The concrete wall is presented as a tourist attraction but it is difficult to see much of it despite the telescopes. You get all the usual statistics and anti imperialist stuff but it isn't very interesting.

Must visit! We enjoyed this part of our trip in the DPKR most, from the visit of the museum where the "peace treaty" was signed to the visit of the actual border. Supposedly it is the area in the world with most army around but...More
