Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Thank you Dennis. Really enjoyed the trip to the DMZ. Your tour was highly entertaining and you are very knowledgeable. I would highly recommend doing this tour with Dennis.

    You get a good view of the tunnel. Requires good physical health though, the walk down and up to the tunnel is steep, and the tunnel itself is low so you'll have to grouch down the whole walk.

    There is a really heavy feeling driving to the DMZ.. once your a few miles close to it your driving thru a village of farmland.. it’s very scenic and nice but we all know it’s far from being nice. You can see warning signs on barbed wire fences along the road. Once you enter the DMZ that’s when you feel like.. “damn this is real” .. the whole experience being on the North side and the South in one of the buildings they “hold meetings” you just really can’t help feel so tense and heavy just even the tension between the guards.. it was all surreal.

    It was definitely an experience I never felt before; to just see how everything was, the atmosphere, the reality of it all.

    This was my biggest regret - I did not manage to visit this place.
    This review is to explain and give tips to future travelers wishing to see this.

    - You will NOT come to this place on the most popular and most sold "Half day DMZ" tour. On that tour you will only see this place from a distance, from the Dora observation deck (see my pics),
    - This is the JSA (Joint security area) - world famous place where's the demarcation line between NK and SK.
    - This is the real thing to see, while the "Half day DMZ tour" is mostly a very touristy experience,
    - This tour costs more than double of the "Half day tour" (around 150 US$ pp),
    - strict rules apply for dress code and behavior and tour can be canceled any time without prior notice,
    - Spaces are very limited and not available every day like on the "Half day tour",
    - Book AS EARLY as you know your plans. I tried to book it a month prior to travel and there were no available spots.

    Here stands a tower in hopes of reunification of the two Koreas. In a way, the tower symbolizes just how far apart they are. A solid, modern structure overlooking a poor, backwards, downtrodden neighbor. This is a good place to see North Korea from.

    Visited it on a cloudy day and nothing much was visible. Liked the place and the view. The triangular river bed and some buildings on the South Korea side was very clearly visible. Overall it's a nice place to visit as part of the DMZ tour.

    C ( 24.01.08 ) - 2nd visit.
    This temple has a large Buddha statue. It is well-parked and takes about 10 minutes to reach the temple. It is a place that goes well with the surrounding scenery and feels calm. In particular, Daewoongjeon Hall is a temple that feels very old and is good for a slow walk.

    Its an hour and half drive from Seoul. Since its still winter the place was not that crowded. Found parking space next to the start of the trail. However, parking space is very limited. Not sure if its enough during the peak season. Washroom, emart etc are nearby the parking area. There are some 100-150 steps at the start of the trail. after that it gets easy. There is bridge, waterfall and then temple. Waterfall was frozen. There is lighting show near waterfall in the evening. Timings were mentioned. But we couldn't wait till night as we had to come back to Seoul. It took us 1.5 hours to come back to the parking lot. Ofcourse we took lot of breaks during this. Overall nice experience. Temple was good.

    This station used to connect South Korea and North Korea but it is more like a museum now. It is part of planned Trans-Asia railway and also symbolize the hope of reunification between the two countries. It has left a deep emotion to me and also the other Koreans.

    There was consisted of 3 tombs and had wide tombs area. The royal tombs had natural atmosphere and dense forest, so there was very good to enjoy walking with smell, wind, view and atmosphere. There was well managed and had parking area. Though there was bored, but there was very good to rest with nature.

    The Paju Jangneung is one of Royal Tombs of the Joseon Dynasty that is 18 tombs in South Korea. This tomb was smaller than another tombs. This tomb was buried Injo who was 16th king in Joseon Dynasyt and his wife. The tomb area was very good to walk and rest with dense forest. The royal tombs in Korea is good park with good nature. I satisfied with good feelings with wind, view, atmosphere.

    Pretty place, and instagrammable.

    I went in June, so roses and some flowers were in bloom.

    I think I came too early, or perhaps because of the covid situation - the area was pretty quiet and a lot of the shops were closed. Do check out the bakery though. I believe they are known for the garlic bread.

    It is a beautiful temple at the entrance of Simhaksan Mountain in Paju, and the huge Buddha statue is impressive. There are many small traces of prayer inside the Buddha statue, and the atmosphere is very stable. It is a well-maintained temple, and it is very good to take a slow walk. I am not a Buddhist, but I feel relaxed and happy every time I go to a temple.

    It is a small temple, and the large Buddha statue behind the temple is impressive. It was quiet because it was a weekday visit, and there were no people. Overall, the large Buddha statue was impressive, although there was no significant difference from other places. The calm and quiet atmosphere of the temple always relaxes the mind.
