Subsequently, one may also ask, is it safe to visit the DMZ?

Visiting the DMZ is actually very safe as long as you follow all the rules. DMZ is an active war zone. All soldiers along the DMZ carry 5.56 mm NATO ammo and rifles.

Also, is the DMZ in Korea considered a combat zone? By all accounts, Korea's DMZ is about as close to a combat zone as there is in the world today for American ground units. But because the shooting has stopped for now, veterans of the "Z," as it is known in GI jargon, do not qualify for a campaign medal.

In this way, is it worth going to the DMZ in Korea?

If you can arrange a visit to Panmunjeom, it is definitely worth it. Many countries have palaces, Buddhist temples, mountains, but only one has the most heavily armed DMZ in the world. Note: David Gong suggested an edit. Clearly 2 countries are needed for a DMZ but only one allows visits.
