Kaesong

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.
Kaesong is known for museums and historic sites. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: make a trip to Demilitarized Zone, take an in-depth tour of Koryo Museum, steep yourself in history at Tomb of King Kongmin, and snap pictures at Sonjuk Bridge.

To find other places to visit, photos, reviews, and tourist information, you can read our Kaesong trip itinerary planning site.

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to Kaesong is an approximately 21-hour combination of flight and car. You can also drive. The time zone difference moving from Malaysia Time (MYT) to Korean Standard Time (KST) is 1 hour. Expect little chillier temperatures when traveling from Kuala Lumpur in September; daily highs in Kaesong reach 30°C and lows reach 19°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 22nd (Tue) so you can go by car to Pyongyang.
