Full description
After your hotel pickup, head to Paju where the Korean Demilitarized Zone is located. Your first stop is Imjingak Pavilion and the Unification Bridge where you can see exhibits and an old train which explains the tragic history of the Korean war. Within the area, the tour guide will also share where you can find people's hopes for peace in each area.

In order to have a deep-dive into history, watch a brief presentation regarding the war and how South and North Korea were separated. You will go down to the 3rd Infiltration Tunnel to see the secret passage that North Korea built to invade South Korea, with your own eyes. The last stop of the DMZ tour is Dora Observatory and Doran Station. At the observatory, you can see North Korean villages and people with a telescope. Dorasan Station is an inactive train station which will open finally on the day of the two Koreas' unification.

When you are finished with visiting all the places of the DMZ, grab a Korean-style lunch and head to Paju Premium Outlet to enjoy some shopping. The outlet is very popular with locals who purchase well-known brand goods with discounts. Head back to your hotel in Seoul by approximately 5pm.
