It was a very early morning in December, coupled with near zero F temps made this a crowd-free visit. Cost is less than $5 and takes about 15-20 minutes to walk. On a warmer day, one may want to linger and take in the sights....More

This is an awesome place to go to. It’s very nicely done for tourists with English written information to explain what you looking at. It’s also affordable. I would recommend this if you in Dandong. You can see into North Korea and understand the history...More

Built over the Yalu River in 1911 by the Japanese, the area’s first iron bridge was partially destroyed by USA military forces during the Korean War in 1950. It runs parallel and adjacent to the Sino-Korean Friendship Bridge and has been turned into a tourist...More

If you have some time between trains, you should take a stroll to the Friendship bridge (around 15min walking). Quite an interesting site: the Americans bombarded the bridge, and while the Chinese chose to rebuild it, the North Koreans decided to leave it destroyed on...More

I've visited this bridge twice now. On a clear day, it provides an interesting view into North Korea across the Yalu River. Vendors around the entrance sell a wide range of souvenirs.

It's definitely worth the nominal entry fee to view North Korea from this close. We brought our binoculars to get an even closer view. There's little signage on the bridge to tell it's history, so Google it before if you're interested.

As a means of reminding the World that this bridge was bombed during the Korean War it works, but what a wasted of effort to not repair it. Typical of the DPRK in making a statement rather than better itself.
