Songdowon Bathing Resort Crowded with Holidaymakers

Pyongyang, August 24 (KCNA) — The Songdowon Bathing Resort, a famous scenic spot of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, has still been crowded with holidaymakers even after the hottest period of the summer.

There are a long pier, diving boards, showering facilities and soft-drink stands on the far-extending beach. All these are blended with people sunbathing on the beach and wading in water.

Seen among the holidaymakers are young amateur swimmers braving waves, schoolchildren diving from high boards to demonstrate their skill, women playing with their children in water, old folks swimming with a butterfly stroke, athletes sailing yachts and middle-aged people sunbathing on the beach.

An official of the resort told KCNA that much more people have come to it this year than last year. Many of them are tourists from other provinces.

Also seen among the holidaymakers are overseas Koreans and foreigners staying in the DPRK.
