Outside Imjingak, there are 12 kinds of tanks and crafts on display that were used during the Korean Conflict.
The 3rd Tunnel
The 3rd Tunnel was discovered on 17 October 1978. It is located 52km from Seoul. It was estimated that it took approximately an hour for 10,000 soldiers to move through the tunnel. When this tunnel was first discovered, North Koreans insisted it was made by South Koreans in a plot to invade North Korea. However, this theory proved eventually to be false.
Dorasan Observatory
Dorasan Observatory is located nearby the 3rd Tunnel. From this observation platform, North Korean military personnel are visible, and so are the highlights of Gaeseong and the Geumgangsan Diamond Mountains.

Dorasan station can be reached by getting on the Gyeongui Line from Seoul Station. Once you reach Munsan Station, you can transfer to a train bound for Imjingang Station. After presenting your identification at Imjingang Station, you can get on a train bound for Dorasan Station.

Bukchon Hanok Village
Surrounded by Gyeongbokgung Palace, Changdeokgung Palace and Jongmyo Shrine, Bukchon Hanok Village is home to hundreds of traditional houses, called hanok, that date back to the Joseon Dynasty. The name Bukchon, which literally translates to "northern village," came about as the neighborhood lies north of two significant Seoul landmarks, Cheonggyecheon Stream and Jongno. Today, many of these hanoks operate as cultural centers, guesthouses, restaurants and tea houses, providing visitors with an opportunity to experience, learn and immerse themselves in traditional Korean culture.
