SHENYANG, April 25 (Xinhua) -- China's first tourist train to neighboring Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) kicked off a four-day tour Saturday with more than 400 passengers aboard.

The train entered the DPRK from Dandong, a land port in northeast China's Liaoning province.

Tourists are mainly from provinces of Zhejiang, Heilongjiang and Guangdong. Some foreigners living in China also joined the tour.

The DPRK became a destination for Chinese group tours on April 12, which is expected to attract tens of thousands of tourists to visit.

A group of Finish students who study in the southern Chinese city of Guangzhou said the trip would give them an opportunity to better understand the DPRK.
