China launches cruise to N. Korean scenic resort

(THE KOREA HERALD/ASIA NEWS NETWORK) - A cruise to North Korea's scenic mountain resort from China has officially been launched, Chinese media reported on Saturday. According to the China News, some 100 Chinese tourists from the north-eastern province of Jilin sailed along the North's east coast to visit Mount Kumgang on a four-day itinerary early on Friday. After crossing the border to North Korea by land from the city of Hunchun in the Yanbian Korean Autonomous Prefecture, the tourists boarded a cruise ship in the North Korean city of Rason, the media said. 'This holds significance as it is a first marine tourism route to visit the mountain from China,' said an official of the Yanbian Chunwoo International Travel Agency, which has an exclusive right to run the route.
