      Thank you for your comment Mayuri. Indeed the two are different. I just wanted to portray a few unusual destinations where borders don’t make much sense. I will be uploading some content about the Northeast of India soon too 🙂

    This is a very interesting read. Being an Indian, I only knew about the unusual borders in India. I belong to Jammu and Kashmir and I’m aware of the story behind the disputed border between India, Pakistan and China. This dispute has led to a lot of riots and still remains unresolved. I wasn’t aware of the unusual ones in other countries. The border between UAE and Oman is quite interesting, so is the one between Turkey and Syria.

    UAE and OMAN have a couple of this fantastic borders, even going up to the hills of Hatta you cross the border twice 🙂 in 100 meter distance. There is actual someone standing checking IDs

    Isn’t it amazing the borders we construct for ourselves. I had no idea India had also had ahhh unique borders!

      Absolutely, Jean. While writing this series I came across so many instances of more powerful nations drawing borders according to their interests but caring little or none about the people that live within those borders!

    What a great and interesting post! That border of Turkey and Syria has seen some interesting times I am sure. I have been to the DMZ area in South Korea and that was an eye opener in itself. On the wired walls between the North and the South are thousands and thousands of ribbons, tied by families who will never see their North Korea relatives ever again. I have never been so sad.

      Thank you, Amy! I was thinking of including that border in this article but decided not to because it’s more ‘famous’ compared to the other ones. Have never been there but after reading your comment, I know I must visit! Korea certainly is just one more example of the ‘divide and rule strategy’, conducted by people that didn’t care at all about the people that have to spend their lives inside of those borders. Really sad, indeed.
