  • Well maintained. Deserving for the soldiers who laid their lives
  • Great reminder on the adverse consequence of war to humanity. From the first and last UN-sanctioned war, the losses of lives have not ushered in the peace between the North and South Korea.
  • Great nature. Graves of many soldiers who served in the Korean war. Very nice place to see. Good example for us all!
  • Any one who has read about the Korean War should visit this cemetery. It is nicely laid out with plenty of trees and flowers. The visitor centre provides a short video giving the background to this cemetery. Do remember that it is a War Cemetery and not a public park!
  • It's good.
