Kaesong ©
Relatively relaxed and atmosphertic, the centuries-old city of Kaesong lies near the Demilitarized Zone and the border with South Korea, and has served as an industrial center since being traded to the North in the Korean War.
On the 13th (Mon), don't miss a visit to Concrete Wall and then steep yourself in history at Demilitarized Zone.

To see ratings, photos, where to stay, and tourist information, you can read our Kaesong trip planner.

Mexico City, Mexico to Kaesong is an approximately 31- hour combination of flight and car. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 15 hours traveling from Mexico City to Kaesong. Expect little chillier temperatures when traveling from Mexico City in April; daily highs in Kaesong reach 20°C and lows reach 7°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 13th (Mon) so you can go by car to Pyongyang.
