Fascinating. We were on a tour with a tour guide but irrespective, there is plenty of info available here to provide good context (just need google translate to assist on occasion). Interesting views of the north. !! Well worth a visit.

Here stands a tower in hopes of reunification of the two Koreas. In a way, the tower symbolizes just how far apart they are. A solid, modern structure overlooking a poor, backwards, downtrodden neighbor. This is a good place to see North Korea from.

This special place we visited early in the morning as it shall be. It was a clear day and the tour operator was very nice and informative. From the tower you can see just a few miles away the other side of the River and appreciate North Korea views, housing and other interesting things.

Inside the place has a coffee shop and a gift shop. There is also an exhibition where you can see all information related as the past, present and future of this area.

there are some interesting and moving pictures as well of deflectors, families, and moments when they were re-united.

The tower has an upper roof-floor where you have telescopes and you will be able to appreciate more in detail the other side of the river. Meaning: North Korea.

Is exciting in a way as you are looking at history into the making. Highly recommended.

We didn’t expect to see North Korea at such close distance just an hour out of Seoul. The history was very interesting and the contrasts between the North/South Korea were just beyond words. 500m only yet worlds apart......

At the confluence of the two key rivers this place seems dedicated to convincing all comers of the case for a Unification despite the series of provocations

Very nice facility offering panoramic views of the DMZ and North Korea. With the aid of binoculars you can see across the river and glimpses of life in the north. Folks farming and on bikes on dirt roads.

A chilling experience when you think about it.

You can see the narrowest part of the DMZ 461 meters.

Facility is well done and thoughtful.

My friend, his mom and I drove to the tower to check out the view of North Korea. It took about an hour by car to get there but as you got closer you noticed barbed wire, fencing and guard towers laid out on one side of the freeway. Definitely an interesting view and sensation.

Once we got to the entrance we were told that we had to park down the street and take a shuttle up the hill to the tower. One can park along the side of the street or drive into the parking area and pay a small fee and be close to the shuttle drop off/pick up point. Longest wait was about 10 minutes.

Once at the tower, you pay a small entry fee and you have full access. On the second floor there is a theatre that showed old footage of the Korean War with narration in English and Korean. On the third floor is the observation deck where you can look at North Korea for free. I recommend you enter the atrium area where a small 3D panorama map is displayed. Using that as a guide you can see a few more interesting things on the scope. On a clear day you can see Panmunjom off in the distance. You could also see North Koreans working in the fields across the river. On the fourth floor there is a small snack shop and area to relax.

I did enjoy the visit there and recommend it as an inexpensive and easy way to check out the North.

We were unable to leave the bus. Indeterminate how much longer that restriction will last, however, we were able to drive by a Checkpoint Charlie and the Bridge of No Return, which were not often previously accessible.

A visit to the Tower afforded a view into NoKo lying across the Imjin River from South Korea on a cold, dreary day. The observation point also overlooks Southern forces facilities and defenses. The interior of the tower looked to have some very interesting displays but we had arrived late on a winter day and the facilities were in the process of closing so I could not see very much of them. I was happy with the visit but wish I had had more time there.

The observatory gives you a great view of North Korea. There are free binoculars to see the northern side. On a clear day, you will be able to see the "fake village" as well as real villages and the people who iive in them going about their daily life. There is a short documentary in several languages available to watch that is informative as well.
