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

The hop on hop off bus takes has a stop at the cemetery. It's is such an amazing site, very moving and peaceful and the gardens alone are worth getting off the bus for. You only need an hour to see the whole place. The wall of remember acne is touching as it has over 43k soldiers names. There is... 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

There are a lot of strange-looking trees. They look like the body of human. The cherry blossoms are so beautiful during April. I will write my review about this place soon in my blog.

walking through rows of tombstone lining the gentle slope of the memorial, my heart sank when I see many of the soldiers were only nineteen year old when they die. Life is so unfair as it seem to die so young as they were sent to the front line to act as a shield. To visit the UN memorial ground... More

With only a short time to visit the Cemetery I was disappointed not to have the time to fully explore this wonderful site. It is a credit to South Korea that so much time and care and respect goes into this facility!
