Border control is a serious issue in most political territories. Well, with all those attempts at human smuggling, that is kind of expected, right? So to avoid such kinds of things, some countries have rigorous processes in place for those who wish to cross their borders. Some even have heavily guarded walls, complete with massive tanks and armed soldiers.

However, for certain countries, this does not seem to be the case. Some have forests and waterfalls instead of weapons, while others have simple signage instead of walls.

Below is a list of 13 awesome borders from around the world:

1. France and Germany

2. Vietnam and China

3. Switzerland and Italy

The “Golden Triangle” marks the border regions that separate Myanmar, Laos, and Thailand. Though not actually made of gold, it is called such because of its connection with opium production within the area.

8. Haiti and the Dominican Republic
