Welcome to Dāndōng

For most visitors to Dāndōng, this is as close as they will get to the DPRK. While you can’t see much, the contrast between Dāndōng’s lively, built-up riverfront and the desolate stretch of land on the other side of the Yālù River speaks volumes about the dire state of the North Korean economy and the restrictions under which its people live.
