Tourists are flocking to an unexpected destination

If you could visit any country in the world, where would you go? Most people would probably pick amazing locales like Paris or a tropical island. But, for more and more western travelers, there's a new must-visit destination out there. And, it's not where you'd think.

In fact, you probably didn't even know Americans could travel to this country. But, it's true. Increasing numbers of Americans and Europeans are taking vacations to North Korea since the country eased travel restrictions in 2010. Now, between 3,000 and 5,000 westerners are visiting each year.

No matter where you're going, you've got to read these 6 tricks to get the most out of your gadget while traveling.

I'm a travel buff and I like to visit new places, but that sounds crazy to me. Why would people spend their hard-earned money to travel to a country with such a bad reputation? If you're like me, a trip to North Korea doesn't sound fun - it sounds really scary!

It turns out I'm not alone. Plenty of people are scared by the thought of visiting North Korea. That's why there's an entire industry of websites and apps out there trying to ease fears and increase western tourism to North Korea. You'll actually have to use one of these services if you want to make the trip, because it's still difficult to get into the country.
