I'd like to ask your opinion on whether it's a good idea or not to use the TAILS operating system (which comes with Tor buit in) while on my trip as a tourist to North Korea. The tour organizer says it's possible to access the Internet in North Korea if you buy a SIM card which is sold only to foreigners.

I intend to bring my own laptop and a USB stick from which i will boot the TAILS OS. I absolutely do not intend to perform any activities deemed as illegal or defamatory by the North Korean authorities. I just want to use TAILS + Tor for extra anonymity while browsing the Internet.

Do you think it's risky and it would seem suspicious if my USB stick is inspected and they find out TAILS on it? Do you know of any cases where foreigners successfully accessed Tor from North Korea and would you recommend its usage while in that country?

Yes it is too risky.

I absolutely do not intend to perform any activities deemed as illegal or defamatory by the North Korean authorities.

Using Tor at all may be deemed illegal. You can imagine that if you use the internet, every single packet will be scrutinized and they can see that you are using Tor even if they can't see what you are doing. Why take that kind of risk?
