Malaysian visits the Korean Demilitarised Zone while studying in Seoul

The MAC Building is in the South Korean side.

While doing an engineering course at Hanyang University in Seoul, South Korea some years ago, I had a few opportunities to visit interesting places during the semester breaks. One of the places that had the most lasting impression on me was the Panmunjom, located within the Korean Demilitarised Zone (DMZ).

Panmunjom was where armistice was reached during the Korean Civil War in 1953. I visited this place twice, first with friends and then again with my mother and eldest sister who came to Korea for my graduation.
