This is likely to be your principal expense while in North Korea. You may only stay at "designated tourist hotels", for which you will need to pay in hard currency. There may be discounts if you ask for lower class accommodation, if you are travelling as part of a group, or if it is low season November â March. Costs for your tour, which will include accommodation, all sightseeing activities and meals, will range from US$70 to US$200 a day, depending on these factors.
Usually you pay for all your meals, hotel and BeijingâPyeongyang journey to your tour operator before you leave. One week in high season at a four-star hotel will then cost something between â¬1300 and â¬1600, depending on your tour operator, but might get as low as â¬800 for one week.
