Bombed by the US military during the Korean War in the early 1950s this half bridge is symbolic. The removal of half the bridge prevented the Chinese supporting North Korea in the conflict. See the bridge at night when it is lit with changing colours. The Frienship bridge is right next to this older bridge.

You've just simply got to check this icon out - it's history and what it stands for (and has been left for) are awesome. Also, Dandong, where this is located is a city that is being built for 2.5m people over a period of just 5 years. They're on track to pull it off and that alone is worth seeing.... More
