The Glorious Democratic People’s Republic of Korea is now allowing tourists to hold onto their capitalist cellphones if they choose to visit the hermit kingdom.

A Koryolink technician told Chinese news agency Xinhua that tourists can now make international calls with WCDMA phones if they pick up a SIM card for €50 and register the phone’s IMEI with customs officials.

However, we are not entirely convinced that the move will attract many foreign tourists, and for that matter, hard currency. Picking North Korea as a holiday destination sounds rather adventurous, if not outright risky.
