They could build a dome using the top of the Ryugyong Hotel as the middle and cover a huge portion of the city. Kinda like Logans Run (70's movie starring Michael York and Farah Faucett) There are actually a couple buildings in that movie that look a LOT like this structure.

Why wouldn't you be able to visit it? I saw the Ryugyong in person a few years ago. As by then it was still deserted I obviously didn't visit the building itself.

Even Mecca is possible if you convert. It's not that hard, though you may go to hell if you fake a conversion solely for that purpose. ;-)
