KOREA DAY 8 - SEOUL - 31th Dec 2011 - DMZ and LOTTE WORLD!

The DMZ Tour!
 woke up very early just for this tour that we paid for over there..

DMZ stands for Demilitarized Zone. The Korean Demilitarized Zone (Hangul: 한반도 비무장지대; Hanja: 韓半島非武裝地帶) is a strip of land running across the Korean Peninsula that serves as a buffer zone between North and South Korea which runs along the 38th parallel north. The DMZ cuts the Korean Peninsula roughly in half, crossing the 38th parallel on an angle, with the west end of the DMZ lying south of the parallel and the east end lying north of it.

 It is 250 kilometres (160 miles) long,[1] approximately 4 km (2.5 mi) wide and is the most heavily militarized border in the world.[2][3] The Northern Limit Line, or NLL, is the de facto maritime boundary between North and South Korea in the Yellow Sea and the coastline and islands on both sides of the NLL are also heavily militarized.[4]


here's Michelle at the M! :)



Dorasan Station
Dorasan Station is a railroad station situated on the Gyeongui Line, which once connected North and South Korea and has now been restored. For several years the northernmost stop on the line was Dorasan Station, which is served by Tonggeun commuter trains.
On December 11, 2007, freight trains began traveling north past Dorasan Station into North Korea, taking materials to the Kaesong Industrial Region, and returning with finished goods. It was scheduled to make one 16-kilometer (9.9 mi) trip every weekday.[1]
However, on December 1, 2008, the North Korean government closed the border crossing, after accusing South Korea of a confrontational policy.[2] This coincided with the South Korean legislative election, 2008, and a change to a more conservative government.
Plans to begin regular passenger service across the Imjin River to North Korea have yet to be finalized. However, a tourist visit in January 2010 showed clearly that the station was completely shut to all train travel, and that the station was only open for tourists.

 paid a small amount of money for the tickets and we were allowed to enter INSIDE the train station to the platform and tracks.. :)
