DMZ Past and Present: Korean Demilitarized Zone Tour from Seoul

After a hotel pickup in downtown Seoul, travel to the Korean Demilitarized Zone (DMZ), the world’s most protected border, dividing North and South Korea since the Korean War.

Visit Imjingak Park to see the artillery that was used during the Korean War. Walk to the Freedom Bridge and learn about the nearly 13,000 POWs who crossed it on their path to freedom in South Korea. See the Third Infiltration Tunnel, one of four known tunnels under the border between North Korea and South Korea.

At the DMZ Museum, take a look at the photographs and war artifacts on display. Then head to the Dora Observatory to look across the DMZ into North Korea and learn about life on the other side. After a stop at the restored Dorasan Station, the railway station that once connected North and South Korea, proceed to the Unification Village to see what life is like in this small farming community.

Proceed to the Amethyst Factory or Ginseng Center before returning to Seoul City Hall.

For those on the morning or afternoon tour only, travel back to Seoul at this point. Those who selected the morning tour with lunch will stop at a local restaurant before returning to Seoul.

With the full-day tour option, enjoy lunch, then visit Insadong Antique Market, one of the most memorable attractions in Seoul, representing the focal point of Korean traditional culture and crafts.

The tour ends with a return trip to Seoul.

One of the main reasons for my trip to S. Korea was to visit the DMZ. Now that I have fulfilled my ambition, I strongly recommend that anyone visiting South Korea makes this trip a priority. Standing, looking through binoculars into N Korea, a land that is out of bounds for the citizens of the South of the country to enter, or the tourist for that matter, will baffle you as to how countries become divided in the name of PEACE, as a settlement for murders inflicted on each other in the name of WAR. One of the most moving parts of the trip for me was the train station, which is built for the Future, is ready for the journey to PYONGYANG, the capital of N Korea. I sincerely hope that sooner rather than later the train will make that journey, and the people of KOREA are united and FREE. THIS TRIP IS A MUST DO FOR ANY TRAVELLER.

We had a terrific guide named Hans who is a Captain in the army and had so much knowledge of the DMZ. It was incredible to hear his stories and then see in person the different areas of the DMZ. Well worth the visit.
