A visit to the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) in South Korea


I want to go to the DMZ if I’m in South Korea! I have said that for years! It’s a weird and special place and it seemed to me to be quite an experience to be there. The DMZ is the buffer zone between North and South Korea, 4 km wide and 248 km long. It’s a kind of no-man’s country where the UN soldiers stand guard. In general, it is fairly quiet at the border.
