DMZ Tour was consisted of four memorial places : Imjingak Park, The 3rd Infiltration Tunnel, Dora Observatory, and Dorasan Station. My favorite part was the 3rd Tunnel.

I booked the JSA/DMZ tour offered by the USO and Komidoor in Soul. It can be booked online and is one of the tours that offers both the JSA and the DMZ. If you go to the DMZ and do not go the the JSA your have missed the best and most important part of what you need to see.... More

The JSA is a very interesting place to visit and really shows a lot about the current situation in Korea. The DMZ is a bit too toursity and not nearly as relavent to the subject.

This is a once in a life time opportunity! If you go on the official USO tour, you go to the joint security area where you stand on the actual North Korea border and watch the North Korean soldiers on the other side. You also go in to a meeting room that straddles the border so you can say you've... More

We took the DMZ train from Seoul station. It was half empty on a Tuesday morning but sold out on Sunday afternoon. Doesn't run on Mondays. I would book it a day or so in advance at Seoul station. It cost 15,300 return. You have to purchase a return ticket. You also have to have your passport. Once at Dorasan... More
