Korean Demilitarized Zone

More Foreigners Visit Inter-Korean Border

Despite intensifying threats from North Korea, the number of foreign tourists visiting the heavily-armed border separating the two Koreas keeps growing.

According to travel agency Cosmojin on Monday, the number of foreign visitors to the Demilitarized Zone so far this month rose more than 30 percent compared to March. It said phone inquiries for tours to the border also increased almost 50 percent.

Camp Greaves Shapes Up as DMZ Tourist Draw

Gyeonggi Governor Kim Moon-soo has promised to make efforts to turn Camp Greaves into a global hotspot for tourists by preserving and remodeling it.

The former U.S. military compound is located near the demilitarized zone that separates the two Koreas. It comprises accommodation and recreational facilities that were formerly used by U.S. forces.

The number of foreigners who visit the truce village of Panmunjom, also on the DMZ, is increasing steadily each year. As many Chinese come to visit the graves of soldiers from the country who lost their lives during the 1950-53 Korean War, Camp Greaves is expected to become a big draw card once it has been remodeled with more comfortable facilities.

This reminds me of Israelis visiting Syria's border to watch the civil war via binoculars. Along the DMZ are a handful of small villages protected by the UN who just happened to be located on the DMZ at the time of it's creation so they are reaping the benefits. I find this funny because not long ago NoKo sent out a warning to all foreigners to leave SoKo
