You will pass through this arch when traveling south towards the demilitarized zone in the south. The arch is enormous and very important for the Koreans. You have a great view through the gate overlooking the city as well

It is on the main road from Pyongyang to Kaesong and DMZ (the border with South Korea). Usually your tour would stop here for half a minute for visitors to take pictures. It is nice for pictures but nothing much else to see around here.

An impressively massive monument with sombre undertones just outside Pyongyang and straddling the Reunification Highway between Pyongyang, Kaesong and the DMZ. We saw it twice on the way to and back from the DMZ. The monument comprises of two statues of ladies in traditional dress...More

You will most likely stop there on your way to the DMZ. Notice that the cars have to go around the monument - special traffic rules in DPRK.

Fittingly visited on our way back from the DMZ, the Arch of Reunification appropriately straddles the Reunification Highway that connects Pyongyang to Panmunjom. The arch consists of two women in traditional Korean dress holding a sphere of a reunified nation. The sphere, of course, is...More
