The whole place is an interesting experience, but the only way to get here is with tour groups which makes the time constraints placed on you very frustrating on top of the reasonable and expected military guidelines (constraints set forth). It was interesting being escorted by US soldiers who were freely giving insights into life being stationed there. They are... More

The place you really have to go to when you visit the Republic of Korea. When I went on a visit South Korea I went on the the DMZ/JSA tour. I went through Cosmojin tour agency and I had a wonderful time on this tour. I was amazed with the professional guide who seemed like an expert about the DMZ/JSA... More

Had a day Tour to the DMZ. Very interesting and exciting. Learnt lots. Good English speaking guide lunch included. Went into the "Blue House" where the borders meet. Able to take photos in most areas. The JMA area is well worth the visit. Also the bridge of No Return, Camp Bonifas where the 2 American soldiers were murdered seemed a... More

The missus and I visited this as part of the DMZ/JSA tour, really recommend it - it's is like the Ypres or other sites in western Europe, but it still has actors. Highlight for us was seeing the North Korean soldier on duty randomly hiding being the pillar and raising his eyeglass/telescope like a weird ship less pirate and looking... More

The JSA tour was the most restrictive tour I have ever taken. Dress code is strictly enforced - no shorts, open toed shoes, sleeveless shirts, clothing with country names and/or flags. Minimal photo opportunities. I had to delete a photo I took. You are closely monitored at ALL times by ROK soldiers. Time at each site is extremely brief. A... More

To visit the Joint Security Area (the border) you need to go via a tour. Check with your hotel or guide if you go from the North side. There are various of tours available from the South, but I recommend the one that takes you to all the places (3rd infiltration tunnel, JSA, etc) otherwise it will only be a... More

The Panmunjon DMZ visit was the highlight of my trip to Korea. The military orientation and visit to the conference room that straddles the DMZ was great.

This tour was fascinating. The bus took us to the military base where we transferred to a military bus with a U.N soldier and a South Korean special Operations soldier on board. Everything was very structured for our safety. We went to the DMZ zone and saw both North and South Korean soldiers standing guard. A special attractionn was a... More

The Korean DMZ now claims the title as the most heavily guarded border in the world. This place is a must-visit place, if you really want to see is that true, what you see in movies, Youtube videos and other publications- about South and North Korea tension. In order to go here, you have to contact the tour agency. Many... More
