Inspirock Rating:
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.

  • 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. 
  • This bridge is probably the most important site in Dandong. Its link to North Korea is the reason for the existence of this city. Good anti-American propaganda can be seen on the bridge. 
  • 從小聽聞抗美援朝 想像當年有兩百萬人 從鴨綠江上的許多座橋樑同時被送往戰場 或葬身異域 或羈留未歸 或在若干年後攜妻帶子重返故里 人世悲歡 斷橋為做見證
