This place was definitely the highlight of our trip to Dandong. The price is great for what you're seeing. You get super up close to North Korea and also get a glimpse of the propaganda seen at that time while on the bridge. As two...More

I'm no history buff, but I'm enough of a geek that I already knew a little bit about the bridges in Dandong (thanks to the Mercenaries video game, but I digress). Dandong was one of a range of destinations suggested by my wife for a...More

There is rich symbolism in the bridge stopping halfway with pylons standing like sentinels the rest of the way to the DPRK side. You can walk out to the middle of the river from the Chinese side to loud music and lots of Chinese flags...More

There is nothing much to actually see. I'm sure you hav seen a broken bridge before. It's the history of the Korean war that makes you think about 3 years of terrible war, millions of people killed or wounded, military and civilians, and all this...More
