Demilitarized Zone

Demilitarized Zone was the 5 kilometers wide area on the both sides of the Ben Hai river and due to war circumstances, the most militarized area of the world. Ben Hai river became a demarcation line in the period from 1954 to 1975, dividing the country into North Vietnam or the Democratic Republic of Vietnam and South Vietnam or the Republic of Vietnam.
