Tour Through Korea

Following up on our visit to Japan last week, we now move on to the neighbouring country of Korea. Divided  in 1948 into a communist North Korea and democratic South Korea, the two Korean regimes can boast, possibly, the most fortified border in the world. For many obvious reasons, these two countries present very contrasting systems. Check out our gallery.
