TOURIST ATTRACTIONS IN KAESONG

Kaesong (Western Part)

Situated in the mid-western part of Korea, 160 km south of Pyongyang, Kaesong is a beautiful city with a long history. It was the old capital of Koryo (918-1392), the first unified state of Korea, for nearly 500 years. The town is on the Military Demarcation Line which divides the Korean peninsula into two parts, drawn by foreign forces.

Kaesong is also home to Koryo Insam, a world-famous medicinal herb. The area of Kaesong is a singular tourist destination. In the area there are Panmunjom and concrete wall as well as many places of historical interest and scenic spots. Visits to them will offer a glimpse of the time-honoured history and developed culture of Korea and the tragedy of the divided Korean nation.

In Juche 102 (2013), 12 historical relics and remains in Kaesong were registered as the World Heritage Sites.

You can visit Kaesong by train or by car and it is better to travel along the Pyongyang-Kaesong highway. Halfway between Pyongyang and Kaesong there is Sugok Tea House for travelers and a few tunnels further on, you can see fossil footprints of a dinosaur 180 million years ago.
