The DMZ : Korean Demilitarized Zone

Believe it or not the DMZ is a major tourist attraction! everyone wants to take a peek in to North Korea! 

In theory North and South Korea are still in cold war as no peace treaty was signed! 

One of the main attractions is to go down one of the tunnels dig by North Korea. Of course they say they didn´t do it.... but guess what! now that South Korea is making money with the tourists visiting the tunnel, North Korea wants a share as well!!! :P incredible! 

This was the best shot we could take of North Korea :P you can only take a picture behind a yellow line very well policed! 

Although the relations between North and South Korean are not the best, South Korea has a train station in the DMZ that goes directly to Pyongyang! It is quite a modern station kept crystal clean and ready for the moment when the DMZ will not be needed anylonger,

Due to this tense relation between the two Korea's, men in South Korea have to do two years in the military service. Serving in the DMZ goes from patrolling the DMZ area.... to.... taking pictures with Chinese tourists! :P
