In August 2012, a group of eighteen, mainly consisting of Cambridge students, went to the DPRK (North Korea) in a trip specially arranged by the travel company Koryo Tours.  The trip lasted for a week, and they visited sites of special importance in the capital Pyongyang, as well as the towns of Nampo and Kaesong. The itinerary included monuments, museums, countryside, frisbee tournaments, a DJ night, and cultural performances such as the Mass Games.  Although staying in the capital, Pyongyang, on one day the group went to the border between North and South Korea in the DMZ.  They had the opportunity to step briefly into South Korea within a neutral United Nations hut placed right on the border.
