North Korea launched a tourism website on Monday, despite a currently active travel ban on international visitors over Ebola fears.

The site, dprktoday.com, showcases local attractions and customers. There are the pyramid-shaped water parks, children in traditional dress, and statues of dictator Kim Jong-Un to visit. The site also features pictures of indigenous flowers, birds, dogs, and, under the news section, photos of short-range missiles.

The state media for the dictatorship said it started the site to "satisfy growing interest and expectation," according to a report in the South Korean Yonhap News.
