A living legacy of the Korean War, the Korean Demilitarized Zone is a neutral area dividing North Korea and South Korea. The border is still heavily guarded and armed to this day but can be visited by tourists. The DMZ was created in 1953 by an armistice signed by the United Nations Command (UNC), North Korea and China.
How to visit the DMZ?
DMZ tours from Seoul must be booked online and in advance with a company that organizes guided excursions.Visitors are not allowed in the DMZ on their own.

Sites that can be seen or visited on the tours of DMZ:

Imjingak Resort
See memorials and monuments like the Bell of Peace, Mangaeban Altar, an old steam train, a colorful prayer ribbon wall and the Bridge of Freedom (Bridge of No Return) where prisoners of war were exchanged after the Korean War armistice.

3rd Tunnel / The Third Tunnel of Aggression / Third Infiltration Tunnel
Get a chance to explore the most famous of four infiltration tunnels discovered to be running under the border of North and South. The 1.6-kilometer long underground passageway goes 73 meters below ground and is the closest of such tunnel to Seoul.

Dora Observatory
From the observatory on a clear day, you can take a rare view into the outskirts of North Korea including the city of Kaesong and a statue of Kim Il-sung.

Dorasan Station
The northernmost station in South Korea that may one day connect the North and South.
