I am glad I had the possibility to visit this zone. It is living memorial. This is good to maintain this zone in order to keep it in memory.

It is a political place you must see as if you cant be in Korea without seeing the DMZ. That is the nearest place you will be to that NK devil.

The area is green and beautiful, in contrast to the known history of war and fighting between north and south Korea. I arrived to DMZ station by myself and took the bus organized trip to Dora train station, observatory, and the 3rd tunnel for less than 15$. In addition, there is a nice park next to the tickets purchasing office.... More

Amazing experience to see the DMZ place, especially the 3rd tunnel. It was a long underground tunnel. Easy to walk down, but hard to walk back up. Also you can see N.Korea from the observation centre.

Here are some tips if you want to visit the DMZ; what I didn't know is that you need to book a tour with at least 48 hrs in advance so by the time we wanted to visit we only have one choice which was to take the DMZ train. This train takes like 2 hrs 30min to bring you... More

The tour is well run. Make sure you have your passport. There is a monorail to take you down the tunnel. Try to book that tour, if you don't want to walk, it is a pretty good incline. You will learn a lot.

Did the DMZ tour which took about 3 hours (includes shuttle bus travel). Make sure you get there early around 8:45-9AM to catch the first few shuttles as the parking lot was probably 75-80% full by the time we left around 12:30pm. The ticket booth opens at 9:00AM with the first shuttle / tour (1 bus) being at 9:20AM and... More

Interesting to learn about the demilitarized zone. There are some lookout points where you can see towns towards the border of North Korea.
