Overview

Dangdong was originally known as Andong. It was the seat of a protector-general (a military duty assignment to preside over submitted alien people) in Tang Dynasty and a strategically important border town of military significance. Dangdong was later opened as a port for foreign trade by the then government, which set the pace for its industrialization process to take off and rapid development of its urban businesses. In no time it became the goods traffic node for Liaoning province and east of Jilin province as well. Since then it earned itself the name of "window of import and export".

As the largest seaboard city on the northern border of China, Dandong is naturally endowed, historically imbued and culturally cultivated. It is well known for its scenic beauty and spots of historical interest.

Fifty years ago, belting out aloud the lyrics of a marching song " March on dauntlessly and march on courageously", tens of thousands of Chinese troops fearlessly crossed the Yalu River to fight for the nation and to defeat the invasion from the western power. The once calm waters of Yalu River suddenly attracted worldwide attentions.

Yalu River, flanked on both sides by China and Korea, boasts numerous natural and cultural attractions such as vast and stunningly beautiful Shuifeng Lake, the Hushan Great Wall, the bullet-scarred Duanqiao Bridge ocross the Yalu River for memory of the war. It is the northernmost watershed that separates the sea from the river along the 18,000 kilometer-long coastline.

The city of Dandong has established friendly relationship with Korea's tourism authority at the national level and has been offering tourist programs in Korea, which appeals very much to tourists both from home and abroad.
