|| North Korea Has a Futuristic New Airport It Thinks Will Lure Tourists ||
That is an architect's rendering I think
its really awesome airport, its architecture is beautiful.
Were it not for the lack of electricity and the fact that nobody wants to actually vacation there, I can totally see this happening.
Here is the actual airport they ended up building:
The demand to visit "the secret and unavailable" country could be bigger than we might think. Just a hunch.
State of the Art?
Indeed, seeing the rendering, it looks beautiful, that's undeniable.
Yes, it's the rendering of their proposed new airport, overall, it's a beautiful design, will it ever really be built? That's another question, especially it's in North Korea.
Same as with Cuba, which seems an incredible influx of tourists from Europe and other countries.
But you know it takes more than a nice airport to lure in the tourist dollars. If anything, Ciudad Real / Don Quijote is a perfect example of what not to do... you can hope, plan and spend all you want, but there's still a good chance that it will just turn into a ghost town.
But, why not? There are perks not available elsewhere, such as being eligible to win a free extended vacation in a nearby camp for rehabilitation of capitalist pigs or in an eco-resort for foreign spies. Every tourist is automatically entered upon arrival, like this lucky guy: http://reut.rs/17XYvVU.
Of course it is. Where would they find so many cars for an actual photograph?
That rendering is completely unbelievable. When has anyone seen 13 cars in one picture of North Korea.
Isn't all advertising unbelievable?
That & the little fact that tourists will also want food, which isn't readily available in NK!
13 cars & 15 planes - I call that overly optimistic!
16 planes; 4 on runway/taxiway and 12 at the terminals. (But we can photoshop one out if you prefer!)
From the Kim Il Sung International Airport food court:
Is Dennis Rodman the architect?
Photoshop in some from SK & I'll be impressed!
And once again we find North Korea only talks big!
Nothing says state-of-the-art like an artist's rendering showing a B737-200 at a "futuristic" airport:
I'm sure the Pyongyang-Havana
Pyongyang-Caracas routes will be quite popular.
And shuttle service to the awesome Ryugyong Hotel.
Dude, I thought the EXACT same thing!
