Panmunjom, Paju
(4.5/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web)
Visit Panmunjom, the only accessible destination in the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ), the Cold War's last frontier. The deserted village now features the Joint Security Area (JSA), where the two governments on the Korean Peninsula occasionally meet for talks, and soldiers stare across the border at each other. The setting for the signing of the 1953 truce between the two countries, the JSA remains a dangerous place, with the two countries still officially at war. As a place of historical intrigue and a contemporary anomaly, the site leaves an impression long after you've left. Book your trip with a tour company well in advance, and pay close attention to their strict dress codes and rules about behavior. By using our Paju holiday planner, you can arrange your visit to Panmunjom and other attractions in Paju.

  • So this place is supposed to be "tense" and stuff, but honestly, to me the whole thing felt contrived and staged. We first went for a briefing at Camp Bonifas, where they build up this whole idea that...  more »
