Trip Report DMZ - Sneak Peak of North Korea Travel Report

Jump to last reply

The realm of North Korea is mysterious – the isolation makes people wondering what’s going on the other side of the world. Restricted internet access, limited travel permits, and a limited connection between the locals and the outside world, makes me want to know about the lifestyle and ideology of the North Koreans.

Technically, (or in fact?) the country is still at war. At the end of the Korea War, a 250kms long & 4 km wide strip of desolated land was established between the North and South Korea (and became the two countries border), based on the agreement between the two parties at war, and the strip is called the DMZ – Korea Demilitarized Zone. Both North and South Korea have ‘ceased fire’ yet the DMZ is the battlefield between the two countries. Both sides remained hostile 8km apart, and the only living things could enter the DMZ are birds and wildlife. The only meeting point between the Koreas is the JSA (Joint Security Area).

I enjoyed very much and amazing culinary and shopping experience in the city of Seoul and I was also interested in having a sneak peek of the North Korea. An easy way to do so is joining the DMZ day tour departing from Seoul, which covers a few places around the border of the North and South Koreas.
