Descrizione

From Seoul, set off for a trip to the Joint Security Area and visit the conference room where the armistice to put an end to the Korean war was signed.

A shuttle will pick you up directly from your hotel in Seoul to take you to the group departure point.

You will be driven by bus to the demilitarised zone. You will discover Imjingak Park and its numerous buildings in memory of the victims of the Korean war.

After lunch, you will pass through identity control to rejoin Camps Bonifas where you will be briefed.

Your tour of the UN-controlled Joint Security Area will start by the visit to the House of Freedom which houses the liaison office between South Korea and North Korea. You will then enter the conference room where the negotiations took place which led to the signing of an armistice in July 1953. This is the only place in the demilitarised zone where you can cross the demarcation zone and set foot in North Korea. Your guide will also explain the history of the Bridge of No Return used in 1953 and 1968 to exchange prisoners.

Finally, the shuttle will take you back to Seoul and drop you off in front of the Lotte Hotel.
