We enjoyed walking through a North Korean submarine and a wooden boat that North Koreans used to escape . There is a decommissioned Naval ship to walk through as well. There is a offer shop on board and a small gift shop. Nice views of the sea, beautiful clear emerald green water.

Go to the South of Anin Beach in Google Maps and drive along the road closest to the coast going from North to South. Trip Advisor does not allow me to post the city where the actual location is located and I am unable to add the location either (probably because of the language conversion). The road you want to...

CYC ( 2014.01.17 ) There was a good place to see Korea's condition. There was a retired ship, North Korea's submarine, vehicle and exhibits. But there was leave something to be desired of lack of English explanation, deflective confrontaion with North Korea. Except this, there was a good museum about South and North Korea's tension.

The warship and the submarine in the park show a glimps of tensions between north and south Korea. To visit the submarine you grab a helmet to avoid bumping your head. Being 1.96 m I.m glad I used it. The warship is ok but not spectacular. Keep in mind that there is no taxistand. It means go back to the... More
