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.
