Dandong Korean War Memorial
In 1950, China went to the aid of North Korea in fighting against the UN forces that occupied South Korea. The city of Dandong, situated on the border with North Korea, is the site of China's national memorial to the soldiers of this war. The Korean War Memorial sits at the top of a small hill, overlooking the city and the Yalu river with views across into Korea. The memorial contains an extensive museum which tells the story of the war from the Chinese perspective.
