Day Trip to the DMZ

Posted on Sun, May 18, 2014 @ 08:25 PM

Sometimes it is good to escape the Daejeon bubble and head up to Seoul. But last weekend, I decided to go even farther north. In my case, I literally went as far north as I can possibly go. Yes, that’s right, I am talking about the Korean DMZ. For all of you who do not know, that stands for the De-Militarized Zone, which essentially is the border between North and South Korea, established after the Korean War cease-fire in 1953.

An English Teacher in Korea Visits the DMZ

Posted on Mon, Oct 29, 2012 @ 11:03 AM

One of the must-visit places for English teachers in Korea is the DMZ (Demilitarized Zone).. It is an experience that introduces you to the only country that is still divided in the world today. The best part about this tour is the opportunity to visit one of the four discovered underground tunnels that were dug by North Korea to target Seoul in a secret attack. Of course the thought of a war still freaks most of us out, but we are pretty persuaded that there will not be a war (an extremely slight chance).

My Adventure North as a Teacher in Korea

Posted on Mon, Jun 11, 2012 @ 11:54 AM

Last weekend I managed to cross off a major item from my While Teaching in Korea Bucket List- I went to the DMZ.  For those of you who don’t know, the DMZ (demilitarized zone) is the four kilometer area of land that divides North and South Korea and is one of the most fortified boarders in the world.

With the DMZ being such a major tourist attraction for visitors to Korea, there are a variety of different groups that you can sign up to go with.  In my opinion it really doesn’t matter what one you choose because they all offer about the same thing.  When you book it, they will ask you for your passport number and will give you a few instructions on what you can/ cannot wear on the tour.  I would just recommend that you try to book it a few weeks in advanced and try to get on one that goes to Panmunjom.
