No Shopping DMZ Half Day Tour from Seoul

123 reviews
Enjoy the highlights of the DMZ and get back to Seoul in time for lunch on a guided group tour. Listen to immersive commentary during visits to Imjingak Park, Dora Observatory, and other important landmarks. Have your camera ready for an unobstructed view of one of the world's most famous demilitarized zones. Best of all, this excursion does not include unnecessary shopping stops that other tours add on, which saves you valuable vacation time.

This is a stunning temple, which appeals to all of the senses (for me, it was the incense). This temple is separated from - but not isolated from - the surrounding metropolis.

A liturgical church with many devotees. I had the opportunity to hear the monk’s divine psalms and feel part of the world. It’s an oasis in the daily madness. It’s worth visiting and praying regardless of your religion!!

We were fortunate to be there when they had an annual ceremony, so we were able to see a small part of the services. Even though the temple is in the middle of the city, it was very peaceful. Everyone was very welcoming and it was free, in fact we got to drink tea and light incense for free. I didnt see a place to give a donation, so i bought a few beautiful pray beads.

This is such a beautiful piece of history located right in the middle of the city and yet it's still so peaceful there. Could be that each time I went it was raining but either way. I'd definitely go back if I ever get to Seoul again
