Yalu River Broken Bridge, Dandong

(4.2/5 based on 150 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.

  • 中秋去了丹東,晚上安排了觀賞斷橋,需要說明的是同一位置有兩個橋,一個是真正的斷橋,已經屬於景點,也就是我們要觀賞的,另一座還可以通的對岸,屬於公路和鐵路一體的。 建議是晚上可以在岸邊看斷橋及照相,景色更佳,屬於距離產生美吧,另外,沿江的商鋪多在買對岸國家的商品:啤酒、鴨蛋、香煙;當然也有韓國的化妝品,也是一大特色。 觀賞斷橋要買票,不值,在岸邊照相及觀賞即可  more »
