Explore this high-tension area of South Korea and discover the different monuments that remember peace, freedom and the Korean War. Head to the Korean Demilitarized Zone and catch spectacular views of the serene rice paddies and the North Korean Propaganda Village. After passing through strict checkpoints of the DMZ, watch a quick video at the DMZ Exhibition Hall and make your way to the Third Tunnel.

If the DMZ is unavailable, you can still get close to the border with a Northern Limit Line Tour from Seoul which includes a visit to the Korean War Memorial.
