Yalu River Broken Bridge, Dandong
(4.2/5 based on 140+ reviews on the web)
Visit Yalu River Broken Bridge to examine shell holes, twisted metal, snapped iron, and other damage left by the Korean War bombing. Formerly a major link between China and North Korea, the bridge was destroyed by American armed forces and retains only four of its original dozen arches. See the monuments--such as a bust of Mao Zedong's son who crossed the bridge to join the war--scattered around the site. The bridge runs parallel to the China–North Korea Friendship Bridge, which was also bombed in the war but later repaired. Get on a tourist boat to get closer to the North-Korean shore and see the bridge from the water.

  • 来到丹东,我的心情格外的不平静,我的奶奶当年就是参加抗美援朝了的一个志愿军,她当年就是从这儿过的中朝边境,这让我这个当孙子非常感到骄傲 
  • 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...  more »
  • 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.
