Full description
Meet up with your tour guide at the meeting point and depart to Imjingak in the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ). Imjingak, located 7 KM from the Military Demarcation Line, is a park that was built in 1972 with the hope that someday unification would be possible. It is surrounded by the Unification Park and North Korea Center. 

After visiting Imjingak, head to Mangbaedan, a memorial where people from South Korea perform ancestral rites. Every New Year’s Day and Chuseok (Korea’s Thanksgiving), they bow toward their hometowns in the North as a sign of respect. 

Then, head to the Bridge of the Freedom, which South Koreans crossed when they came back to their own country from North Korea. Also see the Gyeongui Train Line, which was destroyed during the Korean War in 1950. 

The next stop is Paju Provence Village, which is very close to North Korea. Visit Heyri Art Valley and the Forest of Wisdom before heading a place in the village where you can see over the border into North Korea.

The last stop of the tour is the Statue of Choi Kyu-shik, a police officer who was killed by a bullet shot by the armed forces at the time of the North Korean spy invasion. Then, return to Seoul.
