DPRK opens the border for tourists from China

North Korea opened the border for Chinese cyclists: 2 May 35 Chinese from the northeastern city of Tumen (Jilin Province) laid a bicycle route to the North Korean city of Onsong. It is believed in the Tumen tourist bureau that this tour will interest many Chinese who want to get acquainted with the socialist way of life of their neighbors.

In April 2014, the Chinese authorities established a railway connection with North Korea from the northeastern city of Ji'an in order to promote tourism between the two countries. Thus, it became the second Chinese city from which Chinese citizens will be able to travel by train to Korea. The railway departments of the two countries made this decision, given the great interest of Chinese tourists and businessmen to the DPRK. Every year, only the city of Sinuiju on the border river Amnokkan (Yalu Jiang) is visited by tens of thousands of Chinese, mostly from Liaoning Province. Their number increased markedly after the ban on group travel to the DPRK that had been in effect for four years was lifted in Beijing.
