A RECENT visit to a Benidorm campsite by North Korean officials has inspired controversial leader Kim Jong-Un to build a purpose built holiday resort.

The delegation visited the area last month on a fact finding mission around Europe.

Now, Spanish newspaper El Confidencial is reporting that the delegates, who have now returned to North Korea, gave very favourable reports about Benidorm.

The visitors were less than impressed with Barcelona, but loved the Terra Mitica theme park and the Villasol camp site in Benidorm.

The North Korean leader has now given the green light for work to begin on a purpose built tourist development on the North East coast at Wonsan, which will target both domestic and foreign tourists.

A spokesman for the North Korean embassy in Madrid told the newspaper that the resort would be ready for it’s first tourists by mid 2018 and would not feature the high rise buildings of Benidorm.

Instead, guests will  stay in tents, just like the ones the officials saw on their visit last month.
