IamA guy who went to North Korea this August. I was told that there would be interest in knowing about my experience. Also I have traveled to 20-30 countries and might be able to help you with travel tips. AMA!
Like I said I went to North Korea, I personally found that a lot of things like the VICE pieces on the country did not match my experiences. Other adventures of note include climbing mount kilimanjaro, Japan/mount fuji, many tours across the US, Bolivia, Peru, a massive trip across Europe and currently I am getting ready to go to Iran and hike across Iceland so I could provide info on how I am getting ready for that if there is interest.
My Proof: Here is a picture of the mass games in Pyongyang, a painting a smuggled out, and my proof If the mods need a picture of my face both in and out of North Korea I can message that to them but otherwise I would like to retain my anonymity.
So without further ado, what are some things you guys would like to know?
Edit: Here is a trick you guys can know if you go to North Korea. Everyone talks about the "5th floor" like it is something special hidden and secret. Well it is not the only "secret floor" on the hotel. There are several throughout the Yanggakdo hotel in Pyongyang. I was not able to figure out all of the codes (I was a little scared after being accused of being a spy and running into a soldier) but if you are in the hotel push both of the elevator buttons and wait. The first elevator is a decoy, don't take it. Then another elevator will open up and there are all the missing floors (at least when I was there, they change it). If you press the button nothing happens so there is a key combination for that as well but I did not have time to crack it, but if you go to North Korea you might be able to use that to get in places that are off limits (do with that knowledge what you will)
Edit 2: Ok It has been 3 hours plus I need to study a little bit. If you have asked questions or want to ask new ones I will get to them and answer you. OP will deliver!
Edit 3: I found better proof my boarding pass from Pyongyang to Beijing on Air Koryo and my DPRK visa I had printed off Here you go!
