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.

This place was definitely the highlight of our trip to Dandong. The price is great for what you're seeing. You get super up close to North Korea and also get a glimpse of the propaganda seen at that time while on the bridge. As two...More

I'm no history buff, but I'm enough of a geek that I already knew a little bit about the bridges in Dandong (thanks to the Mercenaries video game, but I digress). Dandong was one of a range of destinations suggested by my wife for a...More

This bridge, built by the Japanese in 1905 was destroyed in the Korean War. The Chinese restored their side of the bridge, but the North Korean half is still missing. As a result, you can now walk out halfway across the Yalu river and feel...More

Really worth spending an hour walking the bridge; you feel very close to the DPRK. Really great experience.
