We went in summer of 2018 with 4,000 people at a time and about 12,000 for the day. Crowded! But a lot of pools and water slides (queues for the top slides). We just went to the outside section, which is big enough: an Olympic...More

When I went in May, the outdoors section was still closed for the season. This is still an awesome respite from boring and somber historical monuments when visiting North Korea. The local North Koreans are super friendly, the facilities are pristine, beautiful, and fun, and...More

The Munsu Water Park is one of the few places where you're able to ditch your guides and interact with locals. We got some applause when we jumped off of the 10 meter platform, and we had a laugh when some of the younger girls...More

My kids were really looking forward to going to a water park in the DPRK but alas it was closed due to the national holiday. We got to Moran Hill though - almost as good.

Wish I brought my swimsuit too! The park is quite big and very nicely maintained. Everything was spanking clean. Even though we thought it strange that our tour included a water park, we were all glad that we went.

Opened just a few years ago, the water park is impressive more for its existence in Pyongyang alongside the country's problems than it is inherently attractive. Nothing special by western water parks standards. Wonder what the rural poor think of it... a case of "let...More

Nice place. Nice to use a large water park completely on my own surrounded by "guides" and "guards". Frankly, I think most North Koreans worry more about food than tgoing to the water park. But it is was nice having an olympic sized pool completely...More
