Not many people have the opportunity to travel to North Korea — or may want to with all of the travel warnings, imprisonments and the like — but curiosity still abounds.
According to an article in Travel + Leisure, only about 5,000 Westerners visit the country each year but, now, you can travel there without leaving your couch.
Photographer Aram Pan created a one-hour video of his drive through the capital of North Korea, Pyongyang and, now, armchair travelers the world over can get a glimpse of what the city is like.
Pan used a special 280-degree lens to enhance the experience and so you can look up and down while you are viewing, almost as though you are really there.
