a VirtualTourist member from Helsinki
I have been for the last two months arranging a trip consisting basically in going from Helsinki, where I live, to Vladivostok by train and then to North Korea.
The problem is that I just want to be 3 days there (it is SO expensive) and apparently the only way to go there is by plane, which departs only once a week in each direction.
I'm begging for help as the travel agencies I have been asking for have more or less making me lose my time, and now I'm in a hurry since the whole trip will be from 16th of June to 21st of July, and I only have three weeks to make the visa (in Stockholm, Sweden), but before, I need to agree the dates.
My question is:
- Do you know the dates/times of departures of trains from Vladivostok or Khasan to Pyongyang? And prices?
- The same in the opposite direction.
I need this information in order to state the exact entry and departure date for North Korea, but since the last month I have been asking travel agencies and I only got partial answers (such as, "yeah! there are two trains a week from Khasan", ok, but which days??) which doesn't allow me to decide one specific date.
Please, to the ones living in Vladivostok, help!
Thank you very much!
