Despite being one the world’s most authoritarian and isolated countries, North Korea’s doors remain open to tourists, who spend downtime in Pyongyang’s architecturally beguiling hotels, dining in grand banquet halls, belting out numbers in kitsch karaoke rooms, and taking in the evening view from one of the revolving restaurants. Asia specialist and podcast host James Scullin has collaborated with photographer Nicole Reed to create Hotels of Pyongyang, capturing the surprising variety of North Korean architecture and design, from historic brutalist Soviet to modern shining marble, in a luxuriously designed and printed volume with over 150 beautiful photographs, and four in-depth essays.
