Dorasan Station, Paju

#7 of 19 in Things to do in Paju
Built in the most northern point in country, Dorasan Station symbolizes the yearning of South Korean people for unification with their brethren. Take a guided tour through the empty, modern station displaying exhibits of wishes and hopes of reconciliation. Displays show how the Berlin Wall fell and Germany re-united. Look for the unification clock displaying how long the process took in Germany, and the other showing the period of separation between Northa and South Korea. The station exudes a hope for a better future, but also acknowledges the bitter present, since all the stores and immigration offices are vacant and military secures the area. Descriptions are thoroughly explained in English. Using our online itinerary creator, Paju attractions like Dorasan Station can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

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.
