Photos: North Korean harvest, new homes as seen from South’s new border lookout

Tourists in bustling South Korea can zoom in on the comparatively quiet life in villages across the border

Just a few kilometers away from bustling streets, rising apartment towers and zigzagging harvesting machines in South Korea, North Koreans were seen farming by hand and strolling between quiet villages. 

The Aegibong Peace Ecopark, an initiative of the South Korean city of Gimpo to replace an older viewing platform, opened to the public earlier this month after years of construction delays, offering clear views of North Koreans going about their daily lives in Kaesong city's Panmun district.
