We eagerly anticipated our visit to Panmunjom where we would step into North Korea, and were tantalized by the Dora Observatory where we got our first glimpse into the most isolated country in the world. But we had no anticipation, nor expectations for our tour...More

Simply put, this station is symbolic of South Korea's aspirations to be united with the North. The train station is no longer active, but the vision is to one day be a link to the North. Really not much to see other than historic pictures...More

This station is symbolic of a people’s aspirations to be united and is the most visible reflection of a people’s vision. Take pictures before the station is operational!!

The defunct train station of Dorasan allows you to walk its halls and take iconic photos with signs saying “To Pyeongyang.” On one side of the actual outdoor train platform itself there are a collection of exhibits and monuments comparing the division of Germany and...More

The Doransan Station certainly has an interesting history and hopeful purpose but overll there isn't much to see. Yes, there is a sign that indicates the line to Pyeongyang but it's a simple train station. Hopefully, in the near future, the station can become more...More

I found it slightly spooky that an entire train line and station has been built in the hope of unification. For the moment it is just a ghost town. Hardly anything going on here, apart from your visits. The station is very impressive, clean and...More
