Joint Security Area (JSA) tours will take you to the only portion of the Korean Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) where North and South Korean forces stand face-to-face, and the only spot where you can get to stand in North Korea! DMZ tours usually take you to the Dora Observatory (where you can look into North Korea). One of the most surreal places the world, you can only visit these areas with a tour, as it has restricted civilian access. Make sure to book your tour in advance and bring your passport!
History
After the Korean War, South Korea and North Korea established a border that divided the Korean peninsula roughly in half. Stretching for 2 km on either side of this contended border is the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ). One of the last relics of the Cold War, the DMZ attracts a great deal of public interest, and is a must-see for travelers visiting Korea. From the Dora Observatory, you can even have the chance to look across the border, into one of the most mysterious countries on earth. Feel the palpable tension between these two nations, and be a part of modern military history.
