We were unable to leave the bus. Indeterminate how much longer that restriction will last, however, we were able to drive by a Checkpoint Charlie and the Bridge of No Return, which were not often previously accessible.

A visit to the Tower afforded a view into NoKo lying across the Imjin River from South Korea on a cold, dreary day. The observation point also overlooks Southern forces facilities and defenses. The interior of the tower looked to have some very interesting displays...More

The observatory allows visitors a view into close-by PDRK including some of the propaganda towers and ghost towns built by the PDRK to project an image of strength, if they were actually occupied. Chilled air blowers are a welcome comfort in summer.

Very well organized observatory where you can see North Korea territory. If it is a clear day, most probably you will be able to see some people walking or working in the fields. We went on a weekday and there were few people.

The shuttle comes by every 10 minutes so it is a very short wait. I missed one because it was full and the next was 10 minutes behind. Plus is is free.
