    There are some flaws in having a new guide in each city because the quality of them is not consistent. One or two are well below par. However, the itinerary co…

Questions & Answers

Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions.

  • Can I take a camera to North Korea?

    Cameras with lenses of no more than 150mm are allowed so long as they are declared at customs in Pyongyang. The rules do change often though, so you bring any such equipment at own risk.

  • Is there anything I shouldn't bring to North Korea?

    Do not take religious texts or books about North Korea- you can take laptops, Ipads and phones. Large camera or video equipment may be viewed as an attempt to film or document the country, please refrain from bringing such equipment.

  • Can I travel independently in North Korea?

    No, you need to be with a tour group- even if you are not normally someone who would book onto a group tour- it really is the only way to see North Korea!

  • I have visited South Korea before - is that an issue if I want to go to North Korea?

    This is not a problem.

  • Is it safe to travel to North Korea?

    Despite the country’s reputation- the crime rate is very low. The political situation is closely monitored and we would not take a tour if the political climate was dangerous.

  • Do I need any special vaccinations for Japan?

    No vaccinations are required to enter Japan. Tap water is safe to drink anywhere in Japan.

  • How do I get my Japanese Visa?

    Nice and easy- these are available upon arrival for over 60 countries including the UK, US, Canada Australia and EU countries

  • How do I get money in China?

    You will be able to withdraw money at an ATM in each city, and your Adventure Leader will tell you when the next stop on the Trip where you will be able to withdraw more cash is. We advise that you notify your bank that you will be travelling before you depart. As a note, many banks and cards do charge a foreign transaction fee when withdrawing money while abroad, so it will probably be cheaper to exchange Chinese Yuan (RMB) before you start your trip.

  • Suitcase or backpack?

    Suitcase is OK, but a backpack/hold-all is much more convenient.

  • What should I pack for my trip?

    We strongly recommend packing very light for The Dragon Trip. China has everything under the sun- they are after all the world’s factory- so don’t fret too much if you left something behind, almost anything you’d conceivably need is available throughout China.You really need very little as you can wash clothes regularly in the hostels. Bear in mind also that you can leave a bag in Hong Kong for the duration of your trip for HK$300.
