(Travel Gazette) TAKING a day-trip to Koreas heavily fortified Demilitarized Zone is the most popular tour destination among foreign visitors, reports the Korea Herald.
The Korean Demilitarized Zone is a strip of land running across the Korean Peninsula. It is established by the provisions of the Korean Armistice Agreement to serve as a buffer zone between the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (North Korea) and the Republic of Korea (South Korea).
The Korea Tourism Organization says a half-day visit to the DMZ area was the most popular tour picked by foreigners through the travel website Viator.
The second most popular tourism item was a small nighttime group tour of the capital city.
