Visiting North Korea isn't at the top of too many bucket lists -- rightfully so, given the likelihood of being arrested for espionage. But for those with inquiring minds, the first travel app devoted to the Hermit Kingdom sheds light on that most mysterious of countries, safely from a mobile phone.
Developed by UK-based tech startup Uniquely.Travel and software developers Magora Systems, North Korea Travel App (NKT) bills itself as "The most comprehensive guide to North Korea that has ever been developed". Not exactly tough competition, seeing how it's also the only one.
Regardless, the app is thorough, as it breaks down all the locations foreigners can visit and offers insight into more than 350 of the nation's attractions, along with hotels, bars, restaurants, museums, and other notable venues. All points of interest are geotagged, too, allowing for custom tours, and a price function helps find the cheapest deal.
But let's not get too worked up; as ABC News points out, the tourist sites include a number of factories, a "broken bridge", and a "concrete wall" from which to view foreign military outposts.
