DMZ, Paju

Take a monorail to explore a blame-game tunnel of DMZ, the only official venue for meetings between the ROK and DPRK. With the U.S. overseeing the peace process in the Cold War-divided peninsula, the zone gives you a rare opportunity to tour a military administration line amid heavy security. Official English or Japanese-speaking guides accompany your tour, showing you the venue where the 1953 armistice was signed. Observe a change of joint guards and use a telescope to see the northern part of the divided Korea. You must register at least four days prior to the tour, and for some countries a scanned color copy of your passport is required. Certain nationals may be banned from entry--check before you go. For travelers who use our international travel planner, Paju holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the DMZ and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • Silent war on television to see or to hear him on the radio is cruel and unreal. And it is only a time there and sees North Korea up close, it is a still unwirlicher. That the people who are now only 10 km further away, suffer and be suppressed, is incredible. We have booked a tour in advance and had been afraid that the tour would be cancelled due to the new rising conflicts, but we would by our bus and one great English speaking travel escort picked. The Organization was great! We did a long tour to the DMZ, the tunnels, the train station and a lunch. Can we really only recommend! On the clothes OK Please, they were doing really strict. But our tour guide had thought of everything and had another change of clothes for everyone who had closed-toe shoes or shorts on. I can only recommend the tour as long as it is still possible.

Where to stay in Paju

Paju offers a large amount of hotels for its visitors, with all brackets represented across the diverse urban area. Look close to the river for some of the spa and retreat options, along with hotels and guesthouses boasting luxury rooms and river views. In the urban center to the north, you'll find a good deal more standard hotels and budget options. Still, many more people head to Paju to see its sights (primarily the DMZ) on a day trip from Seoul.
