Kaesong

Sightseeing Museums Historic Sites

City of Pines

Relatively relaxed and atmosphertic, the centuries-old city of Kaesong lies near the Demilitarized Zone and the border with South Korea, and has served as an industrial center since being traded to the North in the Korean War. A visit to Kaesong--a common point of access to North Korea for foreign tourists--usually involves a guided group tour, on which travelers see the main road bisecting the city and leading to the gracefully sloping hills beyond. Attractions in Kaesong include the towering statue of Kim Il-sung, nearby temples and palaces from fallen Korean empires, and the streets, houses, and small museums of the old town, one of the best-preserved historic quarters in Korea. When using our North Korea trip generator, you're building your holiday based on your own interests, visitor reviews, and the informed opinions of our well-traveled writers.
