Travel Tips for Dandong

View of North Korea from Dandong's Short Bridge

by Confucius

One of my favorite things about Dandong is the view of North Korea across the river. The city of Sinuiji is within shouting distance if you go out to the end of the short bridge and do your best loud rendition of "Arirang" There appears to be an amusement park at the end of the bridge in North Korea but Dandong locals who work at the short bridge gift shop tell me that they have not seen the big wheel turn for a long long time.

The Great Wall of Tiger Mountain

by shuguang

"Hu Shan Great Wall in Summer"

The Great Wall of Tiger Mountain is located in the northeast of Dandong about 15 kilometres away. It faces to North Korean countryside. The Great Wall of Tiger Mountain was built in Ming Dynasty,Chenghua (1469 A.D).

"Yi Bu Kua (one leap over)"

The stone at the foot of The Great Wall of Tiger Mountain tells us that here is the boundary between China and North Korea. However, exactly the boundary is under water in this picture. If not because of lots of rainfall like this, you might try over the boundary within one step. The opposite countryside is belong to North Korea. I tried to find some Noth Korean soldiers then, but failed. I was told that probably they are watching me somewhere.

North Korean cash bought at Dandong antique market

by Confucius

"Look what I got in Dandong!"

This was one of my favorite finds at the Dandong antique market; a 1947 genuine 100 won note from North Korea.
They don't make cash like this anymore with Chinese characters on it.
To see current North Korean currency please go to my North Korea page.
