Kaesong Things to Do: 50 reviews and 153 photos


When you go to Panmunjom and the DMZ from Kaesong, you'll use the Reunification Highway again which just fizzles out into a small compound where the road just simply ends. Along the way you'll pass by a series of large concrete pillars which are about 20-30ft high on both sides of the road. Each one is believed to contain dynamite at the base which can be detonated if North Korea is invaded from the South.
