  • The river cuts through the centre of Pyongyang and has many bridges. In December the river was totally frozen and had a layer of snow. River craft were frozen into the river.  more »
  • From the windows of our hotel, from bounce, residents do their gymnastics facing the River on a haunting music written by their leader. Little, if any, river traffic, the only ships seen are a boat-restaurant (impossible to know if it is active) and a kind of junk. We have seen a human chain draw water with all sorts of containers and then go to water the trees in the city. The engineers are trying a of the culture on the water. The food of the nation remains a problem.

  • Maybe, there are organizations that follow as a tourist resort. Is moderately paced, I would say that you realize that this river because of the frequent crossings by bridges. Needed to cross the city nothing else

  • like i haven't been here but it looks cool and i want to bring up the reviews
  • Taedong River is the large river which runs through the centre of Pyongyang. Capital city of DPR Korea. All the more surprising that the water is so clean you could drink it, I did. The outlook is calm and it is the place locals go to paddle around in rowing boats, take wedding photos, relax, walk dogs. I even saw someone waterskiing. Don't believe all the propaganda. Any city would be proud to have a river this clean and this beautiful.
  • A nice place that would hide from guards
