I’ve already written a review under Camp Boniface so thought I’d highlight a few things I would have found useful before I went;
1. You will only see Panmunjom if you book a joint JSA/DMZ tour. Some people on our coach seemed to think it...More
You're only able to visit this area with specific tour groups in Seoul and it's a unique experience being at a place that is both well known and dangerous at the same time.
There were no North Korean guards when we visited and we have...More
If you've done your research, then hopefully you've found one of the few tour groups that will actually take you all the way to the buildings of Panmunjom, while the other tours have concluded miles away. And by the time your bus has reached the...More
