Things to do on your trip to South Korea:
Take a trip between the games and see the DMZ Zone. Pay a visit to the boundary that divides North and South Korea on this half-day tour to the Demilitarized Zone. Step into one of the North Korean infiltration tunnels, look out across the country from the Dora observatory, and get a look at the unresolved history of the Korean War. After meeting your guide and setting out from Seoul, visit the city of Paju for a look at the monuments of Imjingak Park. See the Bridge of Freedom, used by prisoners of war who were repatriated from the North, and the community of Unification Village in between South and North Korea.Next, head to the Third Infiltration Tunnel, an incomplete passage built by North Korea that runs under the Demilitarized Zone. Discovered in 1978, the tunnel passes through bedrock 240 feet (73 m) below ground. Within, tourists can walk up to the concrete barricades that block off the Military Demarcation Line between North and South.Once you’re back on the surface, the tour takes you up the slopes of Mount Dora for a look across the country from the Dora Observatory. In good weather, you can see all the way to North Korea without using the observatory’s telescope. Look out at the 2.4 mile (4 km) stretch of the DMZ that has divided Korea since 1953 before you return back to your hotel.
