Vietnam's Demilitarized Zone (DMZ), is the area around the former border between North and South Vietnam. Historically it was a narrow band of terrain extending from the Laos border to the coast, 5 km on either side of the Ben Hai River, roughly on the 17th parallel north latitude.
During Vietnam-American War, the Ben Hai River was demarcation line between North and South Vietnam. This make a Demilitarized Zone of 5km each from the river. However during the war, the Southern area of DMZ was one of the most bloodiest battlefield.
