Planning a North Korean roadtrip?
You’re in luck—for the first time, Google Maps allows users to calculate driving and walking directions throughout one of the world’s most isolated countries.
The system isn’t perfect: it can only rely on roads known to Google and can’t provide directions to areas outside of the country’s closed borders. Plus, its utility is pretty limited in a country with few private cars and virtually no Internet access.
Drawbacks in mind, though: the maps provide some of the closest looks of the country’s infrastructure available to outsiders today.
