Concrete Wall, Kaesong

4.5
#5 of 20 in Sightseeing in North Korea
Landmark Tourist Spot
Marking the border between two countries, Concrete Wall is most often seen through a telescope. Climb to the watchtower to see the wall and the structure of the border. Visit the museum, where two countries signed armistice agreement (the document lies under the glass and is well-preserved), or head to the blue huts where negotiations take place. You may get the feeling of standing in the intense war zone, but the site is said to be completely safe. On site you can buy souvenirs in the gift shop.

  • Visit very interesting and not to be missed if you are traveling to North Korea. Journey from Pyongyang is rather long and the road has many potholes, landscape is varied and is changing much as you advance towards the South, you can see a couple of towns along the way and many agricultural areas of crops, even in the hills. Arriving at the place there are leaflets concerning the reunification of the two Koreas, first access by a souvenir shop.. .with more variety than other previously visited, then do some shopping (only here find souvenirs from the DMZ) and hoping to make some time to distance to different groups of tourists... raisins to a small room where they make a brief historical introduction of the war with its version. Starting the bus to the area itself as two North Korean soldiers accompany you and after passing a routine check practically without any revision, you get to constructions which are used for meetings and reporting in more detail the history of the DMZ. There are many historical photographs and data of the regime... After this stop arrive in the main building and from the rooftop are the celestial houses where it passes the dividing line between the two in which held some meetings and signed treaties. The main building of the South Korean side also looks... they are a few meters of separation. You are allowed to take photos even with the North Korean military with which you can chat with the help of guides.
