Wonsan, in the DPRK(Democratic People's Republic of Korea), has the Art Deco trappings of South Beach in Miami, FL. Despite this, where are the guests? Wonsan, Democratic People's Republic of Korea, 01/07/2010
If you want to get a picture of what Miami would look like had the Cuban missile crisis escalated into nuclear Armageddon, I recommend a visit to Wonsan, in the DPRK. Driving around the board walk, you'd expect Dean Martin or Sammy Davis Jr to walk out of the Art Deco hotels. Yet the hotels are empty, the beaches are deserted, the lights go out at 9pm, and they certainly don't know how to make a good Martini.
