The world is full of interesting and fascinating places, but few are quite as mysterious as North Korea. It is a very secretive place that very few outsiders have ever been able to get into. When people go for tours, they are normally only allowed to visit Pyongyang, which is basically a city which North Korea plays up to look like how they want foreigners to see their country. Sadly, most of the country is a disaster. But thankfully, a photographer spent 16 days touring all across the country and was able to smuggle out some photos, which is highly illegal.

Here are 12 of his best photos — if they knew he’d gotten number 9, they would have never let him leave!

 

#12 Cheap Labor

North Korea is famous for mistreating its citizens, especially when it comes to worker abuses. There is a ton of cheap (and even free) labor in North Korea, which means places can afford a ton of workers for something only a few could do, while barely paying them anything at all.

 

#11 The Museum of United States War Atrocities

In North Korea, most people are taught from a very young age to hate the USA and the western world with a passion. In fact, there is a museum there all about depicting the USA committing horrific acts such as torture, in an effort to create hatred for the country in the North Korean citizens.
