Dandong, China 2010

Dandong is a medium-sized town by the Yalu river, North East China. On the opposite side of the river is Sinuju, North Korea. Because of its proximity to the DPRK, Dandong is a popular destination among Chinese and South-Korean tour groups. Cheaper and more accessible than a visit to North Korea proper, the booming Chinese town has reshaped itself into a border tourism attraction.
