Richard Bangs, Returns from North Korea and talks about this one of a cultural exchange.
Considering North Korea as a Tourism Destination
Richard Bangs not only considered it, he worked with the North Korean government for many years to finally bring the first US tourists to this 'Hermit Kingdom' in Sept of 2012.
These forerunners of North Korean tourism agreed to deposit their cell phones in plastic bags and hand them over for safe keeping while inside of North Korea. The US tourists were allowed to take cameras, laptops, and tablets inside the country.

We celebrate the industry with Sharon Baron Lobo this week as we discuss an organization that is close to my heart, Airline Ambassadors International.
