► Description

The most desired daily trip in Korea. DMZ stands for "Demilitarised Zone" and is located near the border of two Koreas. Here you can get an idea of how brutal the war was at the time that it torn the country into two. You will also find a lot of information related to the Korean war specifically. This is a very special tour destination that offers a real vivid eye-opening experience of the Korean War and a dramatic sense of the tragedy of the separated family members between the two from the division of the peninsula.



Imjingak Park
Imjingak, located 7 km from the Military Demarcation Line, is now at the forefront of tourism related to the Korean Conflict.
It was built in 1972 with the hope that someday unification would be possible.
Three-storied Imjingak is surrounded by several Monuments, Unification Park and North Korea Center.
400 kinds of photos and documents showing the stark reality of North Korea are displayed in the North Korea Center of Unification Board. Outside Imjingak, there are 12 kinds of tanks and crafts on display that were used during the Korean Conflict.
Mangbaedan, which stands opposite of Imjingak, is famous for the place where people from North Korea visit and perform ancestral rites by bowing toward their hometown every New Years Day and Chuseok. The Bridge of the Freedom, South Koreans crossed when they came back to their mother country from North Korea, stands behind Mangbaedan.
In front of Imjingak, there is the Gyeongui Train Line which was destroyed during the Korean Conflict in 1950. It has been under construction since 2000.
Every year many events for unification are held at Imjingak.
Imjingak is now one of the famous tourist spots for foreigners in Gyeonggi-do Province because it is possible to visit without going through any security check points.



The 3rd Infiltration Tunnel
The 3rd Tunnel was discovered on October 17, 1978. It is located 52km from Seoul.
Approximately 10,000 soldiers can move through this tunnel in one hour.
When this tunnel was discovered, North Koreans insisted steadfastly that it was made by South Koreans to invade North Korea, but this proved to be false.
Mt. Dora Observation Platform is located nearby the 3rd Tunnel.
From this observation platform, North Korean military personnel are visible, and so are the city of Gaeseong and the Geumgangsan Diamond Mountains.






Insadong Alley

Insa-dong, located in the heart of the city, is an important place where old but precious and traditional goods are on display. There is one main road in Insa-dong with alleys on each side. Within these alleys are galleries, traditional restaurants, traditional teahouses, and cafes.

The galleries are the heartbeat of Insa-dong. There are about 100 galleries in the area and you can see every example of traditional Korean fine art from paintings to sculptures. The most famous galleries are Hakgojae Gallery, which functions as the center of folk art, Gana Art Gallery, which promotes many promising artists, and Gana Art Center.

The teahouses and restaurants are the perfect complement to the galleries. At first they might be hard to find, but if you take the time to stroll around the twisting alleyways, the window shopping in itself can be very entertaining. The shops in Insa-dong are very popular among all age groups, because each one is unique.
