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 wounded, military and civilians, and all this for what?

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.

This amazing bridge stands as a reminder of the war that once divided our two nations. Situated over the beautiful Yalu River, the shores of the DPRK are just on the other side which makes for an intriguing view. As you approach what is now the end of the bridge, you will see the twisted metal where US bombs took... More

It is worth the 30 RMB to check out the bridge and see the sights. We also took the boat ride which was fun.

Always wanted to visit North Korea and got a semi-chance whilst on the visit to Dandong. It's a very nice and interesting place... I saw many nice, friendly people, whether was actually nice and the view was equally as good. You can walk along during the day and have interesting views and activities and also have nice views at night... More

We didn't walk out on this but boated past it. There were lots of tourists on the end waving across at North Korea.
