This seems to be the same attraction as "Demilitarized Zone" (DMZ) - which is listed as a separate attraction/things to do" in North Korea. I do post another much more detailed review about touring DMZ on a day tour from Pyongyang. Please check the review...More

It is definitely something you are not going to experience everyday! The tension between both parties (south and north) are perceivable. It is a visit full of protocols and highly guarded, but a "must" to be discovered from the North Korean side. I can only...More

A fascinating visit to the exact middle of the DMZ, from the North Korean side. We were even able to enter the blue hut straddling the middle line, which not everybody does. After exiting the hut and from our viewpoint on the North we could...More

Something you don´t see everyday. And you can even take pictures with the North Korean guards. The environment was a bit more tense, with the late events.

Allegedly spanning the entire peninsula directly parallel to the DMZ, the Concrete Wall is “a barrier built by South Korea to fortify its defense against the North and forever split the Korean peninsula in half.” Well, that’s the Party Line as told by a KPA...More

Amazing experience -- especially as we got access to a hut from the North. And straddled the border. Our military guide was friendly and happy for us to take photos. You get a detailed North Korean perspective on the war and peace.....

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

You get double bragging points for visiting the border from the North Korean side. Probably not a good idea to start waving and shouting at the US soldiers over in South Korea. Sadly, my tour group didn't have the chance to go into the blue...More
