Tourism zone planned with Russia, DPRK
China is planning an international tourism zone in its northeastern border area with Russia and the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK).
The Tumen River Delta international tourism area will include part of China’s Hunchun City, as well as a 10 square- kilometer plot each from Russia and DPRK, said the government of Northeast China’s Jilin province. The three sides will jointly build tourism facilities.
Visitors shall enter the tourism zone without visas, and shopping will be duty-free, according to officials.
Eventually the Republic of Korea, Japan and Mongolia will join the tourism area via highways, railways and air routes, said Zhao Xiaojun, director of Jilin Provincial Tourism Administration.
