The Ryugyong Hotel is a 105-story pyramid-shaped skyscraper in Pyongyang, North Korea. Building began in 1987 but stopped when funding ran out in the 1990s. Exterior construction resumed three years ago, but few have been allowed inside.
Beijing-based Koryo Tours released photographs of the Ryugyong Hotel in North Korea. The tour agency got a peek at the interior of the hotel in Pyongyang, the capital. Photos taken show a bare concrete lobby, as well as sweeping views of Pyongyang from a viewing platform.
