Dandong is the largest border city in China. The Yalu River, where the crystal water shines in the sun, is the name card of the city. The Youyi Bridge (Youyi means friendship in English), which represents the relationship between China and the DPRK, spans the river, magnificent and steady. If you walk along the river, you can enjoy the picturesque scenery in the urban garden and along Binjiang Avenue. It impresses the soul to gaze over the landscape of the DPRK. In the suburbs, lush mountains and crystal water embrace Shuifeng Lake. The Great Wall, which was built on the mountains by the river, starts from Tiger Mountain in the east.

The scenery in Dandong is natural and breathtaking. There is Fenghuang Mountain with steep cliffs, Qingshan Valley with lush mountains and crystal water, Tianhua Mountain with cragged peaks and dangerous gorges, magnificent Tianhou Palace on Dagu Mountain as well as the historic Sino-Japanese War field on Dalu Island. In the spring, a multitude of birds fly over the marsh and the peach trees are in full bloom at the estuary. When the autumn comes, maple leaves make the Tianqiao Valley a colorful world, and the maidenhair trees along the roads decorate the city center with gold.
