ABSTRACT
The article presents information on Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) tours offered by operators who sell Korean travel packages. The DMZ itself, which runs for 155 miles from the Sea of Japan to the Yellow Sea, is a band just a few miles wide. The absence of any human beings in this 'no man's land' has curiously created a zone where the wildlife and plant life could function without being disturbed. Koreans believe that many animals that can no longer be found elsewhere in the peninsula are thriving in the DMZ. Panmunjong, a town right on the border between the two countries, is where the armistice ending the war was signed back in 1953. The tours combined with Seoul city tours to form a full-day experience with lunch generally sell in Seoul's hotels for about $100.
