Its a great place to pay respects to the fallen, but i do dislike how people take photos and treat it more like a tourist site.

This is a peaceful and somber place where soldiers from the Korean War were laid to rest. It is a beautiful setting with lovely trees around the cemetery area and many monuments. Take your time walking through the grounds. There is also a small museum and a chapel with an informative video playing.

Very well kept place where you can find some quiet space from city noise. If you know history or visit some other historical military places, it's easier to understand how important place this is.

Good place to visit, pay tribute and appreciate the sacrifices made in the name for peace. It is beautifully maintained and I was moved by the atmosphere. Had the chance to watch the UN flag lowering ceremony that afternoon (closing time). The memorabilia hall, video and history there is just too much to skip.

As you come through the main gates, accept the salute given to you by the UN guards and then proceed directly ahead into the chapel. Here you can watch a film (it alternated between Korean & English versions) which will give you a good overview of the Korean war and the reason and purpose of the cemetery. Then proceed to... More

This was a very well-spent afternoon. There's plenty to look at and appreciate at the cemetery, including a 15-minute video about how the cemetery came about. There are also many events on weekends; I was fortunate enough to see a tribute to the Philippine fallen, which included a marching band and gun salute. Free admission. It was a little hard... More
