The DMZ: Korean Demilitarized Zone is a strip of land running between North Korea and South Korea

The DMZ between North and South Korea

Map DMZ KoreaWhile in Seoul on business, my local partners took me for a day trip to the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) at Panmunjom between South and North Korea. It’s the most militarized border on earth and the world’s most dangerous border.

Centred on the DMZ is the Military Demarcation Line (MDL).  This is the actual political border.

Adjacent is the Joint Security Area (JSA) and related gift shops (yes).  It’s the Disneyland of politics.
