Great ACL1978 2012-09-15 8:14

Looks a bit post-apocalyptic, or something from a dystopian future - which I guess sums up North Korea. I'd like more information, though, about the POV - I assume this isn't from a plane, but I'm wondering what the vantage point is.

Default To ACL1978: PyongYang pic

Hi Andrew

The view is from the 39th storey of the Yanggakdo Hotel. The hotel is on a small island in the middle of the Taedong River, right in central PyongYang.
It's the only place that regular tourists will stay in PyongYang. It's kind of a 46 storey Alcatraz - no escaping the island.
