Learn more about the history of the conflict between North and South Korea in this educational tour to the popular Korean Demilitarized Zone (DMZ). Go deep into the DMZ, just a few miles from North Korean territory, to discover more about Korea's turbulent past. Despite its name, the DMZ is the area between two of the most heavily armed frontiers on earth. This no man's land is remarkably safe for tourists (and even world leaders) to visit, but is only accessible via group tours. Your guide will relate the fascinating history surrounding the area as you visit historical sites: war relics at Imjingak Park, the Freedom Bridge, across which almost 13,000 Korean POWs walked to freedom, the Third Infiltration Tunnel (an invasion route built beneath the border), the DMZ exhibition theater, and views of North Korea from atop the Dora Observatory. During lunch time, enjoy a classic bulgogi dish to fill your bellies.
