No money worries for Chinese tourists in DPRK

CURRENCY reforms in the Democratic People's Republic of Korea will not affect existing tours for Chinese tourists, though the tour will see an annual suspension from Thursday, according to travel agents.

The suspension is due to the annual closure of DPRK customs offices from mid-December to next January, today's Beijing Morning Post reported, citing tour agencies in Dandong, a northeast Chinese city on the border between China and the DPRK.

The border closure has nothing to do with the new currency notes the DPRK government unveiled last week.

Chinese tourists settle their DPRK bills in yuan rather than in the local currency, tour agencies explained.
