City of Pines

Relatively relaxed and atmosphertic, the centuries-old city of Kaesong lies near the Demilitarized Zone and the border with South Korea, and has served as an industrial center since being traded to the North in the Korean War.
Kick off your visit on the 1st (Sat): don't miss a visit to Sungkyunkwan University, steep yourself in history at Tomb of King Kongmin, and then take an in-depth tour of Koryo Museum.

To see other places to visit, photos, reviews, and tourist information, go to the Kaesong trip itinerary planner.

Chennai, India to Kaesong is an approximately 21-hour combination of flight and car. You'll lose 3.5 hours traveling from Chennai to Kaesong due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Chennai in October, things will get much colder in Kaesong: highs are around 24°C and lows about 11°C. On the 2nd (Sun), wrap the sightseeing up by early afternoon so you can drive to Pyongyang.
