Dandong Border City Day Tour
Dandong lies in the southeast of Liaoning Province in China, separated from the North Korea by the exotic Yalu River. Situated in China's frontier area, Dandong has always been a vital fortress of great military importance since extremely long ago. Dandong has therefore had a dynamic history because of its strategic location for the northeast's rich natural resources and because of its convenient access to the ocean. It is designated as a major export production centre for the province, and is a port city connected by rail with Shenyang and Sinuiju. A significant amount of trade with North Korea flows through the city.
