Nothing to really see up close but the party symbol is impressive when viewed from a distance, weather permitting. We did get a very brief 'tour' from a worker.

The way the monument was built provides lots of great angles for interesting photo opportunities. It's maybe not the most interesting place you'll visit, but it's still a nice stop.

Nobody does giant monuments quite like the DPRK. The monument itself is impressive with the giant sickle, hammer and brush of the DPRK Workers Party visible from distance. When you step into the middle of the monument you realise the attention to detail with the...More
