Dandong Things to Do: 14 reviews and 28 photos
After visiting Yalu River Park it's time to get on the bridge. Tourists are not allowed on the Friendship Bridge which links Dandong with North Korea for automobile and train transport.
However the Short Bridge is right next to the Friendship Bridge and you can see the remains of this historical monument from when the United States wasn't so friendly.
The Chinese decided to keep their part of the bridge after the Americans bombed it, perhaps keenly aware that they could charge admission in the future by turning it into a tourist attraction after ensuring its safety.
At least there's no fee for the free look through binoculars available for tourists who want a closer glimpse of the North Korean town across the river, Sinuiji.
Directions: Just south of the Friendship Bridge
