The Third Tunnel of Aggression is one of four known tunnels situated within the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) separating North Korea and South Korea. Located more than 70 meters beneath the ground and at 265 meters long, the Third Tunnel of Aggression is a highlight of any DMZ tour.
The tunnel was built by North Korea in the 1970s, who initially denied its existence when South Korea discovered it later. The North were then said to have claimed it was a coal mine, before it was revealed that they had dug the tunnel in order to launch a surprise attack on Seoul. The South eventually took control of the tunnel, blocking off the demarcation line with the North via concrete barricades.
Although the Third Tunnel is now very much a tourist site (there’s even a gift shop near its entrance), it still remains guarded and taking photography is forbidden once inside. The tunnel passage is dark, long, and narrow, and it’s a steep incline to access it.
The Paju Premium Outlets is a luxury shopping complex in Paju to the northwest of Seoul. This three-storey building is home to 220 outlet stores, with a mixture of international and designer brand names, plus local retailers.
The complex is known for its discounted products, with everything from designer clothing and accessories to homeware and gifts offered at a reduced cost – sometimes with up to 70% off the usual retail price. There is also a large food court on the top level, along with a number of restaurants and cafes scattered across the two remaining floors.
