Is North Korea safe?

North Korea can be a safe place to stay, but it depends on how you look at it. If you walk up to the heavily guarded border, slap the guards in the face with the backside of your rifle and just walk into the country, then you will be in serious trouble. There you go, that’s what you wanted to hear! :)
Is North Korea safe for tourists? Yes. For tourists North Korea is a perfectly safe place to be.
