That night-time picture is incredible - but I am surprised there are so many lights on in the buildings! There are so many power cuts and electricity shortages, it's incredible how much of the city is lit up in that picture!

Hiking around Pyongyang, the hotel is visible in the far background.

The hotel is clad from outside and the interior structure reinforced. Currently there are no prospects of opening lower floors due to lack of interest. Kempinski was interested not so long ago but it turned out their CEO squandered ~5m Euro so they started counting money

I wish I was a CEO. Then I could be incompetent.

Due to severe international sanctions on financial transactions and an unpredictable government its absolutely impossible for any foreign firm to invest into NK. That's the main reason why Kempinsky couldn't invest.

Quote:
“It can be said that the project would have been very risky for a number of reasons: uncertain market demand, political risk, contract risk, exchange rate risk, logistics, infrastructure, insurance risk, etc. Given this investment climate, it is unlikely that just one straw broke the camel’s back”, Melvin told NK NEWS.

Even Orascom now got screwed over by the NK government, as they lost control over Koryolink. (Article here: http://www.northkoreatech.org/2015/1...ver-koryolink/)
