Travel: Korea - General

School terms keep kids in school and parents sane. Holidays can be boring to kids if they are left alone. Discuss vacation ideas and how to make good use of the free time for both children and adults.

Yeah, no issue with JSA dress code cos y'all covered up decently!

Besides crossing 38th parallel on foot up to the spot where the SK soldier stands at the exit (inside the blue building), you will also sit in the coach that drives you over to NK JSA territory.

The coach will then loop back to SK and stop at Bridge of No Return and Axe Murder Incident spot which are both within SK JSA territory.

There was a souvenir shop (I can't remember where that was) which sold NK products & groceries (some from Kaesong Industrial Park and Unification Village), dismantled barbed wires (in boxes), NK communist stamps, first day covers and NK numismatic (notes & coins) commemorative sets. They were sold in USD. I bought caps and tees. I loved that shop!

If go to JSA from NK, then you'll miss the tunnel (one of the tunnels) that NK dug to attack SK.

there are a number of reasons why one should visit Korea. It's very dynamic in its culture, people, and language. First and foremost, i think the culture is really what makes Korea what it is. you won't find anything like it anywhere else.

Need advise , booking ktx from Seoul to Busan, if I take their saver (2-5) people travelling it will be 111k each person but if I buy seperately child ticket is only 61k, anyone tried buying separately for children. Which saved quite a bit from 61k to 111k, will that caused searing arrangement issues or I can request to issues ticket together when changing ticket ?
