北김정은, 비행기•열차로 하노이 이동 가능... 현지에선 경제시설 방문 가능성
Keeping our sights fixed on the host country.
Pyeongyang's protocol chief is checking out various spots around Hanoi.
The places the official visits provides hints as to how the North Korean leader will make his way to Vietnam and where he'll drop by during his stay.
Here's Oh Jung-hee with the details.
Kim Jong-un will reportedly arrive in Hanoi on February 25th, a couple of days ahead of his summit with President Trump.
For his journey from Pyeongyang to Vietnam, two options are available -- plane and train.
It's likely that Kim Jong-un will take his personal jet Chammae-1 and land at Noi Bai International Airport.
Or, he could choose a safer option and use a Chinese plane, just like he did for the Singapore summit.
Either way, it will take about 3 and a half hours from North Korea to Vietnam by air.
But it's also possible Kim could take a special train.
Over the weekend, the North's protocol chief Kim Chang-son visited Vietnamese city of Lang Son on the border with China... and had a quick look at the rail tracks.
This has led to speculation that Kim Jong-un may travel to Lang Son by train, and then travel to Hanoi by road.
That would take about 60 hours.
As this will be Kim Jong-un's first state visit to Vietnam, Kim will meet the Vietnamese President... and visit Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum to pay his respects.
Ho Chi Minh had two summits with Kim Il-sung, the late former North Korean leader and Kim Jong-un's grandfather.
But considering Kim Jong-un's strong will to develop the North's economy, it's highly likely that Kim will tour around spots that symbolize Vietnam's economic development.
Reuters reports that he'll visit the manufacturing base of Bac Ninh and the industrial port city of Hai Phong.
It's possible that Kim will visit Bac Ninh, because Pyeongyang's protocol chief stopped over there and reportedly visited Samsung Electronics' smartphone factory on Sunday.
Other possible stops are the Vietnam Academy of Agricultural Sciences and Hoa Lac Hi-Tech Park... where the North's foreign minister Ri Yong-ho visited last year to study Vietnam's Doi Moi economic reforms.
Meanwhile, Kim is highly likely to stop by at the famous tourist destination, Ha Long Bay, to learn how to boost the North's tourism industry.
It was also visited by his grandfather in 1964.
