DMZ, Paju

4.2
#1 of 43 in Historic Sites in Gyeonggi-do
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. Arrange your visit to DMZ and discover more family-friendly attractions in Paju using our Paju holiday planner.

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.
