North Korean Officials Visit Spain to get Beach Resort
|Leader Kim Jong-Un|
Even the North Koreans are willing to admit they aren’t the best at everything however, which is why the nation is known to (unofficially) import computers, cars, and wines from around the world.
While one could hardly import their own ready-made beach resort, North Koreans are doing the best they actually can do; which is sending20 officials off to the Spanish resorts of Salou and Benidorm in order to learn from the best how to deliver great tourism.
The Daily Telegraph reports that Dear Leader Kim Jong-Un is looking to build a Mediterranean-style resort in the North Korean coastal city of Wonsan.
The North Korean embassy of Madrid did indeed confirm officials enjoyed a fact-finding road-trip along the Mediterranean coast of Spain, stopping in Benidorm; where officials were reportedly amazed by the dimensions of the famous holiday parks and towers of the resort.
The officials also cited the Marina d’Or tourism complex of Orpoesa del Mar as being the closest thing to what North Korea are planning to build in Wonsan. They say that the new resort in the country is to be aimed at both domestic and international markets.
The 20 officials from North Korea are said to have visited Barcelona but were reportedly unimpressed with the architectural and cultural highlights of the city; rather they focused on the beaches that surround the edges of the city.
A spokesman from the embassy said that they were so focused on the beaches because that is what they were most interested in.
The history-based theme park Terra Mitica of Benidorm might serve as an inspiration for North Korea, however, as they said that it might be a good idea to create a theme park that shows how North Korea achieved perfection.
The embassy said that the delegates loved seeing how the theme park recreated Mediterranean civilisations, and felt it would be interesting to apply the concept to a theme park of their own; perhaps one covering Asian civilisations.
All that’s left now is to wonder how the delegates will eel after seeing the glitz, glamour, and individual wealth of areas such as PuertoBanús and the Costa del Sol.
