day number 3 --Tumen, north korea border

We met the same driver at 10am the next day to start on our trip to tumen...it took 2 hrs to reach there and we took alot of photos on the van...so to show u what the place is like and how it looks un-china-ish 

the tolls station to show we gg out of yanji city

the expressway..everything looked so organised here..it;s unbelieveable.even the mountains looks well arranged

The traditional korean houses..with chimneys and all

The more modern houses

the small road leading to the farms

the farm area

and then..we reached the first destination! The river border

over there nkorea is known as nanyang korea

the river that seperates chian from n.korea

the tradtioanl korean fishing boats that take tourist down the river...a group of south koreans went to take the ride at the time we took this photo

all of us in front of the river

next was to the bridge, Half of it belonged to china, half to n.korea....unless u ahve a pass u cnat walk on the north korea sides or u will see guards chasing after u

e everyone on the bridge needs to be escorted by a guard
