"The DMZ-The last Cold War Border" Kyonggi-do by syetan

Exact Virtual Tourist Location Unknown!!!

So secretive is this border area that even the area open to tourists is unstated on Virtual Tourist-Panmunjom is on the Northern side according to VT, so where are we? The closest I can garner (with help from VT member Olddude and Lonely Planet) is Kyonggi-do, which I believe is a province rather than an exact location.

The tour...

One can take a tour from the southern side, but your freedom is restricted. The biggets issue is the lack of photo taking opportunities-you can only take shots where you are told-which is usually where you don't want to take photos!!! Hence one needs to do the tour yourself. Tourist shots can't do it justice.

The tour takes you to the Freedom Bridge, to Dorasan station (last train stop before North Korea), Odusan Unification Observatory area (military area) the underground tunnels built by the North Koreans (no photos at all...) and of course Camp Bonifas (DMZ area at Panmunjom).
