Great Wall and North Korea proximity
Not much to do in the city but walk along the river.
In a nutshell
Everything I asked for - take the train into town and enjoy a day or two.
When you take a ride across the Yalu River on one of the Chinese speedboats you will be warned not to take photos of the dock workers along the North Korean shore.
They do not appreciate the constant traffic of tourist boats which bring curious spectators within a stone's throw of their vessels.

I'm sure there are plenty of areas where you could do this, but the most famous one is "Yibukua"(one step cross), accessible from Hushan Great Wall. I read lots about this place before I went, but my own North Korean border crossing experience proved far more difficult than I had expected. Visit my Hushan page for the whole story and more details on how to get here!
