If you have some time between trains, you should take a stroll to the Friendship bridge (around 15min walking). Quite an interesting site: the Americans bombarded the bridge, and while the Chinese chose to rebuild it, the North Koreans decided to leave it destroyed on their side, to show how harmful the Americans were.

Yalu Jiang Wetland is the top site for migrating shorebirds in the Yellow Sea. In April and early May it hold amazing numbers of birds migrating from the Southern hemisphere on their way to breed in the Arctic. The numbers and diversity are incredible. Access is along the sea wall and once you get used to where to go and when to be there it easy to see large numbers of godwits, knots dunlins and many other species

A very peaceful day trip on wonderfully restored section of the Great Wall!! I don't believe the area is promoted too much for tourism because of the proximity to the North Korean border, but it is well worth the effort if you are in that part of China. It is a nice walk but has some very steep sections with many stairs, so be prepared. The crowds are sparse so you really can enjoy the experience and the many fabulous views.

Walking along the well made path along the river is pleasant. The paths and Gardens are pleasant. Construction and remaking of paths is continuous. Statues and sculptures are worth a look along the way especially the series of sport statues from the local area. Mid to late afternoon small groups are playing musical instruments, singing or having fun. I was offered the opportunity to play an old Chinese instrument, which the locals were very amused about. There are small pockets of Gardens to peep into, a small lookout pavilion, and small plazas.
Opposite, across the road in several places there are small plazas where sports are taking place including dancing, top spinning (a real art) and other juggling. Little Cafes surround this side of the road for a meal. Fish is big on the menu.

The view of the North Korean border across the Yalu River was dreary. At night there are river cruises and one can see the stark difference between the two border cities: Dandong with all its flashy lights and Sinuiju blanketed in darkness. On the next day, my sister and I crossed the border via train from Dandong towards Sinuiju and the contrast between the two countries is so vast. The border crossing was very exciting and personally I felt scared when the North Korean guards and customs officials boarded the train and opened and checked our luggage. They checked and listed our phone brands. They spent a good hour or two inside the train. Truthfully, the written word cannot fully describe the experience.

The Friendship Bridge, right beside the Broken Bridge, not far from the Great Wall of China, illustrates the best approach to international relations. The Broken Bridge was bombed. The Great Wall was built to keep enemies out. The Friendship Bridge encourages trade and some tourism. Chinese people can cross into North Korea but foreigners in China need special visas.

Yanwo wooden structure of the Yalu River Pontoon Railway Pontoon Site is an important passageway where volunteers crossed the river and to transport combat materials during the Korean War. Across the river are the White Horse Mountains and agricultural lands of Korea. Today, all we can see are the remnants of the former wooden bridge, which has been replaced by a steel bridge.
