We had a very pleasant stay in Paju City. Away from the hustle and noise of Seoul. We also went to the DNZ from here as Paju is about 10 kilometres from the North Korean border.

Paju Book City is surrounded by terrific architecture structures and buildings. It's a pretty quiet city on its own, but the trip to the book city's library and cafe was quite an eye opener. Worth a trip there if you're an architecture or arts lover.
