Two hour trip by auto from Yanji. The scenery of the country side was beautiful and the people were friendly, but curious. We continued north until we reached the Russia/China/North Korean Borders. That was worth the trip.

Two bridges link Tumen with North Korea there are boat rides on the river to get a closer view of North Korea. Near the Railway Bridge is a road that goes up the hill,... More
