KIM Jong-un has had this water park built but only North Korea’s elite can visit due to the high entrance fee.
Israeli tourist Ariel Shalev took the pictures in Pyongyang.
He described how officials closely monitored foreigners throughout their visit – even in the changing rooms.
The 32-year-old lawyer said: “For me, the water park in Pyongyang was the best place to mingle with the locals.
“I talked with students inside the pool and it was very authentic talking.”
But he added all visitors were required to bow to a statue of former leader Kim Jong-il at the park’s entrance.
The park has pools, slides and a gym over 37 acres.
A four-hour visit to the water park reportedly costs the equivalent of £7, while the average North Korean income is just £24 a week.
