Visiting the Broken Bridge was completely worth it. For ¥30 per person you can walk all the way to the end of the bridge that still remains. It was like stepping into the more recent past. For us there was an bit of awkwardness in the air, being that we were the only Americans around. But that was all probably... 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 and stare across to the other side with a disused fairground, including an old ferris...

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 for what?

The bridge represents an important time and place of the Korean War. Another interesting perspective of history. Also, walking out on the bridge gives a great view of North Korea and Dandong.

This bridge is probably the most important site in Dandong. Its link to North Korea is the reason for the existence of this city. Good anti-American propaganda can be seen on the bridge.

This amazing bridge stands as a reminder of the war that once divided our two nations. Situated over the beautiful Yalu River, the shores of the DPRK are just on the other side which makes for an intriguing view. As you approach what is now the end of the bridge, you will see the twisted metal where US bombs took... More

It is worth the 30 RMB to check out the bridge and see the sights. We also took the boat ride which was fun.

Very nice to know more about north korea and china friendship bridge was bombed by usa during war time. You can see the different between 2 countries on the bridge view one side full of building and on the other side is nothing! It is worth to visit if there is a chance!

Thank Rocky A
