Bản dịch - Translation

Khu phi quân sự giữa Bắc và Nam Hàn là vùng biên giới được củng cố kỹ càng nhất trên thế giới.

Nhưng Nam Hàn đang có kế hoạch sẽ mở một địa điểm du lịch sinh thái dọc biên giới giáp với Bắc Hàn.

Vùng đệm này là nơi được áp dụng các giới hạn chặt chẽ trong suốt hơn 50 năm qua, và đã tạo ra một khu bảo tồn thiên nhiên không bị bàn tay con người động tới.

Họ hy vọng sẽ tạo ra một thương hiệu mới cho khu vực này như một nơi chốn của hòa bình chứ không phải chiến tranh.
