TL;DR – Apparently, you can get a piece of North Korea right here in Singapore.
North Korea – officially, Democratic People’s Republic of Korea – is probably the most elusive country in the world today.
But did you know, the country actually has a embassy right here in Singapore?
(Somemore at what would probably be the most unlikely of places – Golden Mile Complex aka Singapore’s “Little Thailand”.)
We are not sure if the embassy is still around but a quick phone call to the above number this morning proved that the line is in existence and a very-official-sounding-Korean-man answered our call.
According to reddit.com, it also appears that:
1) Singaporeans enjoy 30-day visa-free travel to the DPRK.
2) North Korea elites also travel to Singapore for medical tourism.
We wonder if the late supreme leader Kim Jong-il enjoyed pad thai.
