We’re happy to be offering weekly North Korea tours directly from Shanghai via Air Koryo charter flight! Now you don’t need to go to Beijing to get to North Korea. Take off directly from China’s financial capital, Shanghai.

All year round, there will be weekly direct flights from Shanghai’s Pudong International Airport to Pyongyang’s Sunan International Airport:

Every Friday and Monday: Shanghai - Pyongyang JS552 Depart 12:30am / Arrive 4:00am local time    
                                             
Every Sunday and Thursday: Pyongyang - Shanghai JS551 Depart 8:30pm local time / Arrive 10:10pm

What to expect on our Shanghai - Pyongyang tours:

    - Our DPRK Weekender Shanghai Departure tour will depart every Thursday and return Sunday this summer. You’ll explore North Korea’s capital city of Pyongyang, and then take a day to travel to the old and historic city of Kaesong, the former capital of the Koryo Dynasty. Here, we’ll visit the DMZ from the North, where you’ll experience the division of Korea first hand (a truly eye-opening and educational experience). Finish off the tour by visiting the port city of Nampho.
