in Program
Ambitious plans for an enormous new beach resort on North Korea’s southeast coast are nearing completion, according to satellite images obtained by the US-based monitoring group 38 North.
The Wonsan-Kalma tourist zone, slated to open October 2019, will be a huge complex with hotels, a marina, a sports complex, water slides and more.
North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un highlighted the project in his New Year address and is reported to have visited the site at least three times in the past year, according to state media.
Development has been proceeding at a rapid pace, with a cinema and water slide already built. What was a handful of buildings just two years ago is now a huge beachfront sprawl.
