We had an absolutely perfect day with our tour guide - Rogin Luo - who took us for a hike along The Great Wall! Didn't know what to expect and were thrilled to have him as our guide. Very imformative, knowledgable and fun! We go to experience a part of The Great Wall that was unrestored and see all its natural beauty. Got a long history lesson along the way!

After the hike, we all went to lunch at a small place at the bottom of the hill. Located in a house, we ate lunch in the proprietors bedroom! What a hoot! Rogin is the Best of the Best! This tour company delivered for us and we are extremely grateful.

Dandong Tour

The largest border city in China, Dandong is situated in the southeastern part of Liaoning Province and faces North Korean town of Sinuiju across the Yalu River which demarcates the Sino-North Korean border. If you want to have a glimpse of the hermit state of North Korea, a short trip to Dandong is a good choice.

The busy city of Dandong itself is worth your exploring for 1 or 2 days. Its lively built-up riverfront makes a sharp contrast to the bleak shoreline of the other side of the river. The shell-pockmarked broken bridge reminds you of the Korean War. Tiger Great Wall is a restored stretch of the Wall with a length of 1250 meters, built in 1469, often regarded as the eastern tip the Great Wall built in Ming Dynasty.
