North Korea: better than the second Royal baby?
20th October 2014

If you couldn't stomach all the Royal baby hype last year, next April may not be for you. The Duchess of Cambridge is expecting her second child. 

If you're not in the mood for double page spreads dedicated to a tiny infant who you'll probably never meet and who certainly won't know or care who you are, it's perfectly understandable that you may wish to escape the country. 

Should this be the case, the Independent's senior travel editor Simon Calder talks you through the best countries best suited to silencing the eternal drone that is Royal baby commentary.  Have you heard of North Korea? Charming for that sort of thing.
