Kaesong Overview

Kaesong is a city in North Hwanghae province, in the Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea. Kaesong was once the former capital of the Koryeo dynasty which lasted from 918 CE until 1392 CE. Originally famous for its Ginseng production, Kaesong is now home to the Kaesong Industrial Complex, which employs nearly 700,000 people. It was set up with the help from South Korea.

Main tourist attractions to the city are the Koryo Museum, several tombs of kings who lived in the Koryo dynasty and of course the Panmunjom and DMZ, the border with South Korea.
