I've visited Panmunjom from both the South and the North, and it was a better experience from the South. We were able to go into the blue meeting halls on the border when we visited from the South, but not from the North. And from...More

A definite highlight of my trip to DPRK although we didn't get to go inside the little blue buildings on the borderline. We visited the Armistice signing room before arriving here which I found a bit more interesting but hey not many Westerners get to...More

The concrete wall is presented as a tourist attraction but it is difficult to see much of it despite the telescopes. You get all the usual statistics and anti imperialist stuff but it isn't very interesting.

This was one of the most intense places i visited in DPRK. From a watchtower we could have a look at the concrete wall and the South Korean Defences. This is deep in the DMZ and there should be no weaponry. When looking through my...More

Worth a visit! Great to see this spot, all the security. Good options to make nice pictures. There is also a souvenir shop where you can buy handmade propaganda posters, 30 euro's each.
