North Korean state media offered a look at the hotel room Kim Jong Un stayed in during his time in Singapore, and it’s super nice.
Singapore, picking up the tab for the young dictator, put him up in the presidential suite at the five-star St. Regis hotel. The cost of the room can run as high as $9,000 a night, according to the New York Post. The St. Regis presents itself as “the epitome of luxury hotels.”
The 3,606-square-foot presidential suite is a lavish facility decorated with custom-made crystal chandeliers, paintings by world-famous artists, and a private balcony offering remarkable views of a prosperous capitalist nation. In addition to the master bedroom, the room also includes a living room, kitchen, dining room, and private gym.
The pictures of Kim’s hotel room appeared in a 42-minute documentary on his trip to Singapore and his landmark summit with President Donald Trump. The video also offers splendid vistas of Singapore at night, images from Kim’s late-night tours. The propaganda showed Singapore’s impressive development, images of a world that would be unimaginable for most North Korean people.
Roughly 70 percent of North Korea’s 25 million people are classified as “food insecure,” according to the United Nations World Food Programme.
The video features a lot of unseen footage from the historic summit.
WATCH: Kim Jong Un’s Adventures Abroad
North Korean leader Kim Jong Un returned home to North Korea Wednesday, receiving a hero’s welcome. North Korean state media cheered Kim as a “prominent world leader” who has transformed North Korea into a “top country in the world. The accolade is despite the fact that the video and pictures from the summit presented in the country’s state media suggest that the parts of the world beyond North Korea’s borders are significantly more developed than the impoverished country Kim’s rules with an iron fist.
Of course, Kim Jong Un got a hero's welcome when he returned to Pyongyang from the summit with Donald Trump, which North Korea's state media have described repeatedly as the start of a new chapter in history. pic.twitter.com/90mOb0Mov7
