The ‘floating hotel’ rusting absent in North Korea

(CNN) — It was when an special 5-star resort floating directly over Australia’s Terrific Barrier Reef. Right now, it sits dilapidated in a North Korean port, a 20-minute travel from the Demilitarized Zone, the limited location that separates the two Koreas.

For the world’s to start with floating resort, that’s the past end in a strange 10,000-mile journey that began above 30 years in the past with glamorous helicopter rides and great dining, but ended with a tragedy.
