung Square, the 3rd largest public square in the world and home to many of the North Korean military parades broadcasted internationally during large holiday events.

For those who wish to take the lift up 150-meters to the top, you'll have an opportunity to take in a panorama view of the entire Pyongyang city. Later that afternoon, check out local artists at the Mansudae Art Studio, where you can purchase local artwork, paintings, embroideries, and ceramics (for serious art buyers, note that only foreign currency cash is accepted and artwork can run upwards in the 1,000s).
