DMZ (DeMilitarized Zone): Korea

The boarder that divides the Korean Peninsula into South and North Korea is known as the DMZ (DeMilitarized Zone) and it is an area mostly visited by tourists, however, only non-Korean tourists are allowed while Korean citizens are denied to access not only the DMZ, but North Korea as well.

There are a few interesting things in the DMZ area, such as the Observatory which is right in the limits between South Korea and North Korea; where tourists can get a "glimpse" of the life in North Korea, though big open spaces of dry land is mostly what you can see, really.

In one of the metal fences, there are a lot of ribbons known as Peace Ribbons, as they are put up there to wish for unification.
