Any of you guys been to the Korean DMZ? Is it worth the money and time? I only have 4 days in Korea so my time's pretty limited, feel free to provide your opinions and personal accounts.

I'm stuck between that, a K-pop concert (IU), and going to a Kissbang. Thanks.

DMZ sounds a bit boring, its not like you get to see much.

K-pop sounds more fun.

I have no Idea what kissbang is though (,a prostitute?)

Sort of. $40 USD to make out and feel up a university-age Korean girl.

What kind of scam is this shit?

Kind of like a brothel, but just for making out.

that is so fucking beta it blows my mind. You are paying for getting to what 1st or second base?

DMZ is worth it if you're interested in that sort of thing. The cool thing is that I've been there from both Koreas, and the experience was quite different for each.

- RoK is extra careful, makes everyone sign a waiver, strict rules on how to behave and dress
- DPRK's story about the axe incident is spotty almost to the point of being funny, on the other hand it was much more relaxed and free to be a visitor on that side

Thus sounds like total BS. Korean girls do not sell it cheap.

Which one did you do first? Did you have trouble getting into the other Korea after visiting the first one?
Anonymous 05/02/14(Fri)20:07 UTC+1 No.845582 Report

I did DPRK about 3 years before RoK. There was nothing in my passport indicating I've ever been to DPRK (no stamps, they only had a little piece of paper they took away when leaving). I doubt anyone would have cared though. In DPRK, we had some people in our group who lived in RoK (but Europeans, not Koreans).

I don't think it would be an issue with either side.

DMZ is worth it, it's one full day but you see the tunnels the north koreans made to get to Seoul, hear some interesting stories, see the bridge of no return (attached picture) and get to go into the DMZ huts and technically set foot in the DPRK (kinda).

I'm not a fan of KPOP though, if thats your thing then maybe you'd prefer that. I see the DMZ as a thing that may not last forever so it's interesting to see it first hand.

wtf dont go to the kissbang.... at least fuck a hooker... And dmz is overpriced and boring, go out in hongdae gangnam or itaewon, go to jjimjjilbang, go see the war museum, take cooking classes, eat a lot of food

How much do you pay for cuddles and handholds?

Yeah that's what I was thinking too, last vestige of the Cold War and all. I probably won't be back for a while either and maybe the Koreas will have gotten their shit together and made peace by then. Thanks for your input though.

Is it? Care to elaborate why it's overpriced and boring? I'm willing to hear your argument. Also, kissbang is actually pretty simple, just pay and do the deed. I considering it as an option just because why not, wouldn't be able to find anything like it in the US. More info:

I went there winter of 2012. Took a full day.

It was very austere and depressing, its a
guided tour and your movement is very limited. Also sort of surreal in how it had become a tourist attraction.
They do give you some interesting historical context, although its kind of propoganda-y
Going in the winter wasn't such a great idea since its up in the mountains and very cold.

You are able to cross the military demarcation line and technically enter North Korea, which is cool.

The whole experience left me feeling sad more than anything. When we were at the actual JSA directly across from North Korea there was a soldier on the other side looking at us with binoculars while we took pictures. The fact that fact that we were looking at someone who's life was probably incredibly shitty and couldn't do anything to communicate was especially disheartening.

I'm assuming you went with the USO tour? It is kind of surreal to be allowed to happily take pictures in a place that's actually so grim though.
Anonymous 05/03/14(Sat)18:26 UTC+1 No.845862 Report

not USO it was just a tour company. I went while i was visiting family in Seoul (i'm half Korean.) Probably the same one as >>845675 since it was the same itinerary. They did english and japanese language tours iirc.
The most surreal part was that at the parts of the tour outside of the JSA where security was less intense, there were just family's on day trips with small kids and stuff.

Imma do the DMZ tour myself from the North Korean side.
I also am interested in Korea in general, this also includes K-Pop, North Korean Music, the DMZ.

I decided to book a trip to North Korea this summer that at least included some things I really wanna see, which is the DMZ.

If I was standing in your shoes at this moment, I would go to the DMZ, but this is always some personal opinion.

I stayed 15 days in Seoul and the DMZ was one of my priorities. It was well worth. Sure you must be interested in the history itself to fully enjoy it. If you do, you will be very happy of your decision.
Anonymous 05/05/14(Mon)23:34 UTC+1 No.846679 Report

Honestly no

I got it for free because no one actually asked me for money in the guide bus so i cant complain.

But its not worth the few hours being there if time is a factor.

You get to look at north korea and look at a bunch of tunnels and bunkers. That's it.
Anonymous 05/08/14(Thu)04:18 UTC+1 No.847438 Report


Well, IU concert filled up in 5 minutes last night and the seat that I would've gotten didn't look too appealing so I'll probably go for the DMZ.

And pls stay safe Lemon

I will be alright (:
I have no weird plans in mind. People always think you will die if you go to the DPRK. But if you would go to Saudi-Arabia and insult the prophet Muhammed or criticize the Quran, they will hang you too. It is kinda the same thing. As long as you respect their way of life, you will most likely be fine.

Most people who were detained there were usually Christians who were spreading words of Jesus Christ and (pages of) The Bible. You are pretty much asking for it if you plan to do so there, with all respect said though.
